Addiction Counsellor

Dan Bue, BA, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Within driving distance of Fort Langley

In his work with Level 3 foster children and his subsequent work with a prison population, Dan encountered and worked with persons struggling with much drug and alcohol addiction. In working with this population, Dan quickly became an advocate of dual diagnosis - as he found that, invariably, the client was struggling with another (or other) serious psychological problems, which led to the substance abuse as a way of dealing with the pain. To successfully treat the addictive behaviour requires also treating the concurrent issues.

I work with most areas of addiction although in cases of serious drug or alcohol addiction I will usually recommend or refer to a specialist or treatment centre to help you deal with that. There are many kinds of addiction from internet addiction to shopping addiction, sexual addiction and hoarding to name a few. Dealing with these issues is a multi faceted. Our upbringing and childhood play a role as does mental health issues and chronic stress and anxiety. Understanding what is behind the need to self medicate and learning to substitute healthier options can be very beneficial in dealing with and overcoming addiction.

With over two decades experience in addiction counselling, I can confirm that addiction has most often been a symptom of a greater underlying issue or problem. I work from a biopsychosocialspiritual philosophy, meaning I will take into consideration all of the various life factors that influence your addiction. While it may be necessary to explore family of origin issues or past traumatic events, I believe your point of power is in the present and will use treatment modalities that are the right fit for you to assist you to develop the skills to honor your past, while living in the present and transform the blocks that prevent you from living the life you deserve. Change is possible!

Has an addiction taken over your life? Do you use a substance or a behaviour to numb your pain or emotions? Do you want out but don't know how to get there or what to do next? Together, we can work at helping you to gain control back in your life and find other ways to cope with your emotions. I believe it's important for us to work on what started the addiction in the first place through exploring underlying issues, trauma, stressors and then work on resolving these for long-term freedom from addiction.

Addiction Counselor

Kathryn Dodds, RPC in Psychotherapy

Registered Professional Counsellor and Life Coach

Available for Online Therapy

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."

I have been trained in EMDR which has been shown through several studies to be very effective in treating addiction issues. EMDR is an approach to counselling that uses bilateral stimulation to process and desensitize past events that are "locked" in the nervous system in their raw sensory components. EMDR can be used to treat past trauma, which is often the root of addiction issues, or treat the addiction itself if no past trauma is identified. EMDR, as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that involves giving the client tools and resources to identify triggers, make different choices, regulate emotions, and find new ways of coping, can be very effective in treating addiction.

Gently and respectfully, we work with the wisdom of the body to find your life back. We work to develop a strong observer self, as it allows you to notice yourself as separate from your feelings and experience and is critical for emotional safety and growth. Sometimes, just learning how to bring awareness and presence into your body can be a profound and helpful experience. If you are using a 12 step program, you may learn a process called 'focusing', to enrich and enhance progress.

Addictions begin as a way to hide from life. Addictive behaviours initially may help individuals cope with unpleasant and hurtful aspects of life, but they eventually limit that person's full and joyous experiences. Counselling helps individuals to embrace their life. Clients learn to slowly and safely take control of and full responsibility for themselves, including their past mistakes, their current struggles and their future hopes and dreams. They learn to replace their unhealthy addictions with healthy coping strategies which promote growth, self-esteem, and heart-felt connections.

At the heart of any addiction is some form of pain and/or unresolved trauma. The addiction can be to drugs (both illicit and prescription), alcohol, shopping, gambling, sex and others. To treat addiction, we need to explore the pain/unresolved trauma i.e. "going beneath the waters of the iceberg". This can be daunting at first, but once uncovered there is relief and understanding. For a wonderful explanation, go to YOUTUBE for a 3 minute explanation by leading addiction expert, Dr. Gabor Mate.

Addiction Counsellor

Ted Leavitt, M.Sc., RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor

Within driving distance of Fort Langley

I have been working in the addiction field for many years now and recognize that there is a common theme underlying addictive behavior, whether it be substances or activities. The alcoholic and the workaholic both face the prospect of dying prematurely and alone, but society views one with scorn and one with admiration. Many people are reluctant to seek help for addictive behavior because they know someone else "has it worse". Don't let other people convince you that your problem isn't a big deal. If it matters to you, then it's worth talking about. I come from a place of compassion, non-judgment, and empathy, three ingredients missing in the lives of many people who struggle with addiction.

Registered Clinical Counselor

I believe in the counselling process and experience, the one that is non-judgemental & non-shaming, which means having an authentic relationship with someone who encourages and empowers you so that change can occur. In addition to empowerment, my therapy strives to simplify client's problems to its most simplest forms by diving into the details of the problem from every perspective. Understanding the reasons behind the issues and the background of the problems leads to a type of awareness that drives action which in turn produces positive change in the client's life. It is my privilege and passion to help instill hope and positive change in clients’ lives, leading them to live happily.
