Hypnosis and Pornography Addiction

No one is born with an addiction to sex or pornography. We have to learn it.

What starts as an infrequent and seemingly harmless erotic adventure—a fling here, a click there—can so easily run away with us. Then, all too soon, we can find ourselves practically compelled to chase that encounter, access those sites, enter those chat rooms.

With repetition, the overwhelming and often all-consuming desire becomes an almost automatic behaviour. And, before we know it, we have become addicts.

With the expansion of the Internet and its easy accessibility, more and more people are having their lives wrecked by this insidious and powerful addiction. The vast majority of pornography addicts are men, though women too can also experience this particular addiction.

Internet pornography addiction is a form of sex addiction.

The consequences of pornography addiction, like those of sex addiction, can be considerable. Relationships can be ruined, reputations sullied. Many are so compelled to view Internet porn that they do so at the most inappropriate times and places, sometimes even putting their jobs and livelihoods at risk.

Many people find themselves running up massive credit card bills as they chase after sexual experiences; paying for access to one Internet pornography site after another, as their addiction spirals out of control.

The stress and anxiety that all of this causes, together with the loss of self-esteem, is simply part of the price paid by the sex and Internet pornography addict.

Subterfuge and secrecy so very often force the individual to lead a bizarre form of double life. It is a life most often filled with anxiety and guilt, shame and remorse.

Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind, helping the individual to neutralize these powerful drivers and replace them with a more harmonious way of functioning.

If you or someone you care about is experiencing the destructive and potentially devastating effects of sex addiction or Internet pornography addiction, do not despair, help is available.
