Marion Wade's biography

Marion Wade

I have worked as a sexuality counsellor and sex therapist since 1997. I work with people who are dealing with a range of personal and emotional issues, problems and life events which affect their sex life. Some people are trying to come to terms with who they turn on too, how they identify themselves sexually and the way they express themselves sexually. Some are puzzled - they’ve lost the passion they used to feel with the partner they still love. Some are concerned about their body image and whether they are normal. Some feel lonely, blocked, bored or abnormal. Some are in pain and their relationship may be in conflict.

Issues clients bring to sex therapy include:

  • wanting to have orgasms
  • ejaculation difficulties – rapid or delayed
  • erection difficulties
  • low desire or no desire
  • desire difference with one’s partner
  • difficulty with sexual intercourse
  • persistent vulva pain, vulvodynia
  • curiosity about themselves and their sexual response
  • pornography use, addiction
  • body image difficulty
  • sexual abuse
  • trauma
  • stress
  • lack of confidence
  • communication problems
  • challenging relationship events
  • alcohol and drug problems

I provide supervision to counsellors, therapists and other health practitioners. I also provide professional development training for counsellors, psychotherapists and other health practitioners. My original training and work experience was in general and mental health nursing. This included counselling, psychotherapy and group facilitation in the Wellington Adult Mental Health Service.
