Sexual Addiction

Sexual addiction is becoming an increasing problem and can have a profound effect on relationships or an individual.

I have completed training in and have experience of working with how to assess for sexual addiction and work with some of the underlying issues that may be causing the problem.

Sex addiction has a function. For someone with sex addiction, rather than finding appropriate and healthy ways of regulating emotion, sex becomes their primary coping mechanism. It becomes a method for managing their life.

Sex addiction is used to manage emotional pain, anger, frustration, to relieve boredom, stress and anxiety and to alleviate loneliness and feelings of low self esteem.

If you feel the above may apply to you I would be happy to meet and do an initial assessment for treatment.

In addition I am qualified to work with couples where the sexual behaviour of one partner is causing relationship problems.
