Sex Addiction Counselling and Therapy
If you or a loved one is experiencing sex addiction, you are probably feeling like your life is being controlled by unwanted urges, compulsions, or behaviours. Sex addicts often feel intense shame and guilt as a result of their behaviours, yet find themselves unable to stop. This becomes especially destructive when the strong negative emotions lead to a downward spiral that drives increasingly frequent, harmful, or risky behaviours.
Some of the behaviours that can be considered a sex addiction when they interfere with the way you want to live your life include engaging in:
- Online chat groups
- Strip clubs
- One night stands
- Massage parlours
- Increasingly risky sexual behaviours
Sex addiction can be devastating for individuals and their families, particularly due to the stigma surrounding sex and sexuality in our society.
LCC Treats Sex Addiction
With effective treatment and counselling, sex addiction does not have to rule your decisions and your life.
Our caring counsellors and therapists are experienced in helping sex addicts through a recovery process using a holistic approach. We take the time to understand the whole person and their story. Your counsellor and therapist will help you understand the specific nature of addiction and explore how it applies to you personally, including the potential emotional and physiological reasons for your behaviours. In many cases, sexual addiction is a symptom of deeper issues which must be addressed to achieve true healing.
Your counsellor and therapist will support you as you develop and strive toward treatment targets by promoting real change. In time, you can learn to relate differently to both your sexuality and others in your life, achieving a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle that is not controlled by unwanted behaviours.
If you think you are experiencing sex addiction, we invite you to contact us for a confidential and complimentary 15 minute consultation. We will assess your needs, understand your concerns, and match you with the right therapist. Call 905-231-2273 or submit the form on the right of this page.
