Addictions are stressful, frustrating, and anxiety provoking. They lead you to behave in ways that, even as you are doing it, you know are not ultimately going to benefit you. So, if you don't want to be doing it but still do it, what's going on? Well, addictions are a confused, and often harmful, way of coping with a stressful, frustrating, or painful situation. The only problem is, aside from temporarily numbing and soothing you, they don't really solve anything, and they often create problems of their own, making life more stressful and thus increasing your need for the coping strategy all over again. Our program will teach you to simply step free of the struggle completely.

Addiction develops when one does not feel that they can manage the challenges or difficulties that happen in one's life; whether it be trauma, abuse, difficulties in relationships, feeling alone and not understood. When negative life events happen intense emotions that are painful also happen and often that is when folks will find something to take their mind off of the pain and temporarily onto something else that can turn into an addiction causing more struggles and difficulties in life. I work to help individuals understand that the addiction can be overcome by understanding and working through the causes and difficulties one had to face in order to find relief from the addiction.

Whether you are struggling with an addiction such as alcohol or drug abuse, video gaming addiction, shopping addiction, gambling, ecc, most likely life is an emotional roller coaster for you AND the person who loves you. Addiction recovery is not about willpower but about identifying the underlying causes of your addiction OR your enabling behaviour and finding appropriate coping mechanisms to deal with stress and emotional overwhelm in healthy ways. As a certified Addiction Counsellor I specialize in working with LOVED ONES of addicts as well as the individual struggling with addiction using a blend of somatic and cognitive psychotherapy which has proven to be extremely effective.

I worked for many years for a retreat centre and I have seen and worked with many addicts. I think that it is essential that someone suffering from an addiction is wanting help and change for themselves. I help the person with an addiction look at what negative core beliefs created the addiction in the first place.There are many types of addictions and although some take the form of alcohol or drugs, the most insidious are the emotional addictions. Understanding the "pay off" for the addiction is an important component for wanting change. It can also be helpful to work with then family members of an addict to help them understand what they can do to help their family member.

Addictions Counselling / Treatment can clear any contributing factors that has caused or supports the addiction. When an individual is on the journey of recovery and finally free of the addiction, there is no transferring from one addiction to another addictive pattern. The central nervous system is able to let go of any contributing factors such as old traumas, loss, grief, pain, fear, anger, old conditioning and programming from an earlier time so there is no reason to numb with an addiction. The central nervous system is no longer in fight-flight-freeze-or collapse and the Deep Limbic System, Basal Ganglia, Prefrontal Cortex, Cingulate System, the Temporal Lobes are reset for balance.

We use certain behaviours or substances when we are fearful of facing emotional, physical or spiritual pain, or when we feel a lack of control in our lives. We may engage in addictive behaviours when we do not want to feel the fear of facing what is really happening in our lives. An addiction can distract us from difficult issues at hand, and change what we are feeling. Or, there may be some of us who believe deep down that we do not deserve happiness, and allow the addictive behaviour to take over instead of creating the space to face our feelings. EMDR therapy can facilitate greater self-awareness, more self-compassion, and create a path of concrete strategies to stop engaging in addiction

If we all arrived on earth with an owners manual, it would be far easier to discover the most adaptable ways to cope with the onslaught of challenges we face as we grow and develop. But, we stumble along, often grabbing at crutches that soothe us for a while, but end up bringing us to our knees. My role in addiction recovery is helping you find positive soothing habits, helping you learn how regulate your emotions so that soothing is needed less on the whole, and helping you stay connected to your needs so that you remain in the drivers seat.

Do you wake up in the morning with a feeling of regret and remorse over how many glasses of wine you had, again? Are you struggling with a habit that you thought was temporary and now you find you can't walk away from. The realization that you may be struggling with an addiction may gradually unfold or a loved one may bring it to your attention. Often addiction arises from a need to 'take oneself away' from the rough spots on life or it may be a habit out of control. Whatever the background, together we will look at what has contributed to your desire for you habit, what is reinforcing it and get you back in the drivers seat of your life.
