Hope for Sex Addiction
Spanning the range from unwanted to dangerous behavior, sex addiction emerges in many forms, becoming a progressively intense preoccupation and behavior.
Accompanying sex addiction is often shame, self-doubt, self-loathing, mental anguish, and a sense of alienation. Addicts can feel powerless over their own behavior, whether viewing pornography, having multiple affairs or sexual partners, or other actions involving distorted and distressing sexual behavior. Addicts may come to view their lives as being out of control, realizing that their addiction always affects other important relationships.
Our Approach to Help and Healing
Therapeutic sessions with a counselor can help an individual understand better the causes of his or her addiction, as well as develop specific plans and techniques to move individuals past their obsessions and compulsions, towards more positive relationships and a healthy life. Counselors can help clients address the numerous issues that often are present with a sex addict, including low self-esteem, financial ramifications, codependency, the need for marriage or family counseling, and depression.
Members of the staff at Covenant Counseling specialize in working with sex addicts to discover their life again, breaking free from their addiction and being restored to a sense of freedom.
