Welcome to Esteem Therapy Yorkshire. I am a specialist in helping those face to face in the Yorkshire region (or anywhere via Skype or online text chat) with porn and sex-related addictive or compulsive behaviours. I gained my training from Paula Hall, the UK's leading therapist and writer on  sex addiction, and am registered with the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC) and am a Relate-trained and experienced couple counsellor and post-graduate qualified executive and life coach.

I am a member of the National Society for Counselling and also the Association For Coaches and work to the ethical codes of both. 

My treatment programme is done on a one-to-one basis (not groups) and is a combination of counselling and practical coaching.  Most clients are back in control within 2 months and leading 'normal' lives within 4-6 months.  The biggest barrier is between reading this and making contact with me - if you have any doubts about your behaviours or they are affecting your quality of life just call or text for a free initial consultation to see if this is for you.
