Are you tired of wearing a mask and not feeling like yourself around others? You don't have to be alone in this. I will sit alongside you and explore all that heaviness you are carrying together so you can finally put it down. Sometimes, we may not feel like we have control over our lives because of this, and the way we cope (substance or alcohol use, gaming, doom scrolling on social media, etc.) can get in the way of having connections and being who we really are in them. Counselling with me can support you in exploring these patterns, too, so you can live a more fulfilling, connecting life by being yourself.

Pain, manifests in many varied ‘illnesses’. Whether they be Physical or Psychological. It could be Arthritis, ADHD, Addictions, Migraines, or Mental Ill Health. The root cause is always some environmental trigger, whether in childhood or adulthood. The Medical Institutions treat only the symptoms of this pain, not the causes. Pharmacotherapy can be beneficial in the short term, to alleviate intense physical or psychic pain, but Western Medicine, has demonstrably failed, to address the causes and manifestations, of chronic illness: physical or psychological. I offer an initial Assessment of causes, and self-care coping mechanisms

I have a particular interest in working with people with relationship problems, including their relationship with their self and, with their own emotions and emotional regulation. This can manifest as social anxiety, with an underlying sense of not being good enough or being odd/not fitting in with other people and society’s expectations. If you struggle with your own identity - not knowing your own likes/dislikes/values (sometimes called codependency), then get in touch. We can explore together what gets in the way of you knowing (and accepting) the real you.

My typical clients are those affected with different forms of compulsive / addictive behaviours - these might include Porn, Sex and Love Addictions; Gambling & Narcotics abuse; or those who are Workaholics. Usually clients first see me when they have reached a major crisis point in their lives and are seeking a person who has an understanding of their issues and how to help change their situation by tackling their problems head-on. I also undertake Relational and Pyschosexual therapy for individuals and couples. Further details on my background and approach can be found online at www.trustedtherapeutics.com

Alcohol Use Counsellors

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
