I was really fortunate to have a member of the limerence.net community willing to talk about her own experience and journey with limerence. Limerence is still little known amongst the therapeutic community and often dismissed a sa crush or obsession. Those that have lived with it will know its much more than that.

Anything that promotes the awareness of limerence is a good thing and its through people like sharing , willing to tell their story, that we can raise awareness. Sharon’s blog of her journey can be found here: www.soulworkjourney.org

If you want to tell your story, drop me an email at david@limerence.net

In 1999 he left medicine to set up docleaf, a leading Crisis Management and Trauma Psychology Consultancy. He has experience as a hypnotherapist and holds a postgraduate diploma in psychotherapy and counselling from the Centre of Counselling and Psychotherapy Education in London and is currently studying for an advance diploma in executive coaching.

David spends part of his time as an executive coach and running docleaf leadership which works with CEO’s and other C suite leaders in helping them develop and grow.

David has written extensively about limerence, sex and love addiction as well as trauma and PTSD. His interest in romantic relationships led him to set up www.limerence.net, a support forum to help those impacted by this debilitating condition.

David is passionate about men’s work and his mission in life is to help people become more conscious by teaching and helping others and continuing his own self-development. He is actively involved in volunteering with the ManKind Project charity which helps men live their lives with more integrity, honesty and taking more personal responsibility.
