I have been working in the addiction field for many years now and recognize that there is a common theme underlying addictive behavior, whether it be substances or activities. The alcoholic and the workaholic both face the prospect of dying prematurely and alone, but society views one with scorn and one with admiration. Many people are reluctant to seek help for addictive behavior because they know someone else "has it worse". Don't let other people convince you that your problem isn't a big deal. If it matters to you, then it's worth talking about. I come from a place of compassion, non-judgment, and empathy, three ingredients missing in the lives of many people who struggle with addiction.

I use a type of therapy called EMDR for addiction. This stands for Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing. Originally used for PTSD, it is very effective against addictions. It is a short term therapy that can be extremely effective in very little time. We identify triggers or urges that emerge just before one uses and we reprocess them so they are no longer triggering!

It's probably safe to say that we all know addiction in some shape or form. Whether food, alcohol, cigarettes, work, money, sex or day-time-television - we all share certain factors that make each of us vulnerable to some form of addiction. Some aspect of ourselves seems to be seeking the fulfillment of some important need. Perhaps a need to - relax, be noticed, connect, wake-up or feel alive. The list can get very interesting. Sadly, we come to learn that the satisfaction of our addictive behaviors is short lived (at least) and harmful (at it's worst) and may actually get in the way of what we truly seek. When we reach this point of realisation, therapeutic support an be greatly beneficial

My treatment approach to dealing with addictions is focussed around identifying the person's values, the use of mindfulness based 'tools' and strategies and finding out the causes of the client's dependence on drugs or alcohol. I find that individual counselling combined with external support is sometimes useful, e.g., 12 step programs, but not for everyone.

Real Solutions for Real Challenges Common Sense techniques. Short-Term & Cost Effective Most often addictions are a symptom of pain. hurt , and loss of some form. The addiction serves to reduce this pain and suffering. However, the affect is has on the individual is to make them feel out of control, guilty, lazy, and generally worse about themselves whin in turn drives them to seek more relief. This is often the downward spiral of the addiction cycle. Martin helps his clients reframe thier negative statements about themselves and then exposes the core beliefs that keep triggering their destructive and untrue beliefs about their whole character.

After working with clients that struggled with drugs and alcohol addiction, I learned that these clients need ongoing support after they leave their treatment programs. I help clients explore their stresses, traumas, and their mental and physical vulnerabilities to address the issues behinds their addictive behaviour patterns. The treatment plan includes an incorporation of mindful exercise and CBT techniques to regulate stress responses and reduce the stressors. Other evidence based techniques and literature is included in the plan to assist the client in adjusting to physiological and mental changes with no addiction and replacing it with positive changes.

Beneath every addiction is trauma. This means that the trauma is the issue and the addiction is the symptom. Working from this perspective requires connecting with the client so they can feel the strength and support that will be necessary to face the pain that drives the addiction. Healing the pain is the path to recovery.

Do you wake up in the morning with a feeling of regret and remorse over how many glasses of wine you had, again? Are you struggling with a habit that you thought was temporary and now you find you can't walk away from. The realization that you may be struggling with an addiction may gradually unfold or a loved one may bring it to your attention. Often addiction arises from a need to 'take oneself away' from the rough spots on life or it may be a habit out of control. Whatever the background, together we will look at what has contributed to your desire for you habit, what is reinforcing it and get you back in the drivers seat of your life.

Addictions Counselling / Treatment can clear any contributing factors that has caused or supports the addiction. When an individual is on the journey of recovery and finally free of the addiction, there is no transferring from one addiction to another addictive pattern. The central nervous system is able to let go of any contributing factors such as old traumas, loss, grief, pain, fear, anger, old conditioning and programming from an earlier time so there is no reason to numb with an addiction. The central nervous system is no longer in fight-flight-freeze-or collapse and the Deep Limbic System, Basal Ganglia, Prefrontal Cortex, Cingulate System, the Temporal Lobes are reset for balance.

If we all arrived on earth with an owners manual, it would be far easier to discover the most adaptable ways to cope with the onslaught of challenges we face as we grow and develop. But, we stumble along, often grabbing at crutches that soothe us for a while, but end up bringing us to our knees. My role in addiction recovery is helping you find positive soothing habits, helping you learn how regulate your emotions so that soothing is needed less on the whole, and helping you stay connected to your needs so that you remain in the drivers seat.

Starting an addiction is easy, one just have to start liking something. Quitting is hard. We all have addictions to something and the only reason it's "bad" is that the behaviour/substance leads to powerful cravings, a sense of loss of control, and leads to negative consequences that we ignore or couldn't deter us even though we see it. The focus is on how to start the recovery process, prevent relapse, and learn a new lifestyle that will lead to future success in managing the addictions. For many, this is a lifelong journey but with the right tools, it doesn't have to be a lifelong struggle. What we know is that we connect to addictions because we lack connection to life.
