Welcome to South Yorkshire Relationship and Sexual Counselling Service. My name is Steve Keegan and I am a Relate/Hull University trained Doncaster based Couples Counsellor, Individuals Counsellor, Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual (sex) Therapist.

WHY CHOOSE ME FOR THERAPY
I understand that it is a difficult decision to seek help from a Therapist and that therapy may not be for everyone, but I believe that it is always worth giving yourself the best chance of resolving matters before they cause irreparable damage to yourself, relationship, and life. Sometimes we need a little help in resolving our problems from an unbiased outsider with the qualifications, knowledge, skills and experience to help us on our way.
Sex Addiction is often not related to sex at all, but the feelings that people have when they think about or act out the behaviour. There is a need to self sooth and regulate mood/emotion. This is achieved by many people with sex addiction as they have developed this behaviour as a coping mechanism.
My experience and qualifications to date in Counselling/Psychosexual (Sex) Therapy and Addiction work have enabled me to address the issue of sex addiction very successfully to date with many clients.
Sexual addiction, as with any addiction, is a pattern of behaviour that preoccupies an individual, affecting both their physical and their psychological wellbeing. The individual experiences himself/herself as out of control and unable to stop his/her behaviour despite negative consequences. Examples of this might be:
Spending too much time on the pursuit
Stress and depression
Denial of there actually being a problem
Loss of interest in hobbies or social life
Feelings of anxiety and irritability if unable to engage in the behaviour
Engaging in the harmful behaviour
Spending more money than you can afford to.
The behaviour taking precedence over personal relationships and work commitments
Having to lie to family, friends and colleagues about whereabouts and finances
Concealing the amount of money spent on funding a problematic behaviour.
Stealing money or borrowing money, but having difficulty repaying the debt.
Here are some questions that you may want to think about:
Why did the behaviour develop?
When did the behaviour start and what was going on at the time?
What stressors and problems are you trying to avoid?
How do you manage painful thoughts or emotions?
Do you have very little control over the use of internet pornography?
Do you Consistently use internet chat lines?
Do you seek numerous one-night stands?
Do you pay for sex on a regular basis?
Do you have regular extra-marital affairs?
People who are addicted to sex are found in every social class, every religion, and every profession. Sexual addiction can take many forms:
Sex addiction is similar to other addictions such, for example, drugs or alcohol, in that the behaviour is used to manage painful feelings. People with addiction issues can often identify a pattern or a cycle that they get into. Once emotional pain is triggered; this may be sadness, anger, fear, shame, frustration, core loneliness, etc, the person distances and disassociates himself/herself from the emotion and moves into a trance-like state where he/she pursues the sexual behaviour.
At this stage there is no awareness of negative consequences, and there may be a sense of euphoria at the thought of the sexual behaviour. The sexual behaviour is "acted out" and can be, but not necessarily, followed by feelings of guilt or shame. The cycle starts again when emotional pain is triggered.
In treating addictive behaviour, it is important to understand the triggers, because this is where the cycle can be broken. It can also be useful to explore the roots of the behaviour in family background. This can give an understanding of the emotional triggers which can start the cycle.

Illicit Drug / Legal Highs / Alcohol / Gambling Addiction. Fees: £50 per session. Assessment review and formulation: £80 fee
Welcome to South Yorkshire Relationship and Sexual Counselling Services. I am a Counsellor based in Doncaster providing specialist therapy to the local community and outlining suburbs and nearby towns.
Illicit drug/Legal Highs/Alcohol/Gambling Addictions are very complex behavioural problems that people have learnt, but they can be addressed if someone accepts responsibility for their behaviour and is willing to look at behaviour changes. I have over ten years experience to date mainly when working for the NHS in the Drugs and Alcohol Team as a Senior Practitioner and I am very competent at delivering interventions that enable people to change their addictive behaviours. I have completed many courses to date that enable me to deliver evidence based interventions to assist people to address their addiction issues.
Addictive behaviour could be explained as any behaviour that gives temporary or short term pleasure and also provides relief from discomfort although there may be long term adverse effects.
Addiction is generally described as dependence on any drug and results from substance abuse. Any drug or alcohol can produce addiction as can other things such as the internet, gambling, mobile phones , chocolates etc. However the physical and psychological effects of drugs and alcohol are detrimental and actually result in loss of productivity, withdrawal and physical dependence and lack of attention and such other conditions. The primary feature of addiction is dependence as an individual shows increased psychological and physiological dependence on the substance he is addicted to and without the addictive substance the person is unable to return to normal life.
Thinking about and participating in our chosen addictive behaviour stimulates and releases the pleasure inducing neurotransmitters in the brain. The dependence on this feeling of pleasure leads to more such pleasure seeking behaviour and this can spiral out of control and doesn't remain within the control of the individual, who then is completely controlled by their addiction rather than the other way round. This would be the time when someone realises that they have a problem and they would start to contemplate contacting a therapist.
