Neither of us found any conflict whatsoever in seeing the same therapist, and in actuality found it very beneficial. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Not sure if you are looking for a book for the sex addict or the partner.

As for me, the partner, our counsellor told me NOT to read this book early in my recovery. Instead, I was directed to Mending a Shattered Heart by Stefanie Carnes which was an excellent first choice for the partner.
