Individual Counselling for Sex Addiction

Confidential One-On-One Counselling for Sex Addiction::Sydney&Online

Individual sex addiction counselling is a preferred option for people who are living separated or alone, and for sexual addicts and their partners and spouses, who might feel more comfortable when talking to our experienced professional sex addiction therapist in private. Opening up about very private, sensitive and confronting issues, can be too challenging in the partner's presence. Some couples and individuals achieve recovery faster with individual counselling. Most couples achieve best recovery results by alternating individual therapy with relationship counselling.

Our individual sex addiction counselling sessions are strictly confidential, and in accordance with the Australian law. Your counsellor cannot disclose session details to a third party without your explicit permission. Please refer to our designated Legal page for further information.

Individual and confidential counselling sessions allow counsellor and client to work deep into the problematic origins, that have motivated the development of sexual addictions and compulsive behaviours. This is a critical step in determining a sustainable and successful personal sex addiction treatment and recovery plan.

Individual sex addiction counselling is a one-on-one interactive dynamic, and non-judgemental process. Sex addiction is a fully treatable disorder, and requires the client's full commitment to recovery, be it face-to face in person or via online or phone sessions.
