“Love Addiction”


This aspect of behaviour may also be called Sex & Love Addiction and includes a very large range of behaviours.

It is often airily said to apply only to women but this is not true. Men and women can have serious issues with Sex & Love addiction. There is an excellent 40 question survey here which encapsulates the experience in a very rounded way.

Recovery in this aspect covers building boundaries, family of origin work, SLAA meetings, and a host of ways to take on low self esteem and the desire to control others by means of sexual behaviours and emotional abuse. So this would include looking at your own emotional and sexual childhood experiences.

I am Carolyn Cowan, a Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist who is also a sex addiction therapist and a member of COSRT & ATSAC.

You can make appointments to see me in Belgravia, central or south London. I can also work via Skype or FaceTime.

To discuss therapy options, clarify questions or to make an appointment I can be contacted by email at info@carolyncowan.com or by phone on 0208 6513233
