I am so blessed to have participated in the first course for certification as a Sexual Orientation Coach with Positive Approaches To Healthy Sexuality. I feel it has thoroughly prepared me to deal with clients in this sensitive area. Comprehensive in scope, sensitive in approach, and detailed in methodology, this course will untangle the nuances of counseling the struggler with unwanted SSA. As more therapists become familiar with this course, many SSA strugglers who have been disappointed with traditional therapeutic approaches will obtain the help they need to progress in the difficult journey towards personal wholeness and heterosexuality.
