Addictions can appear in many forms including substance addictions, internet addiction, sex addiction, gambling addiction, shopping addiction, pornography, social media, excessive exercise, food, etc. Strong cravings with a loss of control can lead people to become addicted in spite of possible dire consequences. Counselling is one of several possible treatments available for addictions. Individual, group and family therapies have been found to be helpful in order to inform a client regarding the harmful effects the addiction may have on themselves, their friends, family and society. Promoting physical, emotional and spiritual well being is often critical for the rehabilitation process.

In V9T 6L8 - Nearby to Sechelt.

Addiction is the symptom of others issues. People abuse substances for a variety of reasons such as: to supress pain, to feel more confident, and to deal with an unresolved trauma. Addiction often spirals out of control, results in feelings of guilt and despair; as well as alienates the user from her or his family and friends. However, addiction can be overcome. Relationships can be repaired. I offer professional support to both the person facing addiction and their family to learn strategies to deal with the underlying issues, set boundaries, and develop skills to address your own or your loved ones substance abuse.

At the heart of any addiction is some form of pain and/or unresolved trauma. The addiction can be to drugs (both illicit and prescription), alcohol, shopping, gambling, sex and others. To treat addiction, we need to explore the pain/unresolved trauma i.e. "going beneath the waters of the iceberg". This can be daunting at first, but once uncovered there is relief and understanding. For a wonderful explanation, go to YOUTUBE for a 3 minute explanation by leading addiction expert, Dr. Gabor Mate.
