Addiction counselling is beneficial for people who rely too heavily on drugs, sex, shopping, working, exercising and many other behaviors. By learning to focus on the reasons behind the addiction, and look at how to communicate their needs in a more open, non-secretive manner, clients can learn how to balance their life more effectively. Replacing their addiction with more positive and healthier choices and thinking, will place the client on the road to recovery.

Dealing with addiction is not easy. Addictions can put barriers between people and their relationships, families, work, and well-being. When the source of addiction becomes more important than everything else, it is time to seek help. I have worked with people from all walks of life: those who are working, with families; those who have experienced chronic homelessness as the result of their addictions; and those who are concerned about increased use of a substance or behaviour (drugs/alcohol/sex/gambling/shopping, etc.). I work with clients from a harm reduction perspective, in order to minimize the damage that a substance or behaviour is causing in a person's life.

Addictions are a form of self-medication or self-soothing. When we are stressed or upset about something, we just want to 'feel good.' Addictions are the result of relying for too long on some substance or behavior that 'feels good' - and then turns into a pattern of behavior, or an addiction. The process of therapy for addictions, whether substances, internet porn or other problem behavior that has become an addiction, involves becoming aware of of the 'dis-ease' that resulted in the development of the addiction, and addressing that through your counseling.

When I work with individuals who have difficulty with addiction we will first work to discover what is driving the addiction. Together we will discover past events which have lead to present day addictions. Hypnosis, Brainspotting, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) are helpful in moving through past trauma, allowing clients to alleviate trigger responses from the environment, which is essential in the healing process.

Using the steps from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy we can enhance recovery. The approach is simple, with direction. We analyse situation. Develop a plan. And enact that plan for positive results. Together we decide the best course of action. You always have input/reflection/insight on everything that is discussed in session. Addiction does not have to be viewed as an illness but as behavioural actions that maybe corrected.

Often times counseling triggers strong emotional reactions. Addictions are counter-intuitive to counseling, because they numb the feelings. Therefore, before attending your addictions counseling session, you must be free from your substance of choice for 24 hours prior to the session, and for 24 hours after the session. Only then will you be able to experience the full effects of the counseling session and begin the healing process. I offer 10 minute coaching phone call sessions in between counseling sessions for the first few weeks, to assist with the withdrawal from the substance. However, motivation to change is mandatory for the healing to begin.

Addiction is not a "disease." Many people develop addiction because of their family or social environment. Addiction is also a maladaptive coping behavior that is used to cope with stress, depression, or difficult emotions. I create a non-judgmental and supportive environment for clients who are struggling with this particular issue. I do not see abstinence as a black and white term. Instead, I view past failures and successes as learning opportunities. I also focus on the antecedents that contribute to substance use, such as interpersonal problems, feeling hopeless, or overwhelming emotions. Together, we will discover different or more effective ways to deal with life challenges.
