Addiction Counsellor

Haley Gershony, M.Ed., RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

214-3001 Tutt Street, KELOWNA, British Columbia

I will help you learn alternatives to substance use. By identifying the difficult emotions that substances help you cope with we can create a new plan that will allow you to manage these uncomfortable experiences while still decreasing your substance use. This way, we target the underlying reasons you drink/do drugs/eat and address the core issues that motivate your unhealthy behaviours.

Addiction Counsellor

Ed Mitchell, RPC, MPCC, RTC, MTC, TFT (Dx)

Master Practioner Clinical Counselling, Psychotherapist

2140 Wilkinson Street, Kelowna, British Columbia

People who struggle with addictions usually have underlying issues that the addiction numbs. Being addicted to a substance or a behaviour is a coping tool that only complicates their lives. We offer help with relapse prevention and focus on helping clients develop new ways of coping, as well as encouraging them in re-shaping their lives. We focus on the client as a whole, not just their addiction.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact or call 877-606-6161.

I have been a substance abuse counsellor for 22 yrs.This included 12 years of facilitating substance abuse groups.I will provide a safe, comfortable place for you to explore the underlying issues around your substance abuse.

Counselling will include making connections to your past, healthy self-care, exploring thoughts that impact feelings, self esteem and anger.

Addiction Counsellor

Jenelle Kildaw, MSW, RSW, RYT, RMT

Registered Social Worker, Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200), Registered Reiki Master (IARP)

#214-3001 Tutt Street, Kelowna , British Columbia

After my work with Mental Health and Addictions, I feel strongly that most humans do struggle with some form of addiction (shoe shopping, retail therapy, food, etc), however depending on the severity, the negative impact and the amount of the occurrence treatment requiring therapy may be necessary. Addiction issues may also be one of the most difficult struggles as the reoccurrence rate without successful healthy substitutes is incredibly high. With a whole new inventory of positive skills in replacement for the negative addictions, you have a very high chance of success. I would be honoured to aid you find and build this effective inventory of positive skills!

Addiction Counsellor

Dennis Leclair, B.A., B.Ed., M.Sc.

Personal Development and Relationship Counsellor

347 Leon Avenue, Suite 210 , Kelowna, British Columbia

Addictive behaviours take shape in many aspects of our lives. Often we associate addictions with drugs and alcohol, however, many other activities can be viewed as addictive in nature. These activities include addictions to computer games, golfing and sports, hunting, gambling, sex, yard-work, exercising, etc. Addictive behaviours affect our lives and the lives of our friends, spouse, partner, children and our work peers. Our counselling sessions will assist you with analyzing the behaviours of concern, identifying the reasons for these behaviours, then creating and implementing techniques and stratgies that will decrease the addictive behaviours and replace them with appropriate activities

Addiction Counsellor

Kathryn Dodds, RPC in Psychotherapy

Registered Professional Counsellor and Life Coach

Kelowna , British Columbia

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 am presently employed as a clinical counsellor in Bridgeway Addiction Services. I take a biopyschosocialspiritual approach. I work on both the symptoms and the root of the problem of addiction. The root usually includes work regarding past abuse and trauma, low self worth, negative core self beliefs, family of origin, etc. With the addition use of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) I can help people with both the causes of addiction and impulse/urge control.

Addiction Counsellor

Dave Scully, MSW, RCSW

Registered Clinical Social Worker

#206 1634 Harvey Ave, Kelowna, British Columbia

I believe it can be of great benefit to work with a therapist as part of a recovery from addiction issues. I previously help a certification in Oregon as a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counsellor, level II. I work to meet the client wherever they are in the recovery process. I can employ Harm Reduction strategies to try to help people minimize negative impacts of their addictions. While this can be enough for many people, I also know that for many others, abstinence may be the only effective choice to eliminate the negative pull of the addiction. I am familiar with 12-Step model, and can offer good support to those looking to explore the emotional underpinnings of their behaviours.
