Using substances or activities in an obsessive and/or compulsive manner is a way of trying to escape ourselves. We do these things for good reason, but we don't always know why. This is where I come in. I will help you to find alternative ways of calming and nurturing yourself. And then I will help you to face the demons you are running from. With my support, you will learn to be a good parent to yourself. As you repair your relationship with yourself, your relationships with others will grow. You will no longer feel banished to a lonely world of one. And you will once again feel connected to yourself and the wider community around you.

Approaches to addressing addictions really vary from one treatment setting to another. My approach focuses on helping people manage their addictions. Not everyone chooses abstinence, and not everyone needs to. In fact, for many problem drinkers learning to become a controlled drinker can offer a more sustainable way of living. I tend to work with people to help them manage their addictions in a way that is sustainable, and in a way that works for their personal situation.

I have previously worked in the feild of substance abuse. I use a harm reduction philosophy and provide an empathic environment for you to process your pain/emotions. I also help people co-create a plan to reduce their use or change their use for the better that is best for them. Many people with substance abuse difficulties also have mental health issues which I can also help with. I can also assit with co-creating a relapse prevention plan.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact email@example.com or call 877-606-6161.

Bernie believes that the treatment of addictions goes beyond simply treating the dependence on a substance or a behaviour. It is essential to treat the underlying factors that led to the addiction. The treatment of the underlying issues is the key to long term recovery. Bernie works with people who are experiencing: substance abuse, porn addiction, gambling, sex addiction and other process addictions. Please note that in substance abuse cases it is important to seek medical assistance if detox is needed and or to help manage withdrawal symptoms.

My approach is supportive, empathetic and, above all, pragmatic. While I believe that understanding the past is essential, change occurs in the present. I will challenge you to be an active partner in therapy and to work toward ongoing insight, growth, and positive change both in and outside of sessions. With a background in addictions, trauma, abuse, grief and mental health, I believe that everyone deserves the right to be heard and that change is always possible. Over the past 15 years I have worked with individuals and families of varying backgrounds, ages and cultures. I offer both harm reduction and abstinence based approaches to addiction therapy.

Addictions seriously impact our lives and make it difficult to through our days. By understanding the underlying reasons behind developing the addiction in the first place, we can identify and deal with these concerns and reduce/eliminate the need for the addiction itself. By engaging in "self-acceptance" surrounding our behaviours during this healing process, we are more likely to have a positive self-concept throughout this journey. We want to stop "needing" the substance we are addicted to instead of judging the fact that we are addicted.

I have worked with every kind of addiction in my 15 years of practice, including gambling and internet addictions, porn and sex addictions, substance addictions (cigarettes, food, alcohol, drugs) and shopping addictions. I even worked with a fruit addiction which was eliminated in one session. The desire for the addiction can be dealt with quickly, often in one session, using EFT. The underlying cause of the addiction can take longer to heal, using both EFT and CBT. By longer, I mean a matter of weeks.
