Psychotherapist - Professional Therapy by Phone & Email

547 Michigan Street, Suite 203, Victoria, British Columbia

Addictions and all compulsive behaviours can take over our lives and waste our money, damage our relationships and wreck our health and maybe even get us in jail. There are many kinds of addictions, gambling, substance, sexual, some phobias, porn, internet, cutting and many more. Specialized addictions counseling or medical care is advised when appropriate. Supportive, non judgemental, compassionate counseling with Dr. Graham will help you get insight into why you turn to harmful addictive habits. You will learn to identify the needs you are trying to meet and learn ways to resolve these needs with more healthy behaviours. Twelve step programs and other support groups may be discussed.

Nick Zwaagstra, MC:AT, RCAT, CCC, RCT

Registered Counselling Therapist / Registered Art Therapist

3621 Dutch Village Road, Halifax, Nova Scotia

My experience includes family support, mental health, & bereavement issues. I was also trained as a life skills coach - relevant to attending to feelings such as anger, handling stress – fitting addictions treatment. I also have a strong background in social work as well as counselling skills & I have worked with psycho-educational groups, goal-oriented and narrative approaches as well as systems theory. My counselling style embraces creativity and integrative approaches & creative expression - art therapy, in particular, with its use of symbolic language - gives opportunity for indirect narratives is very apt for helping people through difficult transitions and with addictions.

Mike Buckley, PhD Psych, MA Coun, RCT, CCC.

Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT)

36 Brookshire Court - Suite 200 Brookshire Centre, Bedford, Nova Scotia

I am an addiction specialist with over 20 years of addiction therapy experience and a PhD in addiction psychology. I use the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model and a holistic approach (in layman's terms - I work with each person as a unique individual). Some people benefit from 12 step approaches, other's do not. I have a wide range of tools in my tool box that help me to fine tune the treatment to the person - not the other way around. Recent brain imaging studies have convinced me that addiction is in the brain, not the bottle - and so I work extensively with people who have "process addictions" where gambling, sex, porn, internet, shopping, spending, and or gaming, are a problem.
