Sex Addiction Counselling

Mental Health Counselling for Sex Addiction Problems – Available in Wolverhampton & Online Worldwide

Sex Addiction has entered into the common language of society today and up until recently has not been taken very seriously, although some high profile celebrities have recently “confessed” to being sex addicts. (Charlie Sheen, Tiger Woods, Michael Douglas amongst others) – You can read about Addiction in general here.

Sex addiction can place an enormous amount of strain & stress on a relationship but do not think that it is a problem confined to the bedroom.

Sex addicts typically find themselves watching more and more pornography, perhaps paying for sex, or indulging in ever more risky sexual activities.

Sex addiction displays the classic characteristics of any addiction whether that is alcohol addiction, drug addiction or any other and this is probably due to the fact that when we have sex our bodies release massive amounts of Endorphins (pleasure chemicals) into our bloodstream which create feelings of Euphoria.

Sex Addicts spend more and more time seeking this chemical reaction, often neglecting the other things that they should be doing with their time.

What are the symptoms of sex addiction?

Sex Addicts often demonstrate single-mindedness in the pursuit of sexual activities and the following symptoms or behaviours could indicate Sex Addiction:-

  • Paying for Sex
  • Multiple sexual partners in secret
  • Sex with strangers on a regular basis
  • Swinging
  • Spending lots of money on sex phone lines
  • Masturbating excessively
  • Routinely choosing sex over other important activities
  • Needing the buzz of sex more and more

Is Sex Addiction Common?

Judging by the amount of publicity that sex addiction now seems to be attracting it seems likely that this is a bigger problem than once thought. Although figures of 5% of people has been bandied around, it is likely that the figures is higher and that it just doesn’t get reported as much due to the nature of sexuality and morality in our society.

Men and Women, it seems, are both affected in equal proportions and the growth of the internet has allowed private indulgence in sexual addiction (Pornography in particular) to grow beyond all measures.

Internet sites for meeting like minded sex addicts are easily accessible from the privacy of your own computer terminal!

Therapy for Sex Addiction

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has been shown to be effective for this and related issues.

Our Tranceformental CBT programme will help you to develop a fundamental understanding of your own particular belief systems and thinking styles that have supported your view of this problem.

Once you have gained this deep level of understanding, you will then learn the tools and techniques that will allow you to take control of your thinking and to then be able to take control of the problem.

Transform Your Thinking & Overcome Sex Addiction

If you’re committed to overcoming your sex addiction problems then we highly recommend following our Advanced Tranceformental CBT programme with Paul. Tranceformental CBT is available as Online Therapy if required.

The Tranceformental programme is a highly successful & pragmatic mental health counselling course, run over 10 sessions, that will teach you everything you need to know to understand your problem, identify how unhelpful thinking and limiting beliefs might be reinforcing the issue, and then show you how to make any changes to your unhelpful thinking styles or maladaptive safety behaviours that you may have developed as part of your coping strategies.

Our Tranceformental CBT programme is an evidence-based, research supported approach used by mental health practitioners around the World.

Alternative Therapy Options for Sex Addicts

Although our preferred form of mental health counselling for sex addiction is Tranceformental CBT we also offer alternative psychotherapies for those who might prefer a different approach.

These include:

  • Psychodynamic therapy which focuses more on emotional problems and relies on the Therapeutic Relationship to bring about change. Available with Paul.
  • General Counselling which is less structured but still provides a safe and non-judgmental environment to discuss issues which is therapeutic in its own right.
  • Hypnotherapy is an alternative form of therapy that can be applied to a very wide range of problems and is available with Joan.

Is Addiction Real?

Many scientists now question whether or not an 'addiction' is a 'real' phenomenon created by a chemical 'hook' or is actually more to do with what a person 'believes'.

Some research suggests that addiction is related to the degree of social connection that a person has or has not.
