The therapy aims to restore psycho-sexual welfare to the patient and couple by raising their awareness that their sexual dynamics and personal experiences and fears can be changed. For this reason, engaging in the therapy itself should not be seen as a sign of failure, but as a strength, and the first step needed to improve the individual and the couple's quality of life.
A sexology treatment program can include a variety of different specialists (gynecologist, urologist-andrologist, psychologist).

An increased ability to manage resistance and difficulties within a couple leads to improvements in the quality of sexual and relational life.
