In the second episode of the Conversations with Counsellors series, I speak with sex therapist Kristi Moore about couples work, body work, intimacy, and her philosophical journey to becoming a therapist.
If I had to choose one type of counsellor that I find the most fascinating, it would have to be sex- and couple’s counsellors. What draws me in is their skillset in navigating interpersonal dynamics, while grappling with huge concepts like sexuality, intimacy, and trust.
In this episode, I get deep into conversation with someone who is exactly one of these awe-inspiring professionals: Sex- and couple’s counsellor Kristi Moore. I ask about her path to become a therapist, which started with her asking some deeply existential questions about how to be a person. I also ask her to try to define sexuality and intimacy for me, which elicits a clear, yet multi-faceted response. And as a last little teaser, we speak about what it means to bring the body into the therapy room, and what happens when people are given permission to talk about their body parts.
