Sex Addiction Therapy

As a leading expert on sex addiction and porn addiction, I provide treatment programmes to clients at my clinics in Kingston upon Thames and Barnes, in southwest London, as well as providing online therapy to clients worldwide.

Sex is a natural, normal and enjoyable part of our lives but sometimes it can become something that feels out of control, damaging and destructive. Sometimes people find themselves addicted to porn, watching it for hours every day, and as a result their work and their relationships suffer. Others become addicted to having sex with strangers or with escorts. They find themselves spending huge amounts of money, putting themselves and their partners at risk of sexually transmitted diseases and damaging their relationships. When sex feels like it has become out of control, then it is time to seek help.

I provide an innovative treatment programme for sex addicts, based upon a range of therapeutic approaches which have been proven to work. Sex addiction is usually a way of managing difficult emotions, and I help clients to understand why they are using sex in a compulsive manner, so that they can get to the bottom of their addiction. I work with them on a programme designed to reduce and ultimately stop harmful sexual behaviour and to redevelop a healthy relationship with sex.

I am an experienced writer and researcher in the area of sex addiction. I am Editor of the Routledge International Handbook of Sexual Addiction and have also written a number of academic papers on the treatment of sex addiction, which have been published in the Journal of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity, the BACP Private Practice Journal and the BACP Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal. I am currently in the process of writing a sex addiction self-help book that can be used alongside therapy.
