Are you struggling with the shame of trying to fill an internal void - or manage your emotions - through external sources, like substances, eating, overworking, affairs or relationships? By working with your body and emotions, you can develop the internal self-regulation skills to manage discomfort and impulses in a different way. Addictions is more than a question of lack of willpower - understanding the neurobiology behind addictions and the trauma that can accompany them can normalize what you are going through. I combine Somatic Experiencing, attachment work, grounding, mindfulness, self-compassion, containment and other strategies to support you to reconnect with yourself and others.

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 we do something repeatedly, that we would rather not do, then we have an addiction. The problem with addictions is that people get hurt. The addicted person may not recognize the seriousness of their situation, but eventually both the addict and their loved ones suffer tremendously in a state of helplessness. Many families have been destroyed from addictive behaviour such as substance addiction (drugs/alcohol), gambling, sexual addictions, gaming/internet addictions. A counsellor can help. Workshops, groups, individual or family counselling can assist in breaking the devastating cycle of addiction. Coping skills and emotional awareness to negotiate compelling urges and compulsive in

Addiction cannot be completely understood by education alone. So many people are instructed to just stop doing it or just break the habit. Neural pathways once formed provide us with the equivalent to wheel ruts that in our thinking that we default to time and time again. We can with behaviour modification haul ourselves out of the wheel rut, but that wheel rut remains there waiting for us to fall back into when we are vulnerable in moments where we choose to medicate ourselves with our own addiction. Understanding how to rid ourselves of the wheel rut is part of the dual diagnosis addressing addictions - all of them.
