Let’s work together to help you overcome your porn addiction
Our therapists can help you regain control over your urges. Approaches applied will depend upon what is considered most valuable for you, and may include one or a combination of Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation exercises, Existential therapy, psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, Dream work, NLP, Hypnotherapy, and other such treatment methods.
The point is to find out what is best for you to manage the addiction and its causes, so you can discover lasting inner peace and real happiness without dependency on something outside of yourself. From the first session onwards, the self-awareness that begins is often enough to help the process to move in the right direction. At Bayside, our natural methods to help people overcome pornography addiction or other sexual addictions do not include medication. Please note while we listen without judgement we are obliged to break confidentiality in extreme cases, for example where crimes involving sex with minors are concerned (through images or otherwise).
How long will treatment take?
No two courses of treatment are the same so your duration will depend entirely on you and on the progress you and your therapist make together. We review progress on a regular basis so we can alter treatment if necessary, or space treatment out and discontinue treatment when warranted.
How is Bayside Psychotherapy’s treatment different?
With training in counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy (traditional and ericksonian methods), NLP and Buddhist psychotherapy, there are many options with which to tackle your addiction, including counselling for couples. The approach is tailored to your needs and progress.
We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all solution. As treatment progresses, we will work together to ensure you’re comfortable and progressing toward being free from pornography addiction. Are you ready to invest energy into real intimate relationships instead of the addiction?
Call us on (03) 9557 9113 or use our contact form to regain control of your urges, and reclaim your chances of having a trusting relationship again. Your call is completely confidential, and there’s absolutely no obligation.
