"Not all addictions are rooted in abuse or trauma, but I do believe they can all be traced to painful experience. A hurt is at the centre of all addictive behaviours". - Gabor Mate, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction Addiction or substance use is not an identity but a behaviour, a way for us to cope with our hurt and pain. There is often guilt and shame associated with addictive behaviours. My hope is that we can work together to access resources, understand the addictive/substance use behaviour and find ways to to help you manage the risks of substance use.

Having an addiction is not a sign of weakness or lack of character. In fact, reaching out for help and being open to change takes a great deal of strength. My approach is one of openness and non-judgment. I follow a harm reduction approach meaning that I respect my clients right to set their own goals which will then guide our sessions. I appreciate that not everyone is ready to, nor wants to, work towards full sobriety. Harm reduction is about reducing the negative impact that substance use has on that person’s well-being and life. I strongly believe that any positive change is a success. If you think that my approach would work for you, please book a free consultation.
