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)

What people say

I undervalued my own needs until I came for counselling with Karen. She has helped me realise that looking after myself benefits so many areas of my life. I’ve found that talking therapy has helped to remedy my issues rather than numbing them. It’s given me coping mechanisms for life and I feel so much stronger. Finding the right therapist is an opportunity to give yourself a gift. Therapy gives you the ability to see clearly rather than being in the thick of something you don’t understan…
