The CICS Online Certificate in Psychosexual Therapy provides a specialist training in working with sexual problems for qualified and practicing counsellors, couples therapists, psychologists and medical doctors. We combine a bio-psycho-social approach with the theoretical framework of pluralism. Pluralism is based on the view that no one therapeutic approach can resolve all client presentations and that different clients are likely to want, and benefit from, different interventions in therapy.
