What is sex addiction?

Sex addiction involves individuals engaging in long-standing compulsive sexual behaviours. Individuals may experience intense sexual fantasies, desires or urges they cannot control. This can result in excessive or risky sexual behaviours, compulsive masturbation, excessive pornography use or frequent and anonymous sex, which becomes an increasingly out-of-control need over want. These behaviours can harm oneself and others and if ignored can become the main focus of people's lives, leaving to the detriment of everything else.

How can Portobello Behavioural Health help?

Therapy can help to address compulsive sexual behaviours and explore the underlying factors that contribute to these, such as life events, past trauma, anxiety, or relationship issues. In therapy, individuals can learn specific coping strategies to manage urges and complex feelings and help to rebuild relationships and establish healthy boundaries to create a supportive environment for recovery.  Through behavioural health coaching, individuals can be helped to identify triggers, manage impulses, and set achievable goals. Coaching provides ongoing motivation, support, and guidance for clients as they work towards recovery whilst helping individuals establish a sense of purpose beyond their addiction and develop sustainable routines. Importantly a PBH coach can provide ongoing regular motivation and accountability, helping individuals stay on track with their recovery. Clients are supported by working with someone who understands their situation and that there is no judgement.

Some common questions about sex addiction

Do you accept medical insurance?

We do not accept medical insurance.  In some instances, clients are able to reclaim the cost of our services from theirinsurance companies but we do not deal with insurance companies directly. If additional information is required by a client in making an insurance claim an administration fee is payable.

Can you refer me to a treatment centre/psychiatrist/psychologist?

We work with a variety of providers and professionals in the addiction and mental health field. We often work alongside these professionals to provide wrap-around care. If PBH is not the right service for you, or we feel we are not the right fit for you we will happily make a recommendation to another provider that may be able to help.

Do you do therapy online?

Yes. We have a number of therapists who specialise in working with clients online. Get in touch and we can match you up with the most suitable member of the team.

Do you provide confidential support?

Discretion and confidentiality are our bywords. We protect our clients confidentiality rigorously and have processes in place to ensure that information is safeguarded. We pride ourselves on our discretion. Our flexible approach to support means that we can often work with clients in a way which suits their needs for privacy.

How much does therapy/coaching/case management cost?

The prices for our services vary depending on what is required. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements and we can explain what PBH can provide and how much it will cost.

Where are you based?

We operate from two offices, one in London and one in Guildford, Surrey. However, we provide support to clients across the world through case management, coaching and therapy. This may include remote or online support or it may mean our coaches travelling to clients in their home country.

What do I do in an emergency?

Dealing with mental health problems is turbulent and characterised by repeated crises. PBH is not an emergency service. If you find yourself in a situation where someone needs medical assistance or there is an imminent danger you should call emergency services. If the situation is contained and you require rapid response in the form of case management or coaching please get in touch.
