In July 2018 the World Health Organisation finally acknowleged the fact that Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity is a reality. The WHO has recognized 'Compulsive Sexual Behaviour Disorder' - which functions as a term encompassing 'sex addiction' and 'porn addiction' - as an impulse control disorder.

If you are reading this you may be concerned that you own sexual behaviour has become compulsive and addictive (which, for example, may include pornography and masturbation, use of prostitutes and affairs) and are wondering how you can stop it from spiralling further out of control? Equally, you may be a concerned partner who has caught your partner sexually acting out several times and, despite past commitments to stop, are wondering when it will ever end? If either of these statements apply you have found the right place. You do not need to suffer in silence any more. I am a UK qualified sex and pornography addiction therapist with over 10 years of experience. Please contact me to book an assessment or to discuss the recovery process from sexual addiction.

If you have an addiction or a compulsion that affecting your life I highly recommend you see Charlie - as he will help you change your life just in the way he helped me change mine. I didn't think I could be helped or even needed to be helped however, Charlie made me see firstly I had a problem and secondly he knew exactly what to do to help me address it. I am currently 1 and a half years clean and sober of my addiction and I couldn't be happier.
