A sex therapist guides individuals struggling with certain components of sex, such as arousal and performance. Also, sex therapist assess the psychological or physical reasons for their clients' challenges and provide treatment through sex counseling.

Professionals in the mental health, therapy, and counseling fields need to earn state licensure in order to legally work. Although Russian laws do not offer licensure strictly for the sex therapy field, aspiring sex therapists still need some sort of therapy or counseling licensure to practice. Then they can apply for certification from the Professional Psychotherapy League (OPPL) and diploma for retraining, qualification of Sexologyst.

The certification process requires a graduate degree in a mental health, psychology, or therapy field. Candidates must also complete a certain number of supervised clinical hours. You can learn more details about those requirements, and how to become a sex therapist, below.

Our programs generally last 6 months for students, and learners in these fields learn about psychological theory, along with therapy techniques.
Obtaining a Sex Therapist License
Sex therapists do not earn licensure in sex therapy. Instead, they can obtain diploma of retraining as mental health counselors or marriage and family therapists. In fact, for certification, OPPL requires applicants to hold licensure in psychology, medicine, social work, counseling, nursing, or marriage and family therapy. Individuals must apply for these through their state licensure boards, which all set different requirements for various types of licenses.

I am soooo grateful to you for the wealth that you will pass on to us in the form of techniques, practices, theory and just metaphors !!! Just metaphors that are soooo easy to remember, so easy to reproduce, do not require additional time to revise and read. Yesterday I was with a blogger, I met in a story the words about "a scar that aches for the weather", and I already know who she studied with! 🙏 Nastya, I just savor your every word with such a desire, with such an appetite, I write everything down so as not to miss anything! My gratitude knows no bounds !!! ❤️I am grateful to fate, the Universe, you, myself ... everything, thanks to which I met your articles, reviews about you and bought this course a month before the start! ❤️Each your lesson is insight, and about yourself as well!

learned about the course from one of Nastya's alumni, who runs a blog on Instagram
about sex education. The course changed me and my life, most of all I remember the practices. Uncertainty and many complexes have gone from my life, and confidence and knowledge have appeared. I started dancing and painting again. Now I want to get to Nastya's course on tantra! Tasks were given easily, thanks to a simple presentation of information with a large number of examples from life, the difficulty was only in finding time to study.

I was looking for a place to study sexology. I found different schools, everything seemed
to be interesting, and the content of the courses was good, but something was missing for me. I decided that it was not time yet. In the morning I woke up and realized that today I will find what I need. And I found it. After reading Nastya's articles, watching the videos, I felt that it was under Nastya's guidance that I wanted to be sexually enlightened.
My goal on the course is to learn and help women. Also, the goal was to expand your horizons in the field of sexuality. I want to continue my studies in the future. Sex is forever! Yes, I have achieved my goal. I have clients. I have improved my sex life.
We were surprised how scripts can change attitudes, surprised how well attitudes and beliefs work. And ISM! It's just technique - my favorite.
More orgasm has appeared in my life. It's not just about sex, it's about Life in general. Gone is the tension that I'm somehow not like that (I'm talking about fantasies). I have the courage to be myself.
Training was available. I really liked this approach to teaching, theory + practice and live meetings. The chat with fellow students was very helpful and helpful. Feels the Flock
Relatives are happy for me, for my changes. They say that at last we see that this study brings you a thrill. That your eyes are burning.
I want to thank the team for such work, approach, responsiveness. Thank you Yana more, you are always in touch. You always resolve the issue quickly. I want to say to students and potential ones that I envy you a little, there is still much ahead of you!
