An accredited member is someone who is in good standing with the Society and who has met the minimum standards for accreditation as a Psychosexual Therapist or Sexuality Educator.
There are many people who identify as a sexologist or sexuality expert however, the Society has developed a system of accreditation to ensure the public is protected with only trained, qualified and experienced sexologists providing professional sex therapy or sexuality education in Australia. Our accredited members have worked hard to become educated, experienced, and trained in the speciality.
Psychosexual Therapists and Sexuality Educators specialise in a variety of areas, so it is important to enquire if they are qualified and competent in the specific issue you are wishing to engage their services for.
A Psychosexual Therapist should have a primary degree or qualification in a mental health related field such as psychology, counselling, nursing or social work with advanced studies in Sexology.
Sexuality Educators may come from a more diverse range of backgrounds including teaching, nursing, therapy, media and gender studies, and the arts, with advanced training in Sexology.
