Hello I am Malcolm Bateup from MB Counselling Services. I provide both 1.1 and couples counselling using an integrative approach that enables individuals and couples to move forward from being stuck by difficult and complex experiences that have happened out of their control in their lives. Due to the pandemic after carrying out a covid risk assessment I have made an ethical decision to provide specialist video link to enable everyone to feel safe rather than my treatment room. If you would like to find out more I can be contacted through Www.mbc-relationships.co.uk &www.mbcounselling-sussex.com and 07443507711 Take care Malcolm

Thanks for stopping at my profile. I'm an experienced and dedicated psychodynamic therapist and I work primarily with adults in my private practice in Hove. I am very passionate about psychodynamic therapy as I've had the first-hand experience of how it can help people overcome and resolve a variety of issues, from mild to severe. Psychodynamic therapy is an in-depth psychological intervention which is explorative in nature and focused on free expression. Often open-ended, it offers rewards for those who undertake it that can be life-changing, including a robust sense of self, easier relationships and an ability to live free of fear

The idea of starting therapy may be overwhelming. You may be feeling anxious, depressed or lost, and not knowing how you got to where you are now. I aim to listen to you share your problems, stories and experiences. I am interested in what you have to say and understand how difficult it may be for you to share your feelings with others, especially if they involve traumatic experiences. I work relationally, meaning that I am invested in supporting you to achieve your goals.

I endeavour to do this by holding an open mind and creating a safe boundaried space in which we can both get to know you better. I encorporate a range of theories and skills in order to best facilitate your individual process and needs. Within my practice I work with a range of issues such as anxiety & depression, sexual abuse, trauma, sexuality exploration, gender, anger, loss, illness and body image. I am currently working online.

We all find relationships and intimacy challenging - being close to people challenges our beliefs about ourselves and our trusted ways of relating do not always serve us well. When we get stuck over and over again in our intimate, family or work relationships, it is often due to our deeply buried or unconscious beliefs about ourselves. Many of my clients express what a relief it can be to share their problems and to realise that they are not weird or sick. We all struggle for a reason. In a group it can be especially helpful to realise that you are not alone - there are other people struggling with 'what it means to be human'.

Many people come to therapy to explore particular features of themselves or their relationships that are troubling or distressing. Others have a specific issues they want to look at and perhaps change. Coming to therapy or couple counselling may feel daunting especially when feeling confused, depressed, anxious or upset. By processing painful or traumatic experiences, looking at relationship dynamics, addressing unconscious or limiting aspects of behaviour, potential new ways of coping with life's issues can often be found.

Sexual Addiction Counsellors

When should someone seek treatment for sex addiction?

People should seek treatment for sex addiction if they cannot control their sexual thoughts or behaviours to the point that it disrupts their ability to function in daily life, for example by threatening their finances, career, or relationships. This may include spending an excessive amount of time obsessing over sex, planning sex, watching pornography, or masturbating, as well as consistently engaging in risky sexual activities, using sex to escape distressing feelings, or attempting yet failing to control sexual behaviour.

What are the most common treatment options for sex addiction?

Psychotherapy is the most common treatment for sex addiction; therapy helps patients better understand their compulsive thoughts and behaviours and develop strategies to manage their desires. Therapy may be supplemented by medications, such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers, anti-androgens, alcohol and substance use medications, as well as support groups, such as 12-step programs.

How long does therapy take for sex addiction?

Recovering from compulsive behaviour takes time and effort. There’s no precise timeline for treatment, but research suggests 12 therapy sessions may be enough to see change. Treatment for sexual compulsions requires honesty in therapy, a commitment to understanding triggers and developing coping skills, and potential lifestyle changes such as cutting out alcohol or drugs.

What if sex addiction is left untreated?

Compulsive sexual behaviour can have serious repercussions if left unaddressed. For example, if sexual obsessions consume the vast majority of a person’s time, they may lose their job. If they can’t stop paying for sex, their finances may suffer. If they’re dishonest in their relationships, their partner may leave them. If they consistently feel shame, they may struggle with anxiety, depression, or loneliness. Therapy can help people develop the tools to manage sexual thoughts and behaviours that feel uncontrollable.
