Sex and porn addiction is sexual activity that feels overwhelming or out of control. Engaging in specific sexual activities, having many partners, looking at porn or engaging in cyber-sex does not make a person a sex addict. Neither does having a high sex drive.
Signs and behaviours of sex addiction.
When someone feels that they are no longer in control of their sexual activity, this is likely to result in harm to themselves, a partner, or to family and friends and their professional standing. Therefore, sex addiction is not defined by the activity itself but by the possible negative effects on the individual’s and families quality of life.

Our trained therapists use a range of talking therapies such as Integrative Psychosexual Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which are effective treatments for overcoming sexual addiction. They provide an opportunity for you to talk about how you are feeling and to make sense of the events and emotions that may have led to this point.
