Drugs, alchol, food ,sex, gambeling...these do not cause addiction. Many people use or have used these in their life and do not become addicted. Some people are much more vunerable to addiction than others. I understand this and work form a bio/phycho/social and mostly spiritual model. I have worked for many years with people in recovery...YOU can recover and re build your life now, you can have the life you deserve. If you or a loved one is suffering because of addiction please call me or go to any AA NA or ALONON meeting that you can.

In V6Z 2R4 - Nearby to Lions Bay.

I've worked in Addiction for many years at treatment centres and in corrections. I'm well versed in the 12-steps approach and will apply this approach only when a client is interested and open to this. The 12-steps approach is not for everyone and so I also provide alternative ways to overcome or reduce one's addiction. Treatment of addiction starts with identifying one's triggers and then goes into alternative coping strategies that are proven to be effective. Time is also spent on examining the source of one's addiction so that change can happen more deeply. I view addiction as a symptom of a larger problem and believe if we mend the larger problem, the addiction will decrease.

There are many forms of addiction (ie., drug, alcohol, work, food, gambling, exercise, work). Many people find self help groups that follow the 12 step program helpful. Other people like to take a more personal form of support around their addiction issues. In that case, individual counselling can be helpful. The counselling I provide for clients with addiction issues is to help them set specific reachable goals. Coming to regular counselling appointments seem to help clients set up a personal accountability tool for themselves. Reaching goals can be celebrated and setbacks examined to determine how to move forward again with success.

It's probably safe to say that we all know addiction in some shape or form. Whether food, alcohol, cigarettes, work, money, sex or day-time-television - we all share certain factors that make each of us vulnerable to some form of addiction. Some aspect of ourselves seems to be seeking the fulfillment of some important need. Perhaps a need to - relax, be noticed, connect, wake-up or feel alive. The list can get very interesting. Sadly, we come to learn that the satisfaction of our addictive behaviors is short lived (at least) and harmful (at it's worst) and may actually get in the way of what we truly seek. When we reach this point of realisation, therapeutic support an be greatly beneficial

We will work together to identity your commitment level for change. We will work on setting small, achievable and realistic goals. Small changes will eventually lead to bigger ones. We will also need to look at any unresolved trauma or other challenges that may be contributing to your addiction. I will be supportive, attentive and create a safe place for you to heal. You will learn to address the real pain instead of numbing yourself with your addiction. You will be able to be honest with yourself and others, feel empowered and start living your life to your full potential.

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.

Aleksandra Dobric Stanosevic, M.A.

Registered Transactional Analysis Practitioner

In V5G 2H1 - Nearby to Lions Bay.

A person with addiction usually goes straight from feelings into behaviour. And it is usually such an unbearable feeling that the person resorts to 'self-cure', i.e. substance abuse in order to bury it deep down inside. So after building trust, I carefully inquire about the painful events in the person's life. As alcohol and drug abuse is often sustained by denial, the client learns levels of discounting the problem (How am I lying to myself?). Often, clients will embrace alcohol/drugs because they have given up on people; sometimes, they don't know how to protect themselves from poisonous relationships: "discovering a 4-step approach to assertivity" can be of much help!

In V3L 1A6 - Nearby to Lions Bay.

Addiction is a symptom, it is based on the belief that there is something wrong with me. The underlying cause of this behaviour is a feeling of hopelessness and helplessness. Once the belief in general unworthiness is corrected and replaced with loving acceptance, healing is inevitable. The belief in guilt and past behavior that is unforgiveable is an error that needs correcting, not punishing.
