Have you looked into behavior modification therapy? I have a family member dealing with a slightly different problem - but a paraphilia involving impluse control just the same...his treatment involves times of meditation where he focuses on his favored "activity" and then shocks himself with a low dosage of electricity (his therapist suggested a novelty "shock pen" available at almost any joke/novelty store). He practices this for about 15 to 20 minutes at a sitting. It is supposed to retrain the synapses of the brain to help him avoid the thought patterns that lead him down a road he doesn't want to go...
if you're interested, talk to your therapist about it.
