Dr. Patti Britton

With over 40 years of experience and pedigreed credentials as a Clinical Sexologist and Sexuality Educator, Dr. Patti pioneered this field and has earned the title of the Mother of Sex Coaching. Dr. Patti's methodologies for helping individuals and couples achieve their desired sexual potential are well known among professionals in her industry. Dr. Patti’s work has been featured on national TV programs, such as The Montel Show, Hard Copy, CNBC, NBC, and CBS News. She raised the bar in her field when she published the first book on Sex Coaching, entitled The Art of Sex Coaching: Expanding Your Practice.


Then in 2010, she and her late life-and-business partner, Dr. Robert Dunlap, decided it was time to bring her book to life and start teaching others how to work with clients from this more sex-positive approach. Together they created Sex Coach U to prepare sex coaches all over the world to become caring, competent, compassionate containers, who were fully qualified and ready to address the sexual concerns of their clients. 


Dr. Patti’s true dedication lies in working with individuals and couples to achieve their sexual goals. Whether it’s a desire to heal sexual dysfunction, overcome shame, or deepen an intimate connection, she strives to connect at the heart level. Her holistic methods help each individual work through their fears and blocks to receive the kind of love and pleasure they are seeking to fulfill their sexual destiny.


Uncap your career potential, do what you love, and make the difference the world needs.


What Our Successful Grads Are Saying

The highlight of studying at SCU for me was how thorough it was. The program is structured that it gives you all of the tools and resources you need to really open up a solid and financially successful business in the field of clinical sexology. I come from a business background, the program really helped me understand not just the clinical concerns, but how to have a successful business behind all of this."

Dr. Valerie Poppel

Denver, CO

"SCU has allowed me to enhance my psychotherapy training by adding a sexological perspective. The curriculum of the course is designed in such a way that apart from acquiring comprehensive knowledge on human sexuality and practical skills of coaching, The SAR (Sexual Attitude Reassessment and Restructuring) element of the curriculum was an invaluable way for me to examine and challenge the beliefs and biases I held about sexuality. This, in turn, allowed me to be more attuned and effective working with sexuality-related concerns in my clinical practice."

"Sex Coach U was the missing link on my professional path. Before I joined the program I was already an expert and activist in sexual and reproductive health. I knew I wanted to specialize in sex and relationships coaching.The program gave me what traditional, academic studies in sexology failed to deliver - the foundation of sex positivity. SCU is different from most coaching courses in that it also prepares you for the actual provision of the service, from onboarding the clients, to taking the assessment and preparing the action plan. I'm so glad I've joined this progressive community!"

“Sex Coach U has taught me so much more than I thought I would learn when I started. Not only is it comprehensive and sex-positive, it holds up a mirror so that you can become the person that you wish to be and the best sex coach you can be. Through this training I feel confident and prepared to work with my clients and help them achieve their best sexual self.”

“Overjoyed is a word I rarely use, but once I completed my studies at Sex Coach U, that’s exactly how I felt. After going through this training, I knew, without a doubt, I would be considered one of the premier Sex Coaches in the industry.The training not only enlightened and informed me, but it also tested me and called my judgments to the carpet. This two-fold experience is one of the most valuable assets this training has to offer.”

The highlight of the program was getting into the topics around women's sexuality in particular because I always found that very interesting. Plus, it opened me up to the idea of working with not only heterosexual couples, but women as well in a safe and loving space.
