Are you tired waking up with a pounding headache, dragging yourself out of bed thinking, “why did I go that hard?” Does “a couple drinks to relax” end up being a runaway train leaving you hungover and ashamed?

Using a mix of humor, accountability, and cutting-edge techniques, I'll help you understand and master your drinking habits - so you can have the robust health, powerful career, and supported family you deserve.

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

If you or someone you know are addicted to prescription drugs, Dr. Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can come alongside you and help you to break the cycle of lapse and relapse. Often people with depression become dependent on taking benzodiazepines (a suppressant that depresses the mood), and they therefore struggle not only to get out of the depression but also to stop taking the tranquilizers. With an understanding of the working mechanisms of the drugs, and with the guidance of a psychopharmacologist, you can begin a new chapter in your life.

Addiction is often the surface problem, it's a way of staying away from a greater pain that is below the surface. Doing addiction counselling with me is a gentle and compassionate process of tending to the real issues below the addiction, so that there is no longer a need to engage in this harmful behaviour. When you pull out the roots of a weed, the weed will not grow back, and real change has been achieved!

Counselling Psychologist

In T3E 7V3 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

Addiction can be anything from annoying to devastating in terms of the effect on your life. Addictive behavior of any kind, substances, technologies, food, sex, porn has the potential to limit the quality of life of those affected. If you are reading this it is possible that you may be having an experience with an addiction of your own or someone you care about and are interested in wanting change. Addiction is very understandable from a brain science perspective. There is a part of our brain that has a habit making function. We very easily form habits that have an emotional payoff for us. Once a behavior has a payoff then this brain jumps into action to create a brain pathway that helps us repeat the behavior. In other words, it helps us to keep...(view profile to read more)

Clients with lifelong addictions have found freedom and hope again. "The first time I saw Kathryn I was a mess! ...I was depressed, confused, hurt, angry and desolate and almost to the point of ending it all. Life just didn't seem worth living... Kathryn was so understanding and kind and helped me to change my negative thoughts into positive ones ...She also taught me that no one can make me feel anything happy, sad, lonely, miserable - these are my own thoughts and they come from my own guilt or shame,people just trigger them... I now want to live and I understand how important it really is to live an honest clean life and to care for and love myself like I never knew how to before."

Addiction Counsellor

Nick Bohn, MA

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

While some people may be genetically predisposed to addiction, others may simply have "addictive personalities", and while some substances may be chemically more addictive than others, addiction, simply put, is a learned behavioural coping response to an underlying emotional issue. And while the addictive behaviour tends to be a very effective short-term coping strategy, the long-term consequences can quickly become unsustainable. My approach is geared toward helping you understand how your addiction is serving you in the short-term, find healthier and more sustainable coping strategies, and most importantly, to identify, and reprocess that underlying emotional issue at its core.
