Many research studies have confirmed that addictive behaviors are usually caused by underlying feelings of anxiety. In other words, if you have developed an addictive behavior (i. gambling, substance dependency, etc), there is great likelihood that you experience excess feelings of worry and anxiety. Psychotherapy can specifically offer you strategies to manage the addictive behavior while helping reduce the feelings of anxiety that fuel and perpetuate the addictive behavior. Typically therapeutic modalities that help anxiety management (Mindfulness stress reduction, EMDR) have promising effects on treating various types of addiction.

Addiction is extremely complicated, painful and overpowering. You're a great person! One who wishes to have a 'normal life'. But it's not happen. You're trapped, unable to break the chains.

Addictions seriously impact our lives and make it difficult to through our days. By understanding the underlying reasons behind developing the addiction in the first place, we can identify and deal with these concerns and reduce/eliminate the need for the addiction itself. By engaging in "self-acceptance" surrounding our behaviours during this healing process, we are more likely to have a positive self-concept throughout this journey. We want to stop "needing" the substance we are addicted to instead of judging the fact that we are addicted.

In M4E 1R3 - Nearby to Ajax.

I have experience supporting many clients through their recovery from addiction (alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex). I believe it is important to complete some inner work and understand how you perceive your addiction. For many individuals, it is coping mechanism to "escape" from challenges thoughts, emotions, feelings, and memories. I support my clients in viewing themselves as strong and resilient individuals, who are working on an recovery as opposed to defining themselves by their addiction. We work together to identify both internal and environmental triggers, to reduce the likelihood of relapse.

Approaches to addressing addictions really vary from one treatment setting to another. My approach focuses on helping people manage their addictions. Not everyone chooses abstinence, and not everyone needs to. In fact, for many problem drinkers learning to become a controlled drinker can offer a more sustainable way of living. I tend to work with people to help them manage their addictions in a way that is sustainable, and in a way that works for their personal situation.
