Workshop Overview

Compulsive sexual behaviour disorder? Sex addiction? Porn addiction?

No matter what our clients call it, it’s presenting more frequently in our therapy rooms and is causing a significant problem for an ever-increasing number of people, so we are likely to continue to see an increasing number of clients presenting with out-of-control sexual behaviour causing them significant difficulties in their lives and emotional and mental distress.

This workshop will be a timely, affordable space in which to hone your knowledge and skills and to consider this important subject within a small group of no more than 15 counsellors.


This workshop is set in four parts:

Part 1: To introduce counsellors and psychotherapists to the phenomenon of, and debate surrounding sex addiction and compulsive sexual behaviour disorders.

Part 2: To offer understanding and to help practitioners empathise with the client’s experience

Part 3: We will examine the ethical and legal issues in working with this presentation

Part 4: We will consider those who are impacted but are often overlooked
