Robert Hudson is the clinical director and founder of The Hudson Centre. He started The Hudson Centre in 2008 because he recognised that people in crisis need a safe, caring yet professional environment. His vision was to create a place where people struggling with sex addiction can talk candidly and honestly, get the information they need and learn the tools that will help them, take back control of their lives and go on to live healthy lives.
