FREEDOM TO LIVE YOUR FULL POTENTIAL

Sex & Pornography Addiction Counselling Melbourne.

We provide pornography addiction treatment as well as cybersex addiction treatment. Prolonged heightened stimulation through internet sexual activities can alter the neurochemistry of the brain whereby sexual arousal is so intensified that a new sexual “set point” is created.

Conventional sex becomes less interesting as fantasy and obsessive desires are more and more indulgent. The need to find new or more risky behaviours becomes compelling. Distorted sexuality becomes incorporated as the new norm.

Breaking the Cycle

Cybersex addiction, like many other addictions, is a treatable condition. With the right help the compulsive, self-destructive sexual behaviours can be addressed and eventually eliminated. You will get support in adjusting to a new lifestyle where sexual acting out is no longer needed as a “medication” for the stress and challenges of daily life.

Damage done to self and others while actively addicted will be confronted in a healthy way with a real possibility of repair. Counselling can then fully focus on the trauma or other core psychological and emotional issues that may be at the root of the addictive behaviour.

Sex & Pornography Counselling can help you to find:

Confidence

You will have the confidence that whatever happens, you will be able to handle it, reach your full potential, and become the person you have always wanted to be.

Clarity

Clarity can help you tackle the obstacles that are holding you back and open up new avenues of discovery and growth.

Performance

You will learn constructive ways to manage the issues that life presents, enabling you to cope with turbulent times, and bounce back from hardship and tragedy.

Focus

With focus, you can cope with life’s stresses, recognise your abilities, and find the answers you seek.

Empowerment

Empower you to discover personal strengths and capacities so that you are able to take control of your life.

Behavioural Change

Together, we can make a real difference in how your beliefs, values, and attitudes influence your daily life.

Learn Coping Skills

During the course of counselling, you will learn skills to manage your addiction.

You will learn to recognise your triggers and identify your internal warning signs that the addiction cycle has started. You will learn to disengage from negative thoughts and treat them as information rather than absolute truths.

Sex & Pornography Addiction counselling will teach you to break these thought patterns. You can let go of past regrets and instead focus on the present, where you can take meaningful action.

Getting to the Root Causes

My Practice is devoted to sex addiction therapy and treatment and rebuilding lives and relationships lost to sex addiction. My Practice follows the addiction treatment model that was originally formulated for the treatment of alcoholism and chemical dependency, which treats the addiction as the primary disorder rather than a symptom of an underlying condition.

“What’s the difference between a counsellor and a psychologist?”

Counsellors and psychologists are both licensed professionals who offer people mental health support. These two healthcare professions are often confused with each other as they overlap in terms of the help they can provide.

Counselling generally refers to short-term treatment while psychologists typically refers to longer-term treatment such as mental health disorders. Counselling can help a person process powerful emotions such as grief or anger, deal with immediate causes of stress and anxiety, clarify values and identify options when making important personal or professional decisions, manage conflicts within relationships, develop better interpersonal and communication skills, or intentionally change unproductive thoughts and behaviours.

What types of issues can a counsellor assist a person with?

Counsellors can confidentially listen to, empathise and talk with you about the following issues and problems;

  • Relationship Conflicts
  • Life transitions such as the Birth of a New Baby, Separation, Divorce
  • Parenting
  • Anger Management
  • Domestic Violence
  • Battling Addictions
  • Dealing with Loss and Bereavement
  • Resolving Work-related Issues
  • Overcoming Depression, Stress and Anxiety
  • Eating Concerns / Self-Esteem / Body Image
  • Resolving Family and Relationship Issues
  • Increasing Self-confidence and Self-esteem
  • Recovering from Trauma
  • Spirituality
  • Suicidality

Do people often feel nervous about coming to see a counsellor?

Yes, it is common for people to experience some initial nervousness. My Practice always endeavours to provide a warm and understanding environment in which to help people feel more comfortable.

How often will I need to come?

Generally, counselling typically involves a few weeks of relatively intensive treatment (usually 1 appointment per week), followed by as many maintenance sessions as you and your counsellor feel is appropriate (usually fortnightly or monthly).

How do I prepare for my first counselling session?

There is no need to prepare anything specific prior to your initial appointment. It can however be helpful to think about what you might want to talk about in the sessions. If you have areas you would like to target, think about describing these. If you have goals for improvement (in your relationships, work, or self-esteem, for example), bring them to your first session, as well as any obvious obstacles or barriers you are aware of.
