Addictive behaviours take shape in many aspects of our lives. Often we associate addictions with drugs and alcohol, however, many other activities can be viewed as addictive in nature. These activities include addictions to computer games, golfing and sports, hunting, gambling, sex, yard-work, exercising, etc. Addictive behaviours affect our lives and the lives of our friends, spouse, partner, children and our work peers.
Our counselling sessions will assist you with analyzing the behaviours of concern, identifying the reasons for these behaviours, then creating and implementing techniques and stratgies that will decrease the addictive behaviours and replace them with appropriate activities

Registered Clinical Counselor ( Registered Social Worker)
Location: #310-546 St.Paul Street, Kamloops
I accept all clients as individuals and as people first. I find that acceptance and genuineness go along way when assisting clients with an addiction. Motivational interviewing along with the stages of change help to assist with client readiness and motivation for treatment and recovery. Both the individual process along with group therapy are effective ways to help assist with consciousness raising and ongoing recovery care.
