NEW Online Recovery and Support Services
Due to the current pandemic, the Laurel Centre have been unable to offer the usual face to face services to help people recover from sex and porn addiction or to support partners who are impacted by their partners betrayal. While we still find ourselves living in lock-down, with no indication of when it will end, we’ve developed a range of services that you can access from home. In addition to individual and couple therapy, we are also offering the following services via Zoom. Please email us for information by following the Enquire link below, or ask your therapist for more information.
This 3 hour zoom workshop delivered by Paula Hall has been designed to provide a solid understanding of what sex addiction and porn addiction is from a biological, psychological and social perspective. and how you can overcome it.
