Intimacy is a core aspect of marriage, so most marriage counselors will be able to offer some degree of help in this area. It might be wise, however, to seek a marriage counselor who specializes in intimacy issues, as there may be additional help they can offer above and beyond what a typical marriage and family therapist can provide. Intimacy issues also may originate with other mental health issues or medical conditions, so be sure not to ignore any signs that there may be an underlying problem. Be as open and honest with your counselor as you can, so they can give you the best advice.

It is very common that a couple suffers from intimacy issues, or to be more precise they are not satisfied with their sex life. For this you should consult a counselor who helps you understand your relationship and develops a sense of trust. Marriage counselors will surely help you out. It is very necessary to look for a right counselor/therapist who can help you build intimacy in your relationship.

Definitely, marriage counsellors are trained to handle all aspects of a relationship, including that of intimacy. However, if your itimacy issues stem from a medical issue such as infertility or problems with the actual acts of copulation, it could be more useful to head down to a fertility doctor instead as they can help to find out the root causes of your medical problems.

I think they should be able too! They are trained to handle and help resolve issues in all aspects of marriage after all, and intimacy is definitely a very huge component. I know it can seem daunting to pour out the information on the most private aspects of your life to someone who might be a complete stranger, but I think that's the beauty of it. You're sharing with a stranger, who you probably will not see anymore after the sessions. So spill the beans, but make sure you're honest about it or you won't be helping yourself at all!

A marriage counselor could be of help with intimacy issues, I confirm. To allow the help needed it is very important to be honest with your therapist and to trust him/her. Maybe you or your partner won't feel comfortable sharing intimate details of your sex life in front of a third person but, believe me, there is nothing to worry about. Your therapist is a reliable and well educated professional. Just relax, provide him/her the information needed and let him/her do his/hers job :)
