Besides codirecting the Certificate in clinical sexology at the Catholic University of Louvain, he teaches at the universities of Lille-III and Metz.

How can women who are distressed by a diminished sex drive understand the causes and find explicit ways of reviving their libido?
That is what this book sets out to do by following the specific case of a woman who feels a loss of desire. We witness the ups and downs of her love life and of her sexual encounters as she experiences a number of very common sexual problems which any woman may experience.
In the course of her sessions with her sexologist, readers are given a unique, inside view of a sex therapy — and in the process they discover practical, explicit means and guidelines to enhance sexual desire.
A valuable approach — given that 40% of all divorces originate with sexual problems.

• 55% of adult women say they suffer from a diminished sex drive which harms their relationship.
• Scientific explanations and practical suggestions.
• A unique sexology ‘consultation’ in straightforward, accessible language.
