What is Addiction Counselling?

Addiction Counselling focuses on the issues of dependency and/or abuse with drugs, alcohol, food, sex, gambling, work, exercise, sex and relationships. Clients who struggle with addiction and compulsive behaviours will have a preoccupation with more than one addiction at any given time and will need to work through these issues to gain a structured way to work on themselves on a deeper level. Our therapists can help support you with a wide range of issues.

People who experience addiction issues may at times abstain from using a substance or compulsively obsessing with a particular behaviour, however, this tends to be short lived and without a structured programme they may relapse. Our addiction counsellors are also experienced with the philosophy of the Minnesota model and the Twelve Step Programme.
