Addiction Counselling and Therapy
We all have things we enjoy in life for example a glass of wine with a nice meal or a shopping trip after payday. However when we start engaging in certain behaviors to excess and feel we can't say no to them, we may have an addiction.
Addictions tend to be unhealthy since by their very nature we often find it difficult to control them and they may be detrimental to other aspects of our lives.
Examples of common addictions include;
Drugs - recreational and prescription
How therapy can help
Having an addiction may leave us feeling disempowered to change with low motivation for other aspects of our lives, especially if we have tried and been unable to control it before. Addictions can also impact negatively on our relationships and financial status which may create further difficulties.
Speaking to a trained professional in a safe and confidential environment can help to explore the addiction, its maintaining factors, ways to change and manage the potential for future relapse.

"My drinking had controlled me for years and driven away several partners. Wendy helped me understand why I drank and through counselling I finally managed to address these reasons. I can now identify my potential triggers for drinking again and choose healthier alternatives instead. Would recommend her as a therapist".

"I told myself having a flutter down the bookies was normal until I started spending the kids money when I ran out of my own. Counselling helped me break this addiction and I am very grateful. Thank you."
