Joanna Benfield Sex Addiction Therapist Harley Street, Central London, and Online

Sex addiction therapy is available at the following times:

Wednesday to Friday, from 2pm to 6pm
Saturdays from 10am to 4pm

Please note that, at present, all work is taking place online. Research shows that online work is as effective as face-to-face therapy. I find that clients are reporting high levels of satisfaction with this approach, even if - initially - it may not have been their preferred mode of working.

Please note that I cannot discuss the details of your case with you on the telephone prior to us beginning work together. All prospective clients begin with a 50-minute consultation session, for which the normal session fee is payable (please see below). During this consultation, I help you to pinpoint and explore the issues that you want the therapy to focus upon. The consultation session allows us both to decide whether we wish to continue working together. To arrange an initial consultation, please click here or call me on: 0208 133 438

Most people find that they need to engage in sex addiction therapy for at least six months, in order to ensure that the changes in behaviours are properly embedded. You will be expected to make time for a regular weekly therapy session during this period. Some people find it helpful to remain in weekly therapy for much longer, while others will then reduce the contact to bi-weekly or once a month. I still work with many clients who first came into recovery five to ten years ago, who find it helpful to have an accountability partner who they check in with from time to time.

Please note that I do not work with clients engaging in illegal sexual behaviours. If you need help in stopping such behaviours, please refer to the STOPSO website, which will help you find a suitably qualified practitioner to assist you. I am unable to provide psychological assessments, risk assessments, letters, references or court reports, as these documents require a different professional background and specialist training in this area.


An initial 50-minute consultation (face-to-face or online) costs £150. Ongoing therapy also costs £150 per 50-minute session.

Payments can be made in cash, cheque or credit/debit card at each session or by bank transfer or Paypal in advance. Please note that the full session fee always applies for sessions cancelled with less than 48 hours' notice, regardless of the reason for cancellation.

Please do not use this payment method unless your consultation has been confirmed, as PayPal will deduct a fee that cannot be reimbursed. Thanks for your understanding.
