Ep 018: Melissa Killeen - Sex and Love Addiction, Is There a Difference and Can Too Much Be a Bad Thing?
The highs of love and sex hinge on physical or psychological arousal, and relationships can be marked by desperation.
For people hopelessly in love, they go through life feeling desperate longing and constant fear. That is the fear of rejection, pain, unfamiliar experiences, and having little faith in their ability or right to inspire love. They wait and wish for love, but suffer a destructive twist on a normal life-enhancing activity.
For those who crave lots of sex, the need for arousal often replaces the need for intimacy; and the cravings can mask other issues such as depression, anxiety, and stress.
On today's episode I welcome back to the show Melissa Killeen, an addiction recovery coach with more than 25 years experience in personal recovery as well as 35 years as a small business owner and leader, about this powerful duo of addiction which carries with it an amazing stigma.
Melissa is the author of the first book on addiction recovery coaching, Recovery Coaching – A Guide to Coaching People in Recovery from Addiction.
She has received her Master’s Degree in Executive Coaching and a Master’s of Philosophy in Organizational Dynamics from the University of Pennsylvania.
Melissa is the past president of Recovery Coaches International, and in 2015, she received the Vernon Johnson Award from Faces and Voices of Recovery for her recovery coaching work.
