Counselling For Same Sex Couples In Sydney&Online::Sex Addiction

Affirmotive Sex Addiction Australia (ASAA) offers same sex professional counselling to lesbian individuals and couples as a part of and solving complex relationship upheaval and family conflict, since 1998.

Many women in long-term same sex relationships report significant losses of sexual desire. For many, such relationship disharmony has its roots in treatable libido disorders, but others suffer the negative impacts of sexual compulsions, including sexual avoidance disorder (SAD), love addiction, and other female sexual addictions. A less known aspect of sexual addiction is known as Sexual Anorexia.


Sexual addiction is defined as Progressive Intimacy Disorder, typically displaying symptoms of escalating sexual compulsions spiralling out of control over time. Being addicted to sex, or loving a woman who is struggling with compulsive sexuality can cause significant emotional injury to both partners, and, in left untreated, may end their relationship.

ASAA offers a specialised and purposefully designed sex addiction treatment and relapse prevention plan for women in same sex relationships who have addicted to sex or love. We equally focus on the specific needs of their spouses who are impacted by their partners' sexual addiction, and who are at risk to developing clinically significant stress symptoms, related to Sex Addiction Induced Trauma (SAI-T).

Most same sex couples report a strong desire to salvage their relationship and to work through their marital discord together. Others may request mediation counselling to reach a friendly termination agreement.


Early spouse support counselling is a critical intervention tool in treating Sex Addiction Induced Trauma (SAI-T) and post-traumatic stress responses in partners of sex addicts. Most importantly, early spouse support therapy can prevent stagnation in personal and relationship recovery, and can assist in preventing Complex Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder (C-PTSD), as a possible negative consequence of sexual addiction.
