Addictions or problematic compulsive habits, including addictions to alcohol, substances, food or other compulsions, can create a sense of loss of control over our lives and well-being. I provide assistance to help people overcome compulsive behavior that is playing a destructive role in their lives. By understanding addictions, the role they play, and implementing healthy approaches to dealing with emotional pain or discomfort, compulsive behavior can be managed so that you can enjoy life and create personal fulfillment. I provide training in hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique, goal setting and EMDR to facilitate mastery over addictive behavior.

Whether substances, shopping or pornography, addiction can show up in many different ways. Activities that started off as fun can take over and leave you feeling out-of-control. This can lead to feelings of shame and guilt. A negative cycle can come into play where the addictive behavior is used to find distraction from the feelings of shame and guilt and the temporary relief is followed by more shame and guilt. Working with a counsellor can help to explore the thoughts, emotions and other factors that may be contributing to addictive behavior. Through experimenting with different tools and techniques you can increase your understanding of your situation and gradually shift your experience.

“It was a long and heavy day and I just need to break the edge.” “I communicate better after few drinks” “I can’t fall asleep if I don’t have my…” When a substance becomes a “priority”, or becomes overused, it begins to creep into and destroy an individual’s health, family, relationship and even work. The question becomes "Do I have control over it or does it have control over me?". Often substances are used as coping mechanism without realizing that it often creates even more anxiety and depression, leaving a person feeling more stress and low down the road. Feeling anxious without a "quick fix" or a “temporary Band-Aid” is a strong indicator that a person is or has lost control with the desired substance. In counselling, we work to support...(view profile to read more)

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.

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.
