So who is Marie-Claire Thauvette?
Her biggest pride is being a mother of four awesome children, and a grandmother of four sweet grandchildren. She is a graduate from the Institute of Sexual Education and Enlightenment, a board-certified Sexual Educator with AASECT (The American Association for Sexual Educators) counselors and therapists, a World Sexuality Coach, and a Gottman Couple’s Check-Up evaluator. She has been a sexual coach for more than ten years.
Helping Sex Cancer Survivors
Marie- Claire loves to work with all couples and individuals to navigate difficulties in relationships. However, Marie- Claire has a deep passion for helping those who are going through cancer and those who have survived cancer. Her first experience helping a cancer survivor was eight years ago when she helped a friend that had a double mastectomy navigate sex after cancer. She told her friend about her mom’s sex and cancer journey, which was exactly the story her friend needed to hear, to turn her sex life around. M-C told the story of asking her mother, after her breast cancer surgery, “What about your sexual needs mom?” Mom proudly said cheekily, “Don’t worry sweetheart, I have other parts that are working just great.”
When M-C saw the light bulb go off in her friend’s eyes after hearing this story, M-C decided without a doubt, that she would help women and men navigate the world of sex after cancer. M-C wrote a paper on sex and prostate cancer in her post-graduate studies that deepened her resolve to not only help women but also men. She prides herself on her track record; 100% of her clients and students that are positive about improving their sex lives have better intimacy and a better sex life than before cancer.
Sexual Wellness During and After Cancer
The Ottawa Regional Health Foundation states that both men and women report struggling with their sexual health during and after cancer treatment in surprising numbers. Up to 45% of men facing prostate cancer and 49% of women facing different types of cancer struggle with issues like negative body image, fatigue, loss of sexual desire, and physical symptoms like vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, or urinary and bowel dysfunction.
