Addiction can affect every area of your life, from your physical health, mental health, emotional health, social life to your core values. I view addiction problems not through a lens of a lack of willpower, but through a lens of brain dysfunction and see that through brain training with Neurofeedback (NFB), processing with EMDR or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) there is a great potential for improvement.

Real Solutions for Real Challenges Common Sense techniques. Short-Term & Cost Effective Most often addictions are a symptom of pain. hurt , and loss of some form. The addiction serves to reduce this pain and suffering. However, the affect is has on the individual is to make them feel out of control, guilty, lazy, and generally worse about themselves whin in turn drives them to seek more relief. This is often the downward spiral of the addiction cycle. Martin helps his clients reframe thier negative statements about themselves and then exposes the core beliefs that keep triggering their destructive and untrue beliefs about their whole character.

Whether you are struggling with an addiction such as alcohol or drug abuse, video gaming addiction, shopping addiction, gambling, ecc, most likely life is an emotional roller coaster for you AND the person who loves you. Addiction recovery is not about willpower but about identifying the underlying causes of your addiction OR your enabling behaviour and finding appropriate coping mechanisms to deal with stress and emotional overwhelm in healthy ways. As a certified Addiction Counsellor I specialize in working with LOVED ONES of addicts as well as the individual struggling with addiction using a blend of somatic and cognitive psychotherapy which has proven to be extremely effective.

Addiction has been defined as any behavior that is associated with craving and temporary relief, and with long-term negative consequences, that a person is not able to give up. This does not have to be related to any substances, but that is often how most of us think of it. it’s any behavior that provides temporary relief of uncomfortable feelings. When you come in for therapy, we can look at other ways of accomplishing the same relief without requiring a substance. Often, being fully understood in a non judgmental way is the first step to feeling connected to another human being. Connection is the opposite of addiction since addiction is a form of disconnection: from others and ourselves

I combine notions from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with Adlerian and Gestalt concepts. I draw on the 12 Steps terms and ideas that simplify the complex aspects of addiction. I match my approach to the client. I have detoxification equipment and techniques. At times I may use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help people let go of pain from their past, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to help them cope with the present, clinical hypnosis to help them train their minds for a healthy, confident and effective future, and Chi Kung meditations to help them strengthen, balance and detoxify their minds, bodies and spirits on an ongoing basis.
