Counselling for Partners:
It can feel like your world has ended when you find out your partner is addicted to looking at porn, or seeing a sex worker. There is a level of trust that has been broken and you may feel you will never recover from the shock. Reasons for coming for counselling:
- Process the wide range of feelings following discovery
- Safe, accepting and non-judgmental place to make decisions
- Place to normalise what you are going through – you are not going mad
- Practical advice on next steps for you
- Enable you to ‘SURF’
