Porn Addiction Hypnotherapy

What is Pornography Addiction?

With the rise of the Internet in the past 20 years and the ease in which pornography can be accessed, there has been an rise in the number of men who have sought treatment with me for the issue.  The fact that the internet can be accessed from our beds hasn’t helped in the form of smartphones.

Symptoms of a Porn Addiction:

  • The inability to control the urge to view porn.
  • The inability to stop the purchase of porn.
  • The deteriorating state of their relationship due to the consuming nature of the compulsive habit.
  • Development of a social phobia or a restricted social state due the addiction.
  • Excess spending of money on the addiction.
  • Neglecting personal and professional responsibilities by “wasting time” on the addiction.
  • Feeling emotionally and physically exhausted.

Who comes to see me for help with this?

Straight and Gay Men from all ages come see me for this condition. From professional business people to students, to retired men. It affects all walks of men (and some women too!) because of the nature of the world today with the ease in which it can be accessed from our phones.

Hypnosis as a form of treatment for a porn addiction:

 

My Porn Addiction Hypnotherapy Program

My program consists of three sessions. Three sessions are normally recommended . Some see satisfactory improvement after one session but three or more are recommended.

Case Study: Stephen (name changed for privacy reasons):

In 2011, “Stephen” came to see me because he was ‘wasting too much of his life on porn’. He didn’t have energy to do the real things he wanted to do in life like achieve exercise and professional goals because he felt he was constantly exhausted. Over the course of the short number of sessions he felt he was able to ‘reset’. He has since come back to address other issues.
