What happens in therapy sessions?

You gain a better understanding of yourself and develop some tools to assist your recovery

Whilst the circumstances of each addiction are different, we may look at your situation to see how it relates across several areas of your life. Our approach is holistic, so by understanding past and current events, we get a picture of what drives a cycle of addictive behaviour.

Addiction is a disease, not a weakness in character. Our goal is to understand how certain factors in your life lead you towards addiction. We aim to help you develop an awareness of what triggers your behaviour and your reasons for needing to use a substance or a behaviour to feel 'OK' about yourself. Together we build a picture of you and what contributes to your situation.

But simply "knowing more" isn't enough. We want to help you develop methods and tools that you can use to support yourself. Strength comes from our relationship, your growing relationship with yourself, from understanding your psychological perspective, the sociological factors around you and from biological and spiritual elements.
