Some relationship therapists work with the partner’s pain by treating it as an infidelity, for example, but it’s so much more than that – and sometimes it isn’t even that at all, with some people not actually having sex elsewhere, but using porn instead.” No wonder Hall’s therapeutic practice, which recognises the uniqueness of the partner’s pain, has gone from strength to strength.Also providing a haven of hope is the small, but growing, number of support groups.“So when he sat me down one day to tell me he was a sex addict, I actually laughed – although I soon stopped when he disclosed night upon night of watching pornography for hours on end and numerous short-lived affairs.My life fell apart.” Sex addiction hurts partners in a way that no other addiction can, says Paula Hall, who has written a book on the subject.

“He’d always go to bed later than me and often made excuses when I brought it up,” explains the 41-year-old.“Ideally, partners get their own therapy,” says Hall.“The problem is that all the assumptions made by well-meaning friends about sex addiction are also shared by many therapists who are untrained in this area.Traditionally, most partners of sex addicts have been treated as co-dependents, says Hall.

“The presumption is that the partner knew at some level what was going on and was ‘enabling’ it, which is frankly an insult.is overdue, Hall believes, with thousands of partners across the UK struggling with something that evokes all the most destructive ingredients of personal pain – betrayal, infidelity, deceit and shame.
