Sex Addiction Therapy

Sex/porn addiction is a very real problem and can have devastating effects.

 

It is not defined by certain sexual activities rather it is a term used to describe sexual behaviours that feel out of control and have a significant negative impact on a person’s life and wellbeing.

It is reported 1 in 20 people struggle with sexual behaviour that feels outside of their control. This is a growing problem affecting ordinary people. Yet, despite certain behaviours causing significant problems in their lives, the secrecy and shame that often surrounds it makes it difficult for people to seek help and support. 

I am currently undertaking further training to help people (and/or their partners) address and overcome these difficulties.  If you would like to find out more about how you can regain control of your sexual behaviours, please do not hesitate to get in touch for a free, confidential and non-judgemental telephone consultation
