Tegan Hecht is a Psychosexual and Relationship Trainee therapist registered with COSRT. Tegan is in the process of completing her Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy and will commence her Advanced Diploma in Couples Therapy in 2018.
Psychosexual and relationship therapy is for any sex and relationship related issue that may be causing you distress and affecting your intimate relationships. She will be working in The Awareness Centre’s long-term low cost service.
Psychosexual and Relationship therapy will be tailored specifically to your presenting relational or sexual difficulty. Homework will often be included to support what you’ll be working on in session together.
As there are many different sex and relationship issues, Tegan’s tool box of therapy techniques are extensive to suit varied sex and relationships issues. She often pulls on Gestalt, Humanistic, Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Schnarch, Bader-Pearson, Imago and Transpersonal techniques and theories to generate the best possible outcome alongside realistic goals.
Tegan’s background is in the holistic/alternative arts i.e. yoga, meditation, bodywork and energy healing and has now moved into sex and relationship therapy as clients would often raise these issues in classes/sessions and she wanted a more solid ground to give her clients the proper support they required. It became clear to Tegan that when clients had sex and relationship issues it affected many if not all aspects of their lives, as if it is the life force that keeps us all motivated to live healthy and prosperous lives. Tegan is passionate about assisting clients in understanding, reclaiming and working through issues in order to restore, not only their sexuality and relationships but, their lives as they want them to be.
Areas Tegan specialises in are relationship or communication difficulties, sex and sexuality difficulties/confusion, erectile dysfunction, painful sex, inability to orgasm, rapid or delayed ejaculation, relationships that are non monogamous and fertility/infertility.
