Emotinal pain is very uncomfortable. Sometimes it is short lived, but often it goes on and on. When the pain is ignored, we find ways to suppress it. That what addictions are. The pain may be suppress through food, drugs or work, to name a few but it does not go away. When the addiction takes over, it puts important areas of our growth on hold. Together, we will look discover what the pain is about and work to resolve it so that your life can be more fullfilling and satisfying.

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

In R2H 1J5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Our relationship with any process or substance (drugs/alcohol, pornography, shopping, work, gaming, gambling, social media) becomes unhealthy when it affects our lives in negative ways. Be it increasing distance/conflict in our relationships or creating financial/legal/health/career consequences, the result is a disconnect from our own true values and desires. I work with clients to develop curiosity-appreciating how the addiction, originating as an attempt to solve a problem (trauma, mental illness, stress), has now become the problem. Framing it as such, we can begin to work with dependence with greater perspective and compassion, shifting from ambivalent powerless to resilient action.

In R3G 0T5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

We all have emotional needs we want met. If we grew up in a perfect environment we would have no awareness that we have emotional needs. No one has experienced a perfect environment therefore we all have become aware of pain in our lives, we can call this a hole in our heart. Some of us seek to either kill the pain in our heart or fill the hole. Addictions are our way of dealing with the pain or hole that we have experienced in life. Understanding the process of how the addiction was developed and how we keep it going is important to overcoming our addictions. Counselling can help you understand why you are addicted and what to do to deal with it. All forms of addictions are dealt with.

Addiction Counsellor

Donna Youngdahl, MMFT

Individual, Couple, and Family Therapist

In R3L 0N9 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

I can help you understand your relationship to addiction(s), move towards readiness for change, and develop and implement a recovery plan (which may include additional supports, such as recovery groups or residential treatment). From a place of compassion and non-judgement, I understand addiction in terms of its impact on the brain, recognizing that as addictive behaviour increases, it can be very hard for someone to change without outside help. As Gabor Mate teaches, addiction is a response to pain, whether that be trauma, anxiety, a need for connection, or other source of distress. I will support you in the healing path to recovering from addiction.

Luella Jonk, PhD, RP, C. Hyp., CPC

Registered Psychotherapist, Certified Hypnotherapist, Professional Counsellor

In R2M 0T5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Not all addictions can be treated the same way, because we are all wired differently in our behaviours. Yet, as humans, there are core humanistic traits that are part of our makeup; that is, we are rewarded by endorphins - that feel-good chemical that stimulates our brain and changes us physiologically. We cannot underestimate the power of the mind. Many of us do not feel we have the capability to will our way out of a certain behaviour - while others feel they do have the 'will-power'. I help my clients stop the crippling cycle of behaviours that have overtaken their lives, and replace these with 'feel good' behaviours, simply by giving them the strength and will to succeed.

I help people break free from many types of addiction and I specialize in sex addiction therapy. My philosophy is to work from the "outside in." In other words, I give you many tools to stop your outward behaviors in the initial sessions. Once you have gained some sobriety, I will work with you on the internal issues that led you to the addiction in the first place. The core issues may include abuse, trauma, codependency, intimacy anorexia, depression, anxiety, family-of-origin problems and/or spiritual difficulties. The internal issues can be difficult to face but once there is healing, long-term recovery and sobriety from your addiction is attainable.

Counselling Therapist

In R2G 1L1 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Recovery from addiction is one of the most difficult things to achieve. Relapse is a real thing, but sadly it is often viewed as a moral failure. The first thing an addict needs is to genuinely sense their counsellor has unconditional positive regard. We want to stop the shame and guilt at our office door. None of us are perfect, so let's join hands and travel together. We will proceed by creating a tailor-made plan that will help you grow out from under the power of addiction and into a new sense of self-betterment.

Addiction can feel like an impossibly hard challenge to overcome but with the proper support it is possible to get better. Therapy can help by uncovering the root causes of why an addictive part of you has been triggered, how to soothe that part and heal the issues it is trying to numb. With that awareness it is possible to move forward with healthier coping strategies leaving you feeling empowered and in control of your life again. If this sounds hopeful, feel free to connect. I am here holding a safe space for you to do this transformational work.

In R2V 0B2 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Addiction is often seen as a disease; however, I see it as a response to some form of trauma (known or unknown) which has left the individual unable and/or unwilling to work through the: behaviours, emotions, sensations, thoughts, feelings and memories of trauma. This is understandable because to work through these components requires a good enough support team; I.e., parents, friends, therapists, spiritual mentors to name a possible few. And unfortunately individuals who experience addiction often either do not have these supports or are not ready (for a variety of understandable reasons) to accept these supports.

Certified Counselling Therapist

Addictions of any kind rob not just the one with the addiction but make victims of all who are a part of that person's life. Addictive behaviour runs deep and requires discernment and expertise to fully reconcile its harmful effects emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally and relationally. But, it is surely worth the work to root it out and bring peace and freedom for all.

