  • Ethical considerations
  • Focus of therapy
  • Opportunity, attachments and trauma
  • The cycle of addiction
  • Breaking the cycle and rewiring the brain

“I can honestly recommend this workshop to any Counsellor who is seeking to gain further understanding around porn addiction.  Not only did Aileen cover the behaviour around addiction, but the science behind it, including new and up to date scientific discoveries about brain function, along with the physical and emotional effects of porn addiction for both the client and their partners.  Aileen has a lovely relaxed manner and delivers her training with patience, attending to everyone’s queries.  I also benefitted from a clearly written and informative booklet to take away, which I have already referred to several times.  This was one of the best workshops I have attended.”   Donna Davies, 8th May 2018
