The growing disorder of problem sexuality, addiction and abuse in New Zealand is complex and pervasive, and requires specific and effective treatment by therapists trained in this field. To meet this accelerating demand, we’re pleased to announce:

New Zealand’s First Community-Based Treatment Programme For The Disorder Of Sexual Addiction

There has never been a more urgent time in the history of human sexuality in New Zealand for community-based treatment programmes that confronts the disorder of sexual addiction. Such a therapeutic response is long overdue when considering the damaging effects to individuals and families of this silent phenomenon. Sexual addiction is on a continuum that includes: Problem Sexuality, Addiction and Abuse.

It is a problem that devastates many families. David brings a fresh thorough approach and is very professional. I warmly support this initiative and he is a person of great integrity. I am a registered psychologist and I was a founder member of the NZ Sexologist Society.

“I am happy to endorse the STEPS Programme and believe the project to be of immense value to the improvement of our society in dealing with an often unspoken and difficult issue. Having digested the STEPS Programme. I am of the opinion that it involves a legitimate project, is led by a person of the highest character and is a most worthy project of government and private sector funding. The need to tackle issues such as problem sexuality in our community is the responsibility of all of us, whether in the legal profession or otherwise. From personal experience, I can add that projects such as yours are of immense value to those of us needing help in addressing and recovering from personal problems. I wish you well with the advancement of this programme.”

The STEPS assessment profile is a sexual health assessment that has identified three levels of sexual addiction:

  • The first is passive addiction – losing control,
  • The second is compliant addiction – lost control, and
  • The third is clinical addiction – out of control.

Completing a STEPS Assessment is an excellent place for conducting a foundational sexual health assessment to define where you are on the continuum, where problematic sexuality has taken you and how to overcome its devastating influence.

The STEPS Assessment will be available towards the end of 2015. If you would like us to let you know when it’s ready, please leave us your details here.
