But really, do they?
If your particular suffering is with compulsively powerful sexual behaviors you cannot stop, you’re experiencing something especially different than what most counselors are especially able to help you with.
Have you heard counselors say things like “Porn is normal,” “You’re just overly sexual,” “Just ignore your partner’s complaints,” “There is no such thing as sex addiction,” or “Just stop it!” As well meaning as these sentiments surely are, they are clearly an ignorance that strengthens chronic active addiction and waves of relationship harm.
The fact is that sex addiction is real, and it is a brain disease. As such, it is virtually impossible to just stop. This requires counseling for sex addiction that includes focused therapy into how one’s sexual behavior is interconnected to other aspects of living life. This demands therapeutic skill and experience to help addicts make vital connections of understanding so new behavior is sustainable over the course of their life.
