Porn internet has become very popular in our culture and society and the impact of Porn Addiction is still relatively unknown and not discussed. I have together a 15 point checklist / quiz for you to complete. These are some common traits of porn addiction from the men I have worked with.
This Porn Addiction Checklist and Quiz will help identify if you are addicted to porn and the impact it's having on your life, work and relationships.

Sex Hypnotherapist and Wellness Coach
I have lost count of the number of times a client has said to me "I tried sex therapy but all they wanted to talk about was my childhood". The sessions didn't go anywhere and the client made no steps forward.
Traditional Sex Therapy focusses on the past - and although some answers may live there - it doesn't help the client in the here and now. Sometimes we do need to return back to the past to learn, create awareness and understanding, to heal and bring that back into the present day allows a new way forward. But during the therapeutic process the skill is knowing when to move on and return back to the present with your client.
There has been great advancement in sex therapy over the years and it's slowly becoming more holistic (working with the mind, body and heart).
My wish is that sex therapy is modernised. To bring it in alignment with today's world. So many people are disconnected from themselves, body and heart the traditional sex therapy methods are not always applicable in this day and age.
People want to be more connected to themselves and their sexual partner, to tap into their sexual potential, their sexual energy and essence, to feel more, to align their mind, body and heart and they want a process which enables them to do this. Just talking about this is not enough - as it doesn't engage the body or heart.
Change and transformation can happen much quicker than people think. I have witnessed this in myself and my clients. Life long sexual dysfunction and issues resolved within 2-6 sessions. That's because I have dedicated my life to learning from the best, researching sexual potential, masculinity and femininity. I teach my clients not only to think differently but also to embody and embed the changes they make in their body and heart.
Hopefully traditional Sex Therapy will catch up to the needs of men and women who want to transform their sex life.
Many put hypnotherapy into the box for simply working with stop smoking, phobias and weight loss. Yet, hypnotherapy is suitable to work with many complex and challenging situations (as long as the Hypnotherapist is trained to do this).
I have trained and studied for over six years - and that doesn't include all the additional training I have undertaken - to be able to work at the level I do. I also have attended many training retreats, workshops, been mentored and coached by some of the world's (in my view!) best. I am driven, hungry for knowledge and passionate and only want to learn from the best!
Hypnotherapy is indeed a powerful process to use - as it dives in deep to the unconscious (it's not as scary as it sounds!) and enables you a deeper understanding of yourself and how to take the appropriate action to resolve the issues in your life.
It's not a magic wand where you come in for a session, close your eyes, be hypnotised and then leave and your magically transformed! Creating change is on one hand simple and on the other hand complex - as we are a system of mind, body and heart. So it's essential to address all parts of you when we work together. This creates a sense of feeling more whole, grounded and centred. You will learn not only how to think differently but also to embody the changes in your body so you actually get a sense (and create new body memories) of what confidence feels like within.
Hypnotherapy is a wonderful process to use for many of life complex problems - from sexual dysfunction, addictions, and the journey of learning to love yourself.
If you are considering working with a hypnotherapist - ensure the person you are seeing are suitably qualified and experienced to work with the issues you are presenting. Especially with sexual issues, addictions, relationships and other life challenges.
I wish you all the very best - and if you want to ask me any questions on hypnotherapy and how it can help in your life get in contact my number is 075 3421 3557.
