Do you constantly or interminably experience a sex addiction or obsession?
Is the sex addiction now destroying your quality of life or affecting those around you?
Are you confused and unclear where to reach out for help or too embarrassed to ask?
Are you looking for professional hypnotherapy and sex therapy to get your sex addiction under control?
Sex addiction can destroy your relationships, both personally and professionally.
Perhaps your partner, relatives, friends or work colleagues make comments about your over-sexualised and inappropriate comments and behaviours.
Family members may stop communicating with you and begin to distrust you.
You may feel you need to have sex several times a day or are overtly promiscuous, constantly engaging in risky, unsafe, unprotected sex.
This may not only leave you open to infections such as hepatitis B, HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis or other genital and urinary infections, but may also leave you open to engaging in sex with strangers who you know little about and puts you at risk of physical violence.
At times, over-sexualised behaviours may even have got you in trouble with the law.
Sexual misconduct may involve accessing illegal pornography, molestation, groping, attempted rape, rape, ravishment, harassment, stalking, illegal voyeurism or transmitting illegal images.
You may have been involved in these activities at any age of your life.
You may or may not have considerable feelings of guilt or shame around your behaviour.
You may even be conflicted about whether you are responsible for your behaviour or not.
You might not understand consciously how damaging your actions are to your life until it all begins to fall to pieces and people stop spending time with you.
For some people, over-sexualised behaviours can lead to reprimands, warnings and even being fired from your job.
There can be many reasons why you may have fallen into a sex addiction.
As a natural medicine practitioner (Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association), I might require blood tests to review your hormonal status. An out of balance hormonal profile can lead to over-sexualised and aggressive behaviours.
As a clinical psychotherapist and sex therapist I would be looking at your psychological motivation and drivers of the sex addiction and what is contributing to those out-of-control behaviours.
As a clinical hypnotherapist I would also be using hypnosis and hypnotherapy to help you get those behaviours under control fast. With sex addiction it is important to get those behaviours under control so they do not further interfere with the quality of your normal, everyday living and relationships.
So, when you are having trouble with sex addiction or people are complaining about your over-sexualised behaviour, it is important to act and get professional help.
These are complicated behaviours and addictions that need to be reviewed and treated holistically to help you move forward.
