How to find a therapist for sexual addiction counselling
When looking for sexual addiction counselling/treatment or hypersexuality treatment, it is best to look for someone who has training in it. If you go to a therapist who is not trained in it, you might get advice that does not work for you.
Short term therapy can help relieve many symptoms and get you back on your feet. For people who choose to engage in long-term therapy, the results are deeper and often very profound. You can choose the best path for your life, short or long-term therapy or a combination of both options.
