I offer assistance to people who have problems with addiction. Habitual self-harming behavior must be accompanied by a commitment to stop. This commitment can be assisted by a passionate re-decision of “passive” decisions of earlier life. This often stems from “childhood problems of attachment and security within the family system.” New ways of relating to oneself can be established. Ongoing commitment to refrain from addictive behavior, and select behavioral choices that focus on commitment to one’s current priorities in life can be accomplished. Sufficient support -internal, therapeutic, and community - combined with constructive choice, can become your life’s habit forever!

If you are struggling with addiction then it is time to take action now. Any addiction can be harmful and it can take complete control of your life. Physical addictions are related to food, drugs, alcohol and mental addictions are related to gambling, video games etc.. In fact any mental or physical activity which creates dependence and it is beyond your control, can become an addiction. It means you are not In-dependent but you are Out-dependent. In my experience people can even be addicted to anyone or anything. Integrative psychodynamic therapy can give you permanent solutions although it can take some time. But who would not like to enjoy the idea of living an independent healthy life?

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.

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.
