What people say about working with sex therapist & coach Leigh Norén

Go from "not tonight love" to "one more time love"

I’m Leigh Norén, a half-Swedish, half-English sex therapist & coach with a Master of Science in Sexology.

For 12 years (8 as a dedicated sex therapist & coach) now, I've been helping people like you to flip the script that says no sex (or very little sex) means something is wrong with you and your relationship.


My life's work is getting you out of your head and back in your body so you can enjoy sex, confidently connect to your sexuality, and relish melted marshmallow intimacy in your relationship again.

Because here's the thing - you haven't been together too long to feel those butterflies again. And you're neither too young, too old, too busy, or too tired to change your sex life and relationship. 

Below you'll find find a selection of client testimonials all about what results I help my clients get - and how they experience working with me in various capacities. 

"Since I’ve been implementing the techniques our sex life has been much better. After 2 1/2 months, I’m finally experiencing much less stress and anxiety around sex and my desire level is much better than it was. This program has truly helped me!°

- “Maegan”, 33

"My biggest win was experiencing arousal so easily that we ended up having vaginal sex twice in a day. This was on the day we did the couples exercise. Our discussions during the day were more emotionally deep than I can ever remember them being. The last time I experienced truly amazing vaginal sex was years ago so thank you for that!”

- “Grant” 40

"Finally experiencing much less stress and anxiety around sex and my desire level is much better than it was" 

"The last time I experienced truly amazing vaginal sex was years ago so thank you for that!"

"Leigh has helped my partner and I work with a sex drive issue that had been going on for several years. She encouraged us to think outside of the box with discussions and exercises that we would not have thought of ourselves. It was a smooth process which allowed us to pinpoint the root of the problem. I would definitely recommend Leigh to anyone with similar issues, she is a great listener and very easy to talk to."

- “Lisa” 35’’

"It feels like we’ve become so much closer now. I never used to feel up to it, or want to have sex. Now it’s an activity we jump on after putting the kids to bed. And physical intimacy with hubby just feels nice and like something I want (not pressuring like it did before, because I “didn’t want to encourage” sex as I wasn’t in the mood for sex at all). And I suppose my husband’s always been nice-looking, but now when I look at him I think he’s super hot and as sexy as anything!"

- “Hannah & Christian” 31-35

"I never used to feel up to it. Now it’s an activity we jump on after putting the kids to bed"

"I would definitely recommend Leigh to anyone with similar issues"

"Wins right now: we kept talking even though there were some rough spots and we have communicated our desire for sex when we are in bed, which has led to very intimate and fulfilling sex! I wish I had been willing to communicate years earlier" 

- “Rob”, 32

"Last week we had sex four times...which was amazing. I don't think we have done that in a long time. Also we went over your response to the last exercise, and we talked about it for a long time. It was an emotional time, and we bonded really well over that conversation". 

- “mindy", 53

"Last week we had sex four times...which was amazing."

"Wins right now: very intimate and fulfilling sex!" 

"Re:Desire has been a GREAT help in every way possible and my situation with my husband has greatly improved.

We had a strained relationship before joining the program. Still loving but distanced in bed and no romance. No touches outside of sex and irritation if anything seemed like initiating sex. Now there's more enjoyment during sex, less pressure and most importantly increased general wellbeing. We have reached a level of understanding and communication we couldn't have reached without your work. I am forever grateful for the program!"

- “Marie”, 51

"Before Re:Desire I was completely uninterested in sex. My sex drive had gradually gotten weaker and weaker. We didn't talk about it. I had a hard time explaining how I felt and didn't know how to bring it up with my husband. He didn't say much about it either and it was there as an unresolved issue between us.

If we hadn't sought help we probably would have gone our separate ways. Instead, we've become closer than ever. I've gotten better at being in the moment, both when it comes to sex and at work. I even sleep better. Nowadays it's easy to trigger my sex drive! I've noticed that I actually have a sex drive and every morning I can turn that wonderful feeling on. Just walking around and feeling turned on is absolutely wonderful."

- “jen" 32

"Before Re:Desire I was completely uninterested in sex. We've become closer than ever and nowadays it's easy to trigger my sex drive!"

"We have reached a level of understanding and communication we couldn't have reached without your work I am forever grateful for the program!"

"Me and my partner have always been able to talk about everything, but we still experienced a slump when we had kids. I experienced problems with my body and sexuality after childbirth.

This course helped us push past our difficulties and blocks. A few months in sex feels nearly 100% exciting, fun and intimate again. Thanks for this course :) It's helped us a lot." 

- "Karen", 31-35

"If I had known that this type of course was available online, I would have done this many years ago! Every hour I spent working through the program was worth every penny. I have recommended it to all of my best friends; I tell them how good it is, how great the structure is, and how fantastic the strategies are."

