Sex Addiction Treatment
Joanna Benfield is a leading expert on sex addiction and provides treatment programmes to clients worldwide, using web-based therapy.
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.
Joanna provides 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 Joanna helps clients to understand why they are using sex in a compulsive manner, so that they can get to the bottom of their addiction. She works with them on a programme designed to reduce and ultimately stop harmful sexual behaviour and to redevelop a healthy relationship with sex.
Joanna is Editor of the Routledge International Handbook of Sex Addiction and is currently writing a self-help book for sex addicts.
