Registered Social Worker

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

I have worked in the addictions field for the past 15+ years. My understanding of addiction is that it stems from multiple traumas whether beginning in childhood or adulthood. My approach to counselling is mind/body focused and aims to assist clients to heal wounds caused by trauma at the body level where trauma is stored. If we experienced early childhood trauma, often the body is the only access point to heal trauma as we experienced trauma before we had the ability to process things verbally. I also believe that in order to heal trauma, we need to heal in relationship as the majority of our traumas occurred in relationships which counselling provides between therapist and client.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

The causes of addiction, just like any thing else we struggle with are complicated. At the beginning of our time together I will explain what happens to our brains when we are struggling with and addiction. This will help you to understand your brain and reduce some of the stigma you may have about addiction. Our brains are always able to change and we are always making choices even if it does not feel like it. We will explore the unhealthy beliefs you have about yourself, others, emotions and the world to try to address the root causes of your addiction. Meanwhile we will also focus on developing new positive ways of coping and emotional regulation strategies to use when you are distressed.

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 Counsellor

Kaily Turner, MCP, CCC

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In T1S 1A3 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

If you are struggling from an addiction, you need to know that you are not alone. Stop believing the voice in your head that you are the only one and reach out for help. When we think we can get control over our addictions on our own, we are only lying to ourselves. You need to have a support network around you to help you understand the deeper reasons behind your addiction. I will also teach you how to connect and express emotions in healthy ways instead of masking them with a substance or addictive process (shopping, gambling, sex etc), and develop healthy coping skills that through consistent practice, will help steer you away from relapse.

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)

Marcey Heschel, B.A., M.A.

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In T3H 3B8 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

It is my belief that addition is a disease of the mind and the most major symptom is craving. Although withdrawal and tolerance are both indicative of addiction, even worrisome drinking or substance use can be classified as addiction. Addiction is a progressive illness and can destroy people's lives quickly. A client will be at a certain level of awareness of their addiction. Through motivational interviewing, I can help the client move towards a desire for change and into actual change. I am a firm believer in the 12 step spiritual programs and believe that it is pertinent for a client to find a sense of spirituality in order to recover and thrive.

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!