Psychotherapist

In R3L 0G6 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Addictions are one way of coping with deep, unrelenting emotional pain. You may be self-medicating to avoid the painful thoughts and feelings often arising out of traumatic childhood experiences. Whether the addiction is to alcohol, drugs, pornography, sex, shopping or gambling the purpose is the same. You are desperately attempting to avoid debilitating emotional pain. Therapy can help you identify and resolve the underlying negative emotions that trigger your addiction. You can learn to control your urges and initiate alternate, healthy responses. You can start to feel physically and mentally healthier. Therapy can help you develop a positive sense of self, and re-establish loving relations....

Josiah M. Mutua, M.A. Counselling Psychology

Counsellor / Psychotherapist

In R3G 2X5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Whether it is a drug or behaviour, individuals struggling with addictions experience powerlessness and hopelessness – inescapably trapped as the addiction gradually and relentlessly replaces relationships and occupation, and sabotages life goals. Due to high rate of co-occurrence of addictions with mental, developmental, personality and post traumatic stress disorders, I make assessment for disorders and for relational and environmental factors. Interventions include treatment of disorders, resolution of underlying issues, development of and commitment to worthwhile goals in major areas of life, equipping with skills for relapse prevention, and establishment of effective support networks.

Addiction Counsellor

Lindsey Walsh, MMFT

Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy

In R2N 1S7 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Addiction is born of suffering and a need to escape. Together my clients and I work on the day-to-day habits and patterns that feed the addiction, while also addressing the core issues that have lead to the addiction in the first place. Often people suffering from addiction use it to deal with trauma and abuse in the past. Addiction often leads to great suffering in the present as it cuts people off from their families, jobs, and things which give their lives meaning and purpose. Understanding the suffering that led to the addiction and healing the wound that it caused is one part of the process. As healing happens, we can practice new tools and behaviours that lead to fulfillment.

I work with clients to help them find both support for their addiction both in therapy with me, and support in the community outside of therapy. I believe that there is no 'one-size fits all' approach to the challenge of addiction, whether we are addicted to a substance or a behaviour. Often, there is a a mood disorder, or trauma that interacts with addictions, I work with you to treat the underlying causes, as well as the addiction itself.

An addict once told me it's not quitting the drugs that is hard it's staying off the drugs that's hard. Relationships and a life focus have set many people free from the confusing and sick world of drugs. It is a journey you can not walk alone and is a courage's victorious journey for anyone who dares to be set free from the bondage of drugs. I have seen many people set free from drugs. You can be next

Karen Bourdon, MA

Counselling Therapist

In R2M 3T2 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

It saddens me that often people struggling with addiction receive such judgement. I recognize that every single one of us can easily fall into the cycle of addiction, whether it be alcohol, drugs, gambling, work, sex or a multitude of other options. I like to begin from a place of addressing the issue of shame, and then help clients become more self-aware of their feelings and thoughts. I then help them learn to manage life in a more healthy manner - slowly. I believe that every addict has some form of past hurts and wounding that I would love to help them work through, so that they can live a full and vibrant life.

Trying quit, but just can't? Dr. Don Russell knows that quitting a bad habit or addiction doesn't come without skill, and support. Dr. Russell uses a scientifically proven revolutionary approach to curb the urge, and change the thoughts and feelings that drive the addiction. "I never thought I could get rid of this" is a comment Dr. Russell often hears as people begin to experience of being free of the urge and the habit. Best of all this doesn't come through willpower alone. It comes from cutting edge therapy in a safe, supportive enviroment.

Addiction Counsellor

Kirsten Schroeder, BA, MA, MA (Counseling)

Psychotherapist

In R2H 0G9 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

You know you should stop, but the pull is irresistible. Addiction to a substance or a behavior is very powerful and can lead us to sacrifice the people and things we love for “just one more hit”. We use the addictive substance to temporarily suspend our more disturbing feelings, but it doesn’t last. The good news is, relief and change are possible. Using a transtheoretical model for addictions, I invite you into a caring, non-judgmental space to explore the root causes of your addiction and reclaim your life.

Michelle Morand, Online and Phone Support

M.A. Counselling; Successful Internet & Phone Counselling

In R3C 0B8 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

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.

Glenys Wirch, MA CPGC D.Min

Counsellor Therapist

In R3C 0G3 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

I work with addictions from a transtheoretical model of therapy. This approach is a model that embraces intentional change; client's decide what change they want to embrace. I focus on the decision making of the individual client, along with assessing an individual's readiness to act on a new healthier behaviour. I also explore and provide strategies for change, or processes for change. This guides my clients through the various stages of change. This is done in a client centered manner, essentially empowering my client's to embrace life in a new, healthy, and fulfilling way.
