I am also a sexologist and clinical naturopath so we take a wholistic approach to your treatment. I look at the mental, emotional and physical causes for your behaviour.
People are often very embarrassed to get help for sex addiction but there is no need this is what I trained to do in clinic every week.
What is sex addiction?
It’s when your sexual libido and activity is detrimental towards your everyday life.
Sometimes in a relationship the partners desire for sex are ill matched and one partner pesters the other partner for sex.
You may be constantly going outside your relationship secretly to find sexual satisfaction.
It may be when casual sex is the only or dominant way you connect with others.
For some people it is an obsession with meeting other people on-line on dating apps for sex.
What causes sex addiction?
There may be physiological reasons you sex drive in overdrive because of imbalanced hormone levels. So, I may order tests to check those levels.
Perhaps you have an attachment disorder so you are unable to connect with partners on a deep emotional level.
It could be because you have become involved in drugs that distorts your sexual appetite.
You may not have been taught good boundaries around what is safe behavior and what is not.
You may have underlying mental health problems and the sex obsession is part of a complex of behaviours that puts you at risk.
Unsafe sex may leave you open to infections such as hepatitis B, HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis or other genital and urinary infections.
Hiding your sexual obsession
You may be hiding your sexual obsession from your partner. This a time bomb because thing have way of coming out and when such secrets do it can destroy relationships.
Some people use pornography behind closed doors instead of interacting with partners and family.
If you are having illegal sex or watch illegal pornography in the dark web. Be aware digital footprints are always monitored.
Being prosecuted for sexual offices my put you on sex offenders register, you may lose your job and be unable to get many other jobs. You may even become estranged from your family.
Perhaps you not out about your sexual orientation so you need for sex out way your need for honesty with those around you.
What is good sexual behaviour?
Good sexual behaviour is that which adds to your well-being and the well-being of your partners.
It’s not a value judgment about the frequently of sex because some couples may have sex three times a day and some once every three months.
Also, good sexual behaviour is when it takes place and there is not harmful risks for others.
Its also when you are having sex legally and not having sex with minors or forcing sex on others.
A holistic approach to sex therapy
Everyone is different so one size treatment does not fit anyone.
We have to consider your physical, mental, emotional, relationship, familial and social situation.

Every treatment plan is different because I want to maximise all of your resources to help you recover.
