We all develop coping mechanisms to cope with every day fluctuations in our emotions and in some of us these coping mechanisms can turn into addictive/compulsive behaviours, which can impact negatively in our lives and in some instances become dangerous to ourselves and others.
More and more clients are presenting with sexual compulsive activities that have become “out of control”. This sexually compulsive behaviour can manifest in many different ways and has become more of an issue since the easy access to pornography etc. via the internet.
Sexually compulsive behaviours affects individuals, partners and families and there are various services available to clients. We can help clients to recognise their needs and give them choices in how to proceed through counselling and therapy.
