My approach to addictions counselling is to explore what is 'feeding' the addiction- in other words, to explore and discover what is missing in your life that you have replaced with drinking, taking substances, or whatever your addiction may be. It is my hope that you will come to identify and understand your triggers and learn better ways of coping with your issues.

Addiction can be complicated and there can be many layers of struggle. My approach is to understand where a person has come from in order to understand what has brought them to counselling today. I am informed by the Response Based Approach, Narrative Therapy, and Systemic Family Therapy. It is important to work together in a way that protects the client's dignity and worth. Goals and treatment are negotiated with clients and are collaborative.

Addictions can appear in many forms including substance addictions, internet addiction, sex addiction, gambling addiction, shopping addiction, pornography, social media, excessive exercise, food, etc. Strong cravings with a loss of control can lead people to become addicted in spite of possible dire consequences.

Promoting physical, emotional and spiritual well being is often critical for the rehabilitation process.

The question becomes "Do I have control over it or does it have control over me?". Often substances are used as coping mechanism without realizing that it often creates even more anxiety and depression, leaving a person feeling more stress and low down the road.