- “Lilly”, 44

"You are amazing. Every time I listen to your coaching I feel so good. I do love how you show me the different angles to look at the situation, it is always an eye-opener for me. I am so glad I am part of the Re:Desire Program."

- “Kristina” 41-45

"If I had known that this type of course was available online, I would have done this many years ago!"

"You are amazing. Every time I listen to your coaching I feel so good."

"The past week has felt pretty magical. I feel so close to my partner and everything, including sex, has felt really easy and effortless. We had sex! Twice! This is life changing work.”

- “Charlotte & David” 41-47

“I just wanted to say that what you do, and your program, really helps. Thank you so much! Things have gotten so much better, and we have probably never been as close as we are now, both physically and mentally.”

- “Anna” 26

"We have probably never been as close as we are now, both physically and mentally.”

"Everything, including sex, has felt really easy and effortless. We had sex! Twice!”

"I have gotten better at initiating sex, maintaining my erection a bit longer and having a good sexual experience, with my wife having two to three orgasms before I have my orgasm, although the frequency is only about once a week. I have gotten a bit better at talking with my wife and not avoiding painful conversations (I'm an Avoider), and I have gotten better at not fighting back/criticizing/arguing with my wife."

- “Angela”, 27

"I've got a better grasp on my own and my partner's desires and sexuality now. There's way less stress and pressure around sex, and we're communicating about it so much better. Overall, I just feel happier and more at ease. This program has also allowed my partner to understand me better and why I've been struggling with intimacy for so long. It's definitely brought us closer together."

- “Archie", 65

"There's way less stress and pressure around sex. I just feel happier and more at ease"

"Gotten better at initiating sex, maintaining my erection a bit longer and having a good sexual experience"

"This course has not only increased my sex drive with my partner, but it’s also helped increase my self-awareness on many different levels - a very unexpected but positive side effect!"

- “Vera”, 53

This program was such a HUGE help! I practice the strategies and exercises every day, which helps me slowly get out of my own head and more into my body. I can orgasm again when masturbating! For the first time in 53 years I have also learned to take note of what I am actually feeling, which means that I no longer experience anxiety for hours and hours.

- “Peter” 36-40

"Not only increased my sex drive but also helped increase my self-awareness on many different levels"

"...helps me slowly get out of my own head and more into my body." 

"Your course has been revolutionary! The last five years have been lined by private CBT therapists, dynamic psychotherapy, psychologists, a sex therapist, almost all natural remedies you can think of, and antidepressants…

But your course is what’s really made a difference. Now positive changes have really started happening, absolutely wonderful to be able to experience sex as intensely and beautifully as before. You’ve given me my life back, hugs."

- "Harry" 46

"Working with Leigh has helped us communicate more openly about our sex lives. We better understand and communicate our needs, and we have become more vulnerable and responsive with each other. We have been given tools that have helped us make our sex life more fun, intimate, and more satisfying. In the long run, it's made our relationship stronger and better."

"All my life I have felt anxiety and shame around sex, which led to me and my partner not having sex for several years. The course has helped me understand how desire works and how I work, which in turn has led to a reduction in shame and anxiety. Just wanted to say thanks! I've been looking for something that can help me and sexologists often have a queue of several years, but then I stumbled upon your course. Thanks!"

- “Nick & Layla” 32-35

- "Evy" 36-40

"All my life I have felt anxiety and shame around sex.  The course has helped me understand how desire works and how I work, which in turn has led to a reduction in shame and anxiety.

"(After 2 months) I’ve been feeling more comfortable regarding sex. Specifically, feeling less anxiety about the possibility that sex could happen. And we’ve had great sex twice this week without using meds and it was really intimate during and after. Big wins!”

- “Joni”, 35

"We're having sex more often and I'm finding real pleasure in it. When I joined the program I was sad and desperate and didn’t like the idea of sex at all. I'd tried seeing a therapist, toys, massages, scheduling sex, even going off my antidepressant medications. I really appreciate the opportunity and all the help in Re:Desire. Would definitely recommend it, it's worth it."

- “Ben" 42

"We're having sex more often and I'm finding real pleasure in it."

My partner is already approaching me differently about sex in a way that I’m receptive to"

- “Nathan”, 44

"Nobody will ever regret joining Re:Desire, no matter what, you will get so much out of the course. I should have done this course years ago, if knew what I know now."

- “Morgan", 35

"Nobody will ever regret joining Re:Desire"

"My partner is already approaching me differently about sex"

- “Leanne” 30

- “Michael & lInda” 42-45

Working with Leigh was so reassuring and the whole experience was full of warmth and understanding. I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to work so closely with Leigh and receive the benefits of her knowledge and experience.

