Who I am
I'm Selina Nguyen (pronouns she/they) and I'm a Sex and Relationship Therapist. I work with individuals and relationships, offering online and in-person sex and relationship therapy at Good Vibes Clinic.
I love talking about all facets of relationships and sexuality, and I'm dedicated to normalising nuanced and informed discussions about such topics and learning how we can all have better relationships with ourselves, our partners and our sexuality.
With qualifications in psychology, sociology, family and relationship counselling, and psychosexual therapy, I provide the intersection of current research, clinical expertise and life experience. The joys of learning is a core value of mine, so I'm also constantly reading up new developments and trainings in relationship and sex therapy to ensure best practice.
I'm trained in systemic therapy which means understanding who you are in the context of the bigger structures and guiding forces in your life. The lenses through which I see the world and my practice is influenced by being Asian-Australian, queer, feminist and a cisgender woman living without disability. I aim to be transparent in all that I do, and I work from an inclusive, non-pathologising and trauma-informed approach. Anchored in queer and intersectional theory, I believe in empowerment through knowledge, pleasure and community support. Sessions with me are tender, encouraging and collaborative. I acknowledge that very few of us feel equipped to navigate the chaos that is sex and relationships, and that we could all do with more transparency, openness and a little bit of education so that's why I'm here.
Areas of interest/specialty include: relationship concerns and conflict, sexuality through life changes, sexual or performance anxiety, lack of desire/arousal, and working with queer folks, people of colour, non-monogamy and other underserved communities
Session cost: $165 for individual sessions, and $209 for partnered sessions.
All sessions are 50-60 minutes.

Sex Therapy & Education
No topic is off limits! I work with individuals and relationships to create their own definitions of healthy sexuality, identity and pleasure.
A lover of writing, I offer general relationship and sex advice through my blog. I also collaborate with media and offer project consultation.
"My counsellor Selina at the Good Vibes Clinic made me feel at ease discussing long standing difficulties related to relationships and sex. Selina was very skilled in guiding me to realise how my current belief system has held me back in relationships and sex and these realisations have assisted to improve my confidence. In my counselling sessions I was also provided skills to move forward in my relationship and sex goals including how to manage certain scenarios and information on dating sites tailored to my needs. I very highly recommend Selina at the Good Vibes Clinic to anyone seeking relationship and sex advice."
