So, what is sex addiction?

Sex addiction covers any sexual activity that feels ‘out of control’ and causes problems in someone’s life which, despite trying to stop, they find they are unable to.  It may include a single behaviour or many different types of sexual behaviour.  Some examples are:

  • Compulsive viewing of pornography
  • Chat lines
  • Visiting prostitutes
  • Multiple ongoing affairs
  • Sex cinemas
  • Exhibitionism
  • Voyeurism
  • Compulsive masturbation
  • Fetishes
  • Anonymous sex
  • Telephone sex
  • Illegal sexual practices

Am I a sex addict?

If you think you may be a sex addict then use the ATSAC (Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity) self-assessment tool to check by clicking on this link:

Acknowledging that you have a problem is the first step to recovery.  Now it’s time to explore how you are going to get the help you need. I will work with you to understand the origins of the problem and how you can move towards a healthier lifestyle.  Changing behaviour is challenging and I work with you to manage triggers, regaining control of your life and building positive future relationships.
