I believe that everyone in our society suffers from addictions of one kind or another. Behind most addictions is a yearning for transcendent experience, something that takes us beyond the pain and chaos of our lives. I think the treatment of addiction involves finding alternative ways of expressing that yearning. It also requires learning strategies for managing addictions. Some people can give up an addiction altogether with some help. Other people, often for reasons beyond their control, really cannot. With addiction therapy, they can learn to accept themselves as they are and they can learn strategies for containing their addictions so they don't destroy their lives.

Addiction can come in many forms, from substance abuse, to food addiction, gambling, sexual addiction, internet addiction, spending addictions, workaholism, and many others. The root cause of all addictions is a lack of connection to all aspects of self and others. I can support you to resolve underlying issues that create addiction and to put in place strategies to take back control over your life and wellbeing.

Along with a more conventional form of therapy for addictions, I will also focus on the cause of addictive behavior and will utilize less conventional methods of ferreting out the conditions, criteria, and even purpose (how does addictive behavior benefit you?) behind the behavior. Addictions are a complicated issue, and the more the client understands the deeply rooted causes of their behavior the better chance he or she may have in controlling the condition. It isn't just about stopping the behavior but discovering the meaning behind the choices being made.

In L3Z 2B8 - Nearby to Barclay.

In my approach to addictions I work with clients to understand how the addiction may be helping them to cope and help them to learn alternate healthy coping mechanisms. Addressing related underlying issues may also be important in helping clients to leave the addiction behind. Although clients often find it difficult to let go of the addiction, they slowly feel ready as they begin to take steps and have more positive life experiences, which are also explored during therapy. Client strengths, motivations, hopes, and values are also considered and through these approaches clients begin to feel safe, satisfied, and happy living their life without the addiction.

Did you think how to reward and gratify yourself for your efforts, how to disconnect from negative emotions, how to "celebrate good and bad events" in life? Is alcohol. drug, food, or sex your way of pleasing yourself? Addiction is a compulsive engagement as an outcome of obsessive thinking regardless of negative consequences. Addictive behavior is rewarding and reinforcing that is why is causing repetition of action that you believe is "good for you" so you don't have to think clearly. Let's see if we can find the way to feel "high on life"through self-improvements.

Registered Social Worker

In L4N 5J4 - Nearby to Barclay.

In working with those with addiction difficulties, I want to help the client through the process of accepting the misuse, overuse or indulgence in problem behaviours, and begin a mutual recovery program from where they need to begin. Coping strategies, identifying triggers and high risk situations, and planning for relapse with specific skills training help the client through the stages of change and into long term recovery. Underlying issues that cause mood disregulation, poor coping abilities, and stress are explored. Promoting sense of self, worthiness, and addressing lifestyle changes produce positive results.

Sexual addiction can be devastating, shaming and destructive to healthy relationships. Sex addiction counselling can help you to better understand the addiction and to find ways to free yourself from the addiction cycle. We start by exploring how the brain works and how people become addicted. Then we work to provide the support required and the steps needed for change to happen at physical, emotional and behavioural and physiological levels.

Registered Psychotherapist

In L4P 3K9 - Nearby to Barclay.

While I have had little training for addiction, I can offer counselling for the anxiety, depression, family relationship challenges, and boundary-setting related to the addiction. Addiction often requires medical professionals, counsellors, family and a strong support system so I am often a member of a team helping a person and/or family. My passion is to find a cause for the use of addiction and this is explored with family of origin history and processing of past trauma experiences.

James Hollis wrote, "There are no Hells more hellish than addiction, for nothing seems more conclusively our own fault." Yet, addictions tend to serve a purpose- they help us feel free, strong, connected. As distress or discomfort mounts, we indulge in behaviour that is meant to alleviate. Too late we realize that these behaviours are insatiable and come with consequences. The thing that once solved a problem, has now created one. If you are living in that Hell of addiction, there are proven ways to get out. Scientific merit combined with attentive clinical care, I will work beside you, to repair the wounds that addiction has created and that addiction sprouted from.
