Any form of addiction (alcoholism, drug abuse, eating disorders, gambling, etc) can be addressed by helping people to learn how to tolerate their emotions. It's not easy to learn, but learning to tolerate having feelings and gaining control over your emotions is a rewarding experience. Sometimes a more in-depth approach is required, in which case I would help you to find a program that would meet your needs.

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.

I started my career working in youth treatment centers and then moved on to providing addiction support to adults as well. I provide counselling on many forms of addiction such as drugs, alcohol, sex, love, gambling and internet. I often find that individuals suffering with addictions also suffer in their attachments to others, and their feelings of connection. I hope to provide a safe connection where addiction patterns can be explored and changed.

“What is addiction really? It is a sign, a signal, a symptom of distress. It is a language that tells us about a plight that must be understood.” Alice Miller (in; Breaking down the Wall of Silence). “In the search for truth human beings take two steps forward and one step back. Suffering, mistakes and weariness of life thrust them forward, but the thrust for truth and stubborn will drive them forward. And who knows? Perhaps they will reach the real truth at last.” Anton Chekhow (in; The Deal) Conquering addictions is a life long process, filled with pitfalls and temptations. Therapeutic engagement is best thought of as a progression of stages, not in any particular order, but best taken in....

Addiction and or overuse or abuse of drugs, prescription medicine, and or alcohol is toxic for the client and toxic for the family. Admitting a problem, or reluctantly agreeing to seek help at a loved one's suggestion is the first step. My counselling is abstinence based until otherwise agreed upon. Moderation can be a goal with some however, typically only after at least a year of abstinence. Addiction counselling is non judgement, not contemptuous but demands honesty and disclosure. The goal is abstinence and relapse prevention in a supportive, caring and healing model.

In K4M 0A1 - Nearby to Smiths Falls.

In my counselling and hypnotherapy practice when I am working with a person who has addictions I impress upon them the fact that in the true definition of addiction it is a life-long challenge. For example, an alcoholic is an alcoholic for the rest of their life. They can also choose to be "dry" (without alcohol) for the rest of their life. It is actually very important to acknowledge when a person is addicted because then it does not mean that the person is "weak" or not really trying to rehabilitate themselves when they experience a fall-back. It reinforces the necessity of staying away from the addiction because of the serious impact that it has on their career path and social life.

Alcohol and drug use can be very difficult to overcome alone. I will work with you to understand the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that are connected to your substance use. Together, we will develop goals that work for your unique situation and your level of readiness for change. Some people want to reduce their use, others want to reduce the harm associated with their use, and others may want to become abstinent. That is entirely up to you. As well, I can help you develop healthier alternatives to substance use, improve relationships with others, improve work or school performance, and address the underlying reasons why you may use substances.

The underlying issues and struggles are explored in a climate of safety and a non-judgmental setting. Whereas difficult feelings are discussed and dealt with but in new and constructive ways. It is with greater self-awareness of their thought patterns and behaviours ensuring accountability that prevents a high risk of relapse. Choosing personal behavioural goals of either abstinence or reduction in defining their successes proves rather empowering.

I have a harm reduction approach to addiction. I am able to work with individuals that are managing their addictions and are wanting to decrease their usage. I can help with developing a plan to avoid triggering situations, developing safety and support plans. I can also help individuals to utilize coping strategies to better deal with powerful thoughts. However, I want to stress the importance of attending a treatment facility if the issues are severe.
