When sex addiction has disrupted your relationship, a need for specialised relationship counselling and sex addiction therapy emerges as a crucial resource for achieving clarity in deciding on your next steps forward, and your relationship future.

As a spouse or partner of a sex, love, or pornography addict, it is important you understand you are not the cause of their addiction, and you have not contributed in any way to escalations of their sexual addiction.

CONFLICTING EMOTIONS

Sex addiction typically triggers strong and conflicting emotions in both partners. If left untreated, such unresolved conflict may lead to long term emotional harm and relationship break-down.

  • Sex addicts commonly struggle with denial, self-justification, partner blame, shame, guilt, anger, self-loathing, disconnection, intimacy problems, feelings of being a failure, and crippling fear of abandonment.
  • A spousal response to intimate betrayal is typically one of indescribable emotional pain, shock, disbelief, numbness, despair, acute feelings of humiliation and rejection, disgust, extreme anger, emotional constriction, and deep mistrust.

Relationship counselling at Sex Addiction Australia is a process of growth, change, and relationship enrichment. Many testimonials confirm that those couples, who have decided to give their relationship a second chance, have been able to create a much stronger bond than they previously have experienced. They describe their new devotion to one another as ‘acknowledging, communicating, listening, and respecting their partners needs, as well as staying true to their own values.’ Putting these new learnings into practise demands vulnerability and accountability, courage, willingness, honesty, openness, forgiveness and self-care on both sides. It’s a lot, and it’s possible.
