Love & Sex Addiction

Love and sex addiction tend to stem from a breakdown in family life and then increasing feelings of isolation and worthlessness. Often there are historical psychological issues which need to be resolved before a sufferer can move forward into a safer, less damaging future. That’s where our sex addiction treatment can help.

Symptoms of Sex Addiction

As is a common symptom of sexual behaviour and is common to almost all addictions is a problem with self-care and self-regulation. Achieving a sense of self-governance is a part of the treatment to sex addiction among others.

Many people are trapped in the never ending cycle that is their addiction with its loss of control, shame, distress and severe negative impacts on work, relationships, finances and self-esteem. Yet the pros seem to somehow outweigh the cons as they crave the irresistible sexual rush, regardless of the ever apparent consequences.

Sex Addiction Treatment

Treating sex addiction is far more effective when the addict is completely immersed and integrated in the programme. They will need a variety of counsellors and different methods to ensure they recover and as no two people are the same every programme must be unique and bespoke to the individual’s requirements.

If sex addiction is just the tip of the iceberg, then personal shortfalls, a self-defeatist attitude, trauma from past relationships with family and other, and personal conflicts they may not even be aware of must represent all that cannot be seen otherwise known as the bottom of the iceberg. There will be no freedom from their sexual addiction until all issues from the bottom of the iceberg have been effectively resolved.
