Understanding and Overcoming Sexual Addiction

Sexual addiction, characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and acts, can be disruptive and distressing. Alberta Counselling Services provides compassionate and confidential support to individuals grappling with this challenge, offering strategies to understand, manage, and overcome the addiction.

Exploring Sexual Addiction:
Sexual addiction involves persistent and escalating patterns of sexual behavior acted out despite negative consequences to one’s health, relationships, and functioning. It’s important to address this issue with sensitivity and understanding.

1. Recognizing the Signs:
Key signs of sexual addiction may include a preoccupation with sexual thoughts, behaviors that are difficult to control, and continued activity despite adverse consequences.

2. Addressing Underlying Issues:
Often, sexual addiction is linked to underlying psychological issues like anxiety, depression, or trauma. Our therapy sessions aim to explore and address these underlying causes.

3. Developing Healthy Coping Mechanisms:
We assist in developing healthier coping mechanisms and strategies for managing urges and maintaining control over one’s behavior.

4. Rebuilding Relationships:
Sexual addiction can strain personal relationships. Part of the recovery process includes working to repair and rebuild these relationships, fostering trust and understanding.
