Addictions come in many forms but are often a secondary issue to an underlying pain. This could be related to a childhood trauma or stem from feeling a lack of love or connection to others. It is important to explore what led us to that addiction and truly think about how we can shift our awareness of this to live an optimal life for ourselves and those around us. Figuring out our addiction is the first stop to achieving your goals and living a more fulfilled and happier life.

Often, an individual's relationship with substance use such as drugs alcohol or will change over time. For example, the person might’ve initially used it only once a while in a month as to get away from his/ her stress and have some pleasurable time, but very soon it become an everyday necessity for the user. Did your relationship with your substance use change from the time that you started to now? Do you still use for the same reasons, or have those reasons changed? Have you done the bad things under the influence of substances that you wouldn’t have done if you haven't consumed? Feel free to contact to learn how counseling can help you.

There are many kinds of addictions that a client may seek counselling for. Addictions hurt everyone and the person affected may be in total denial. Addictions occur in 2 forms, behavioral and physical. When addicted clients seek treatment they will experience increased self-esteem as they find success in reducing or eliminating addictive behaviors.

Simply put, an addiction is any repetitive, automatic, unconscious pattern of behaviors that serves the self at the expense of another’s well-being. As such, addictive behaviors tend to isolate the addicted individual and strengthen the ego, the part of us that thinks we don’t need anybody else to survive. Due to the fact we generally don’t want to see we are interdependent on one another for survival, we fail to embody what we can be and share the best of us with others. The only way to escape the work we are here to do (which benefits all) and forfeit the painful process of giving birth to ourselves as an independent being is to give up on our sobriety.

I have been clean and sober nearly 26 years. I am familiar with 12-step approaches to treating addictions and compulsions, and sympathetic to those who find them uesful. There are, however, many who need help but cannot find it in 12 step programs. I am able to meet many of these where they are, and help them in ways they are able to use. Addiction and compulsions, like all conditions that respond to psychotherapy, are phenomena that are overcome through personal growth.

Addictions are very challenging and overcoming them require the support of counsellors, friends and family. I offer a supportive and safe place to discuss your struggle with addiction. Often addictions are a result of not having learned to deal with difficult experiences, and emotions. It is usually helpful to talk about difficult feelings and learn to deal with them in new and more constructive ways.

Facing the causes and consequences of alcoholism/addiction isn’t easy; in fact, therapy will test your motivation to stay sober. I consider alcoholism/addiction therapy to be a collaborative process that focuses on encouraging the client’s sense of internal motivation; teaching the client how to identify destructive behaviors and replace them with positive, self-affirming actions; educating clients on relapse prevention strategies; and strengthening relationships through partners or family counseling.

Equine Assisted Counselling can help clients focus on their health through their relationships with the horses and encourages them to seek out excitement in appropriate ways-- from working with horses. When treating addictions success is often strongly related to the presence of a strong attachment to a safe adult, the ability of that individual to take charge of their circumstances, and the belief of the addicted person that the treatment will be effective. These areas can all be addressed through counselling sessions with the horses.
