Sexofunctional Therapy (Therapie Sexofonctionnelle) is a sexological approach, based on the principle of sexual function developed by Dr. Francois de Carufel (a Canadian psychologist with vast experience in Clinical Sexology).

The main goal is to help the person improve his/her sexual life on a personal, social and interpersonal level.
The psychotherapeutic tools, along with the concentration or relaxation practices, are specially designed to help the person get to know his/her body, his/her mind and the way they function.
Emphasis is given to the development of the sexual dynamic of the individual, his/her sexual harmonization and social awareness concerning their sexual relationships.Dysfunctions treated by a sexologist following the Sexofunctional Therapy include :
Sexofunctional Therapy can also be helpful in the individual’s smooth transition through the different phases of sexual life (puberty – majority – menopause – mature age).
The sessions are complete therapies, often organized around specific exercises that help the individual improve his/her sexual life.
The novelty and the effectiveness of Sexofunctional Therapy is based on the fact that it consists of the sum of biological, personal and social aspects of human sexual functions.
