Partner Support Counselling after Sex Addiction::Sydney&Online
When sex addiction has disrupted your relationship a need for specialised sexual relationship counselling emerges as a crucial resource for achieving clarity in deciding on your next steps and possible future for your relationship.
If you are a spouse or partner of a sex or pornography addict, it is important you understand that you are NOT the cause, and that you have not contributed in any way to the development of your partner's sexual addiction.
Sex addiction typically causes strong and conflicting emotions in both partners, and if left untreated, may lead to long term emotional harm or preventable dissolution of relationship.
- Shame, disconnection, intimacy difficulties, feelings of being a failure, and fear of abandonment are commonly experienced by the sex addict.
- Disbelief, shock, numbness, despair, acute feelings of humiliation, rejection, disgust, betrayal, anger and serious mistrust are experienced by most partners and spouses of sex addicts.
TREATING EMOTIONAL PAIN
Such devastating and life-changing impact on couples does not disappear by itself, and typically requires intervention;
- Intensive sex addiction counselling and relapse prevention therapy for the addict.
- Professional sex addiction sensitive relationship counselling for the couple.
- Caring support and sex-addiction-induced-trauma (SAI-T) counselling for the spouse.
- Despite such strong reactions, over 70% of relationships and marriages initially state a desire for staying together and to working through their upheaval together. Specialised sex addiction therapy and sex addiction sensitive relationship counselling, offered by our experienced counsellors, can make a difference and facilitate successful relationship healing.
