The question is not "why the addiction but why the pain" - Gabor Mate. Addiction is rooted in human suffering and complex social problems. Drawing on the work of Gabor Mate, Narrative Therapy, Systemic Family Therapy, and Response-Based practice, I will begin to address the pain and suffering experienced by individuals and families. We will also exploring the social context the contributes to an addiction culture. One of the goals is to start to separate the person from the addiction. Each individual is so much more than the addiction they experience.

My approach to addictions counselling is to explore what is 'feeding' the addiction- in other words, to explore and discover what is missing in your life that you have replaced with drinking, taking substances, or whatever your addiction may be. It is my hope that you will come to identify and understand your triggers and learn better ways of coping with your issues.

Lets face it recovery from addictions is difficult. I offer support to those leaving drug or alcohol treatment, and stay in touch with my client's through phone or internet sessions. The focus of most of my work with client's revolves around solving the problems associated with them using substances to begin with, which often involves dealing with complex trauma, PTSD or family of origin issues. It is often the case that to stay "clean and sober" means dealing with these issues successfully.
