The Diploma in Working with Compulsive Sexual Behaviour Disorder and Sex Addiction has been developed to provide counsellors, psychotherapists, sex therapists and addiction specialists with the tools to assess and treat CSBD and sex & porn addiction from a BioPsychoSocial perspective. We teach a culturally sensitive, sex positive, health-based approach to overcoming compulsive sexual behaviours. Delegates will also gain the necessary skills to work with partners and support couples and families in recovery.
Our course is divided into three 4 day modules. Each module provides distinct skills for working with different levels of addiction and client groups. Attendance at all three modules is required to receive the Diploma.

Once the face-to-face component of the September 2023 diploma has been confirmed, students will be required to make arrangements for their own travel and accommodation. We ask students to ensure that they are able to get refunded for any travel and accommodation costs if for any reason we are not able to run the course on a face-to-face basis because of COVID restrictions or because of insufficient student numbers.
The fee for each course is £2,550 with a 5% discount for students who are funded by non-profit organisations. Places are offered, subject to satisfactory references, following receipt of an application form, a recent photograph and a £500 non-refundable deposit. If the application form and deposit of £500 are received on or before 24 July 2023 for the September 2023 start or 18 December 2023 for the February 2024 start, then there is an earlybird fee of £2,250. The balance of the fee is payable at the start of the programme though we can, by arrangement, accept payment of the balance in ten equal monthly instalments from the start date of the course.
