Too much of Porn - a treatment plan for porn-addiction

Porn addiction is considered a behavioral addiction that is characterized by an ever-growing compulsion to view pornographic content or material (Leah Miller). Our treatment plan for porn addiction is mainly based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy ("CBT") approach, specifically looks at things that trigger emotional discomfort and the desire to escape through compulsive porn use and sexual fantasy. In general, CBT works on the assumption that it is thoughts that govern behaviour. Therefore, thinking in a different way will lead to changes in behaviour. Depending on the complexity and client's commitment toward the treatment plan, we expect to see improvement and recovery from porn addiction after 5 to 10 sessions.


Through the counselling sessions, we help client to identify and minimize triggers, to refute the distorted thoughts that give permission, and to interrupt the automated behavioral sequence that leads to viewing pornography.


We believe that structured assignments and careful self-observation by the client will guide client on the path to recovery.
