Addiction Counsellor

Rhea Redivo, BSW, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

#219-219 Main Street, Penticton, British Columbia

Addictions are a coping strategy gone wrong. In the beginning, using may have helped to numb the underlying emotional pain, but over time it created a new set of problems that only added to the pain, including financial problems, loss of important relationships, and problems at work. 'Triggers' are those precipitating events that give rise to cravings to use. A common trigger is emotions, especially painful emotions that are seen as unbearable so our first reaction is to do something - anything - to avoid feeling those emotions. A key step in recovery is learning to cope with emotions in healthier ways. I can help you gain the skills you need to prevent relapse and live a fuller life.

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."

Personal Development and Relationship Counsellor

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