Leigh held space for all of my thoughts and questions with compassion and openness and I never once felt judged.  The Action Plan will be a guiding light in moving forward on my sexual journey and it will feel like having Leigh beside me ❤

- "Sam" 40

"My sex life has improved dramatically since I started the program. As a man dealing with low desire, I felt like there was nowhere I could turn because it is such a difficult topic for men.  would not have been able to do this by myself. If you struggle with low desire, sexual anxiety/performance issues, join now! Thank you so much for your help! My wife and I are forever indebted to you."

- “Kaitlyn", 53

Needless to say, the sex was AMAZING! Thank you so much for helping me get out of my comfort zone. It's really having a great impact on our sex life, and relationship overall.

- “Grant" 40

"Having a great impact on our sex life, and relationship overall."

"My sex life has improved dramatically since I started the program." 

"After several years of having problems and a total loss sex drive, I found Leigh and no longer felt alone. She mixes theoretical knowledge of the body and mind with goal-oriented exercises in a great way, which helped me have faith. The sessions helped me get to know my body, how it reacts, and to not feel hopeless, that my sex drive is actually there. Above all, she helped me become friends with my body again!" 

- “James”, 51-55

"Your course saved our marriage. My wife and I had a marriage where she lost all interest in sex and intimacy and only saw sex as something that gives a quick oxytocin boost. No foreplay, no exploration of pleasure, no "pillow talk". There has been a metamorphosis! She now prioritizes her own pleasure and we're developing intimacy and desire together."

- “Billie", 30

"Your course saved our marriage"

"Above all, she (Leigh) helped me become friends with my body again!"

"Before I experienced a lot of sexual anxiety, and my constant rejection of my partner and shutting down physically and emotionally when she tried to initiate was by far the biggest issue in our marriage. Our awareness of our issues, the reasons underpinning them, the years of emotional hardwiring that contributes to both our behaviors, has improved massively. Alongside that, we have more empathy and understanding for each other now, and are both far less likely to get upset when sex or intimacy doesn’t work out how we had hoped. 

We also have action and maintenance plans to help us going forward, so a roadmap for the future. In between, we have found ways to make sex fun and enjoyable again (when it does actually happen), and there is much less tension in our marriage overall now. 

- “Madeline”, 27

"The Re:Desire program has been a very helpful resource in my sexual journey. It equips you with the tools you'll need throughout your life to maintain a healthy and happy sex life with yourself or with others! I would highly recommend this to someone as a quality investment in themselves. Thanks for what you do :)"

- “Ryan", 36

"I would highly recommend this to someone as a quality investment in themselves"

"We have found ways to make sex fun and enjoyable again and there is much less tension in our marriage overall now"

Since we started Re:Desire, we have become more emotionally and physically comfortable with each other than we ever have been. It’s lovely to just be cuddling and enjoying the new way of being together physically. The quality of our relationship deepens as a result of the work we have done with your help in this program. Many thanks!

- “Chelsea", 39

”This couples exercise has been great. It's the most physical connection / affection we've had outside of sex EVER and the most connected and relaxed any of that has felt to me in a LONG time. My husband is also enormously enjoying it and very aligned on progressing very slowly, very attuned to how I'm feeling”.

- "Barbara", 65

"It's the most physical connection/affection we've had outside of sex EVER and the most connected and relaxed any of that has felt to me in a LONG time."

"More emotionally and physically comfortable with each other than we ever have been"

"This course gives you a chance to question and think about so many aspects of yourself - you gain a whole new understanding of both yourself and your partner! I'm really pleased with it! So far, the touch exercise is a big favorite! We get excited about it each time :) Through the course and getting to know your own and your partner's desire, you're given the opportunity to breathe life into your relationship."

- “Maegan" 33

Re:Desire was the best investment we ever made, thank you for helping us get our amazing sex-life back! I loved this course and engaging with my partner during multiple exercises. Re:Desire brought us so much closer than I ever thought possible. When I contacted you, I felt such intense shame and guilt because of my low desire that I couldn't help but cry every time I thought about sex. If I'm ever struggling with these feelings again, I have the tools and my partner's support to get to a better place. Thank you!

- “Louisa & Agnes", 31-35

"The touch exercise is a big favorite! We get excited about it each time :) "

"Re:Desire was the best investment we ever made, thank you for helping us get our amazing sex-life back!"

"The course has helped me to understand and accept myself and my desire. It has been an eye-opener to join the course and I have so far learned a lot and found an acceptance with myself, which has led to increased desire".

- “Lawrence”, 51-55

"This program treats you with so much respect. You don't need to change who you are, the tools in the program are created to fit who YOU are." 

