Addictions or Substance Abuse

Mind By Design®

Registered Psychotherapist, Psychology and Coaching Clinics
The constant use of some sort of “intervention” (be it drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc.) to look outside of oneself or feel better when life gets out of control. The problem is that even though these “interventions” might work in the short-term they do not help in the long-term, and usually make life spin further out of control. Psychotherapy and rehabilitation are used to help a person wine off of the aforementioned “interventions.”

Addiction counselling sessions can explore the reasons why the addiction happened such as the behaviour and the motivations of the person. This then helps the individual to become more aware of their actions and understand themselves better. This is very important in the process of recovery.

Addictions or Substance Abuse

Sierra Goldfinger

Registered Psychotherapist, RP (Qualifying)
As a therapist, I know how challenging it can be to manage addiction. Addiction can impact the quality of our lives, our relationships, and our connection to ourselves. Therapy can provide a safe space to navigate addiction and explore what you wish for in relation to the substance or behaviour. Discussing the addiction can also provide us useful clues as to what roots the addiction, allowing us to navigate the core issue at hand and explore preferred coping strategies. Connect with me today for a free consultation to begin your healing journey.

Meaningfully Connected Counselling and Psychotherapy

Registered Psychotherapist, MACP, RP
Have you been having a hard time coping with stress and unpleasant emotions? Do you feel on edge? Has using substances been helpful in this regard? Would you rather drink or smoke when you want to and not because you feel you need to? If so, then please reach out. Often substance misuse is a bandaid solution to deeper feelings, experiences and thoughts and feelings that long to be explored. Together, with your therapist, you can develop other coping skills so that you do not feel as dependent on ways of coping that may not be serving you anymore. Reach out today to work with Vade who has extensive experience in addictions, trauma, family systems, hypnotherapy, and inner child work. We prioritize rapport-building and using a compassionate approach so that you feel safe as you explore the experiences and feelings that are coming up for you today. You are not your difficulties and so it is just as important for us to explore your goals, strengths and story as we tackle the challenges that you are facing. If you are looking for a compassionate therapist who cares not only about your difficulties, but also about how they developed and impact you, who is culturally sensitive and aware, and who will support your self-discovery, we would be honoured to be a part of your journey. Contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation by phone where we can answer your questions. You deserve a meaningful and peaceful life.

"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.

Addictions or Substance Abuse

Tony Miller

Registered Psychotherapist, MA, RP
Contrary to what is believed, addiction usually starts with a positive impact on a person’s life and even sometimes saves their life. However, as the time goes by, this creative adjustment becomes outdated and turns into a problem. Therefore, working with addiction should not be about illuminating the symptoms or the manifestations of the addiction, but rather trying to understand the reasons underlying the addiction and the function that it used to serve. A successful recovery is only possible through understanding and even respecting the addiction. Schedule a free 15-minute consultation to see if we are a good fit.

Registered Psychotherapist, RP
While substance use typically begins as recreational activity it can become habit forming and often develops addictive behaviors interfering with other areas of our lives, such as relationships, jobs, and finances. To increase awareness and insight into the reasons for using, I offer evidence-based treatment while providing you with options along the continuum of the Harm Reduction approach towards abstinence. We will explore any underlying emotional needs and relationships. By gaining insight to any ambivalent thoughts and feelings around changing patterns of substance misuse I will support you in the setting and achieving of personal goals.
