A range of Recovery Workshops are also available including Understanding Partner’s Needs & Rebuilding Trust and Mindfulness for Recovery.
- Hall Recovery Course
The Hall Recovery Course is not group therapy where you will be expected to share personal feelings that are uncomfortable for you. It is a pragmatic, down to earth psycho-educational course that has been developed specifically for the treatment of sex addiction and sexually compulsive behaviours. The course is unique in providing practical skills for recovery as well as creating an environment where deeper psychological and emotional needs can begin to be explored. Our groups are strictly limited to a maximum of 8 participants and treatment efficacy is evaluated with recognised outcome measure tools.
The Hall Recovery Course is available in the following formats:
- 8 Week Online Recovery Course for Porn Addiction (specialist service also available for young adults)
- 12 Week Recovery Course – (1 evening per week plus one weekend)
- 6 Day Intensive Recovery Course
- Aftercare Group
Our support programmes for partners provide the space to understand the overwhelming roller coaster of emotions that are so common when compulsive sexual behaviours are either discovered or disclosed. Help is provided to develop positive coping strategies to enable partners to take control of their lives again – whatever the future may hold.
Our partner programs are available as:
- 8 Week Partner Support Group
- 4 Day Intensive Partner Support Group
- Aftercare Group
You’ll find more information about our courses and other services, as well as testimonials from those who have previously attended on our website.

In combination with individual therapy, Innisfree Therapy offers a range of Therapy Groups . Group Therapy is a powerful and effective catalyst for change. Our groups offer a safe yet dynamic space for people to share their experiences, reduce their sense of isolation and shame, and learn from each other. Our model is based on Irving Yalom’s Interpersonal Group Therapy, whereby we see a single interpersonal transaction as representative of a larger pattern of behaviour. By keeping the focus in the here-and-now – and on the process in the group rather than what is happening ‘world out there’ – group members learn about themselves, how they come across, and how they interact and relate. Most importantly, however, people gain support without fear of judgement, and build safe, open, intimate and honest relationships with other people who have similar problems. Group work can be intense – but there is no pressure on you to reveal more about yourself, your experiences or your behaviour until you are ready to do so.
We run groups for men, groups for women, and groups for partners.
The Marylebone Centre offer a range of support groups:
Men’s Group: Supporting men with sexually compulsive behaviour. (Groups forming now.)
Group therapy is a powerful, dynamic part of addressing sexual addiction. Our clients report this as being an invaluable component in recovery. To provide continuing support through your recovery, we offer up to three sequential twelve week sessions. Together, the group learns about the neuroscience and the cycle of addiction. We explore the origins of each individual’s sexual addiction and support each other to make a sex plan to avoid relapse and find a healthier, satisfying sex life.
Women’s Group: Supporting women whose partners have sexually compulsive behaviour.
Participating in a group committed to recovery is an almost essential component for successful recovery. This seems to be as true for partners of sex addicts as for the addict. There are unique experiences and particular problems facing partners of sex addicts. The goals of this twelve-week group are to help women in such relationships explore sex addiction and to focus on one’s own issues and recovery in a safe, supportive environment.
Recovery Group: Supporting men with problematic sexual behaviours.
This group is based on psychodynamic principles, which explore the unconscious reasons for problematic behaviour and seeks to remove blocks to self development.
This group is appropriate for:
- Men who may have completed treatment programmes or are in self-governing aftercare programmes.
- Those in need of immediate help who are unable to join in regular treatment
- Long standing patients in individual treatment
Self Development Group: Support for individuals exploring relationship problems, anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and obsessive compulsive patterns of behaviour.
Working with others, we extend our self-knowledge and improve our capacity to make better life decisions. In this group, individuals come together and work on issues of their choice. It is not necessarily about recovery from sexual addiction, although for some it may be.
