Are you struggling with sex addiction?

If you are struggling with sex and love addiction that don’t serve your best interests then seeing a CBT Therapist can help you with your addiction.

What is addiction?

Sexual addiction, also known as compulsive sexual behavior or hypersexuality disorder, is characterised by the compulsive need to engage in sexual practices and the inability to exercise control over sexual desires and sexual cravings.

Sexual desires and urges are a normal and healthy part of life. But in the case of sex addiction, these urges become overwhelming and the resultant decisions and actions can be extremely destructive.

When to seek treatment

You should consider treatment for your addiction problems when:
You are finding it hard to cut down on or control your addictive behaviour
Your missing work or other important events to have sex
Your engaging in unsafe sex practices
Your developing depression or depressive thoughts
You have a tendency to use sex a way to avoid emotional distress
You have an inability to form intimate emotional relationships with other people
I was sceptical and could not believe that talking about something so private would help, but it really did.

This has made a huge difference to my wellbeing and how I manage emotions, stress and avoidance is no longer my go-to place.

Having to sit down and go through everything has helped me to rationalise what I did want and what I didn't want. I was able to rationalise what had happened and am now able to move on.

The Onebright difference

What you need to know

Cognitive behavioural therapy has shown great success in treating addiction when used alone or as part of a treatment plan that utilises other therapies.
Sex addiction is any sexual activity that feels "out of control". This could be sex with a partner, but it can also mean activities such as pornography, masturbation, visiting prostitutes or using chat lines.
Some people are unable to control these urges and actions, despite the difficulties they may cause in their relationships, finances and professional lives.
Some people may also have a dependency on sex and sexual activity to numb any negative emotions and difficult experiences. This can have a negative effect on the person's quality of life and on those around them.
