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 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.

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

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!
