Sex Addiction Counselling

Sex addiction can be described as an intimacy disorder, one in which reality and the capacity to be intimate are distorted. This form of addiction can present itself in various ways, but the common factor is that there is a preoccupation with behaviors of a sexual nature, a loss of control, significant consequences, and a continuation of behaviors despite these negative consequences.

Once an individual has progressed to problematic sexual behaviors, professional help is required. This is due to the fact that someone with a sex addiction will continue to engage in problem behaviors, even though there are significant risks to relationships, health, safety, or finances; legal matters may also be present.

The treatment of addiction requires a skilled professional along with a support system and recovery plan.

I have completed training to become a Certified Sex Addition Therapist (CSAT), through the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). You can go to www.sexhelp.com for more information, or to take the SAST (Sexual Addiction Screening Test) for no charge.

Addiction isn’t about substance – you aren’t addicted to the substance, you are addicted to the alteration of mood that the substance brings. Susan Cheever
