Further to the phenomenal popularity of The Kick Start Recovery Programme we are now proud to announce an even better, more comprehensive and greatly improved service.

The Pivotal Recovery Programme.

How it works

60 daily podcasts guide you through the 6 steps of recovery. And the interactive digital workbook provides the space to reflect on your journey and personalise the content to your individual situation.

Each podcast lasts 10-20 minutes and we recommend spending a further 30 minutes a day completing the tailored exercises in your workbook.

Based on over a decade’s research and therapeutic experience with thousands of men and women. Pivotal Recovery is not a sobriety course, but a recovery course. This will change your life, not just your habits. A serious, sex-positive, inclusive solution for problematic sexual behaviours.

About us

Not everyone is able to access the specialist expertise they need to beat sex and porn addiction. Location, cost and time commitments mean many aren’t able to benefit from vital psycho-educational interventions.

Renowned sex and relationship psychotherapist and author, Dr Paula Hall had a vision of making her core recovery treatments available to a wider audience for years…

…as a result, Pivotal Recovery CIC was founded as a not-for-profit community interest company dedicated to providing research-based, academically robust and tested low-cost recovery services for people struggling with pornography addiction, sex addiction and compulsive sexual behaviours.
