An addiction is a loss of control over alcohol, substance use, eating, sexuality, or gambling. It is a behaviour that is motivated by emotions that range from cravings to compulsions. The addictive behavior continues despite its negative consequences. Counselling includes a focus on the root emotioanal causes that led to addiction and some tools to deal with addictive behaviour so that you can get your life back in balance.

The term addiction describes a pattern of uncontrollable and compulsive behaviour regardless of the negative consequences. Substance abuse or chemical dependence describes a maladaptive behaviour that can lead to distress, impairment or negative impact on ones wellbeing. Pornographic addiction can be described as compulsively watching pornographic materials with the sole intention to fulfil sexual gratification. I'm professionally trained to assist you to resolve your addictive behaviour.

Addiction is a gradual process, which begins by sampling wine at the dinner table, then graduating to your own glass and further to buying your own bottle. There is no doubt to some the taste of alcohol is welcoming, and soothing to the system, whereby at certain stages in life alcohol is used as an avoidance in dealing with life issues. Using a task-centered approach helps individuals face the reality and causes of their addiction.

Addictive behaviours may feel like comfort to the vacuum left by aloneness or detachment. The feeling of aloneness can start early. Children require a lot of emotional interaction to develop trust that their needs for support and caring will be met. If they don’t experience positive attachments, they may turn their needs for love and caring into physical cravings, which are easier to fill, and develop relationships with their addictions because they're more in control of them than those they look to for love and attention. I create a therapeutic environment in which individuals can deepen their understanding of their feelings and learn to trust their inner resources to connect with others.
