in your life and you can't seem to stop on your own?
Is your or marriage
damaged because of compulsive sexuality?
You might consider
Recovery Coaching. Counseling focuses on healing from the past.
Coaching helps you move towards a goal: freedom from sex addiction.
Just as a coach in sports is going to give you direction, you will
receive direction on what to do get get porn and masturbation out of your
life. You will learn what to do and what not to do. Trying
harder in any addiction doesn't work. For sex addiction, will-power is
like gasoline to the fire of lust. It increases the desire and grows
the obsession. In coaching you will learn other ways to deal with life
besides acting out sexually. You will visit the past only in as much
as it helps you get to the future you want. Coaching can possibly save
your relationship if the addiction has grown to destroying your marriage.
Erik Bohlin, M.A has worked with hundreds of
addicts who have learned the specifics of how to recover. While Erik
practices as a professional counselor, he is acting as a coach when working
with people over the phone or with Skype. Counseling involves healing
the past and is better done in person, face to face. Coaching save
travel time, is private, confidential and is focused on giving your the
tools. Not all situations allow for coaching. When there is
depression, severe anxiety, feelings of suicide Erik might suggest
counseling or work together with a client's counselor.
