Addiction Counselling

What is Addiction Counselling?

Addiction Counselling focuses on the issues of dependency and/or abuse of drugs, alcohol, food, sex, gambling, work, exercise, sex and relationships.

Clients who struggle with addiction and compulsive behaviours often have a preoccupation with more than one addiction at any given time. Addictions can often evolve from underlying, unresolved issues. Working through these issues in a structured way can help you stay in recovery, and can also help you work on yourself at a deeper level. Our therapists can help support you with a wide range of addiction issues.

People who experience addiction issues may at times abstain from using a substance or compulsively obsessing about a particular behaviour. However, this often tends to be short lived, and without a structured programme there is a chance of relapse.

Our addiction counsellors are also experienced with the philosophy of the Minnesota model and the Twelve Step Programme.

Fee:

Low Cost Counselling: £15 – £30 for 50 minutes

Private Counselling: £50 – £130 for 50 minutes (some therapists are a private healthcare provider)

2 years ago I requested a referral from my GP for NHS counselling to try to improve my self esteem and ease in social situations / relationships. Prior to going I planned on just taking up the 6 ‘free’ sessions on the NHS and was sceptical / unsure of what was involved.
