Course Overview

Vaginismus is a sexual condition that causes difficulty or impossibility of penetration for individuals with vaginas. It is primarily a psychological condition associated with the fear of pain during penetration.

This comprehensive practitioner training equips you with the necessary skills and knowledge to assist your clients in overcoming this condition. By doing so, they can regain a sense of bodily safety and experience pain-free sexual pleasure. 


Drawing on her extensive expertise as a Relationship Counsellor and Clinical Sexologist, Dr Martha Tara Lee has developed this training based on her 15 years of specialisation in supporting clients with Vaginismus. It encompasses sex education, sex therapy, somatic approaches and her unique Formula, enabling you to effectively guide clients towards overcoming Vaginismus.
