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.

Although addiction has become commonplace in our society, that doesn’t mean that any individual’s story who is struggling with addiction isn’t as unique as they are. The life events that lead us to rely on a unhealthy behavior to cope with a particular situation can start to establish patterns in our lives that are hard to change. The addiction can become something that takes over our lives and interferes with work or relationships in a way that overwhelms us and leaves us hopeless. However, there is hope for change, regardless of the addiction. Accepting a need for extra support to begin the journey to freedom is what starts the process. Call today for more information.

I will encourage eliminating the shame and guilt out of addiction and compulsive behaviours and will help you find an understanding of the behaviours and thinking patterns related to the addiction. Addiction is a phenomenon that affects most of us in one form or another. You may be directly affected or indirectly through friends, family or loved ones. When you find yourself repeating the same actions or behaviours over and over again despite negative consequences, you may be experiencing addiction without even realizing it.

Addiction can be complicated and there can be many layers of struggle. My approach is to understand where a person has come from in order to understand what has brought them to counselling today. I am informed by the Response Based Approach, Narrative Therapy, and Systemic Family Therapy. It is important to work together in a way that protects the client's dignity and worth. Goals and treatment are negotiated with clients and are collaborative.
