Addictions and all compulsive behaviours can take over our lives and waste our money, damage our relationships and wreck our health and maybe even get us in jail. There are many kinds of addictions, gambling, substance, sexual, some phobias, porn, internet, cutting and many more. Specialized addictions counseling or medical care is advised when appropriate. Supportive, non judgemental, compassionate counseling with Dr. Graham will help you get insight into why you turn to harmful addictive habits. You will learn to identify the needs you are trying to meet and learn ways to resolve these needs with more healthy behaviours. Twelve step programs and other support groups may be discussed.

I offer porn addiction and sex addiction therapy. I also offer therapy for different paraphilias, which is intense sexual arousal towards atypical objects, persons or situations. In my opinion, different forms of sex addiction is related to two aspects. Very active sexual fantasies and the presence of a sexual ritual which has a temporary soothing, coping effect from anxiety/stress or feelings of emptiness that may be consciously known or unknown. The sexual ritual needs to be repeated often because it serves the purpose of temporarily reversing the emotions (i.e. feeling alive, powerful, wanted, etc.). The root cause of the anxiety/stress/emotional distress needs to be dealt with in therapy
