About

You promised you would not watch online porn or live sex cams again. You feel guilt and shame because you want to stop but cant. You visited a sex worker during lockdown and now you are worried you might have put the health of your family at risk. You plan to spend a short time on dating apps and find yourself spending hours on them, unable to put them down, feeling desperate and hopeless. You have an instant attraction when you meet a particular type of person, believing they are the one. You are in recovery for alcohol / drug addiction, but your compulsive sexual acting out behaviours have increased and you feel guilt and shame.
I help people whose lives are unmanageable due to the impact of sex, love and pornography addiction to heal their pain so they can develop healthier relationships with themselves and others. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and also specialise in treating adults who are enmeshed with a parent. I provide these services to clients in Ireland.
You may be in despair and feel hopeless, but I can assure you there is hope and a way forward. I have helped many people move from the pain of addiction to leading fulfilled and better lives. I will work with you to identify problematic sexual behaviours, including any underlying issues you may have. I will create a safe healing space for you to recover.