- “Carly" 31-35

"This program treats you with so much respect. You don't need to change who you are"

 "Found an acceptance with myself, which has led to increased desire"

"When I joined Re:Desire I wondered if I might be asexual. After the program I feel more connected to my husband and I feel like we’re thriving as a couple.

There have been major strides with pleasure on my end and being open to trying something new. It’s resulted in us finding a miracle that makes me have an orgasm typically under 90 seconds. And that’s been amazing and worth the whole investment of the program on its own! I don’t even feel guilt or shame anymore if I need something to turn me on, and I am giving myself compassion for whatever I need. Thank you so much for all of your support through this."

- "John" 70

"Before joining Re:Desire we had little/no sex life - and I was always 'in my head' - performance focus. I wasn't connected with my partner which I didn't even realise before joining the programme. 

 Now there is less pressure, more intimacy and sharing - openness. I'm more tuned in to my partner. If you're thinking of joining Re:Desire - just do it - you will feel the benefits."

- “michelle", 48

"If you're thinking of joining Re:Desire - just do it - you will feel the benefits."

"I am extremely grateful for the presence, knowledge and humor during our sessions. It was huge that Leigh really believed things could get better, and enabled me to believe it too.

I have seen psychologists, psychotherapists and priests in talk therapy, but my time with Leigh helped me in the process of really understanding things and moving on."

- “hanna”, 40

It feels really exciting starting this module now! I feel motivated, exhilarated and so ready to explore this part. And I know my partner will be really happy and interested, I can’t wait to share this with him! We’ve had a few conversations lately that show how we can talk more openly with each other now. It’s going to be fun to explore and try out new things in the bedroom together!

- “Kim", 27

"I feel motivated, exhilarated and so ready to explore this part. It’s going to be fun to explore and try out new things in the bedroom together!"

"I am extremely grateful for the presence, knowledge and humor during our sessions".

"I felt" “broken” because he wanted intimacy (sex to him), and I wanted intimacy without the sex part. We had tried marriage counseling a couple times, but were never able to come to a resolution. Your positivity and encouragement have been a blessing, and we are very grateful.

The exercises and your voice notes brought us together on the whole subject, and although extremely difficult in some areas, it helped us to talk about things we had never verbalized. We were better able to understand where we were each coming from. We talked through, honestly, where some of our deepest feelings had been misunderstood. It helped us to be more vulnerable, and open about our relationship and our habits. My husband was unaware of how he was making me feel pressure and stress, and he worked hard to show me that wasn’t his intention, but that he loved me. He wanted to be close, but I was shutting him out." 

- “Lilly”,44

"I have started to feel less pressure and stress around sex. I turn my focus solely to how I can enjoy sex more. I am not faking any more, during sex I really try to enjoy it.

For the first time in our life we have started to talk about sex, what we like and what we do not like. The frequency of the sex is not improved yet but for sure the quality is increased. I have an orgasm most times we have sex.

Joining Re-Desire is one of the best decision I have ever made. After 45 years I have started to enjoy sex. The exercises and Leigh's advice helped a lot to ease the process and remove the stress around this subject. Leigh's approach is always very calming, re-assuring and encouraging."

- “Belinda", 65

"After 45 years I have started to enjoy sex"

"My husband was unaware of how he was making me feel pressure and stress. The exercises (...) brought us together on the whole subject"

"Before Re:Desire we had tried marriage counselling, date nights, lingerie, massages (all the things you mention in your training), but none of it really worked.

We did the couples exercise twice last week and I’ve never been so turned on in my life! I also feel that we are emotionally are in a really good place and that the pressure on me has lessened. It’s like we’ve remembered why we’re still together and why we’re still in love after all these years!”

- "Rosanna" 32

"Sex was some chore that I wanted to avoid. I felt like a bad wife and could feel the frustration and sadness from my husband. It had gone on for so long that a divorce was near. I finally realized that I was the one that needed to change and convinced my husband that if I got some time I could change, so I wanted a “foolproof “ method. Going to a sexual therapist felt so uncertain but this programme had a specific timeframe for when I should see a result.  

As soon as I got the first introduction video I knew this was going to work. Leigh's approach helped me and my partner create more closeness in our marriage. Communication about sex has also improved, and I'm feeling more relaxed and happier overall and enjoying sex a lot more. Plus, we're doing it more often now which is great! It's been really eye-opening to learn about other ways to approach and think about sex, and I feel like I have a better understanding of myself and my partner's desires. If you're thinking about joining Re:Desire, do it!"

- “Louise", 42

"We’ve remembered why we’re still together and why we’re still in love after all these years!”

"I wanted a foolproof method (...) I'm feeling more relaxed and happier overall and enjoying sex a lot more. Plus, we're doing it more often now which is great!"
