Addiction can have many faces. Are you a person with a history of using alcohol, drugs or have other compulsive behaviours or addiction related to relationships, porn, sex, or love, or eating, to deal with past trauma, hurts, depression, grief, low-self-esteem?
Do you self medicate to cope with anxiety? Recovery from addiction can leave you filled with anxiety, anger, feeling depressed and insecure making you vulnerable to relapse.
Recovery from addiction is a long journey into self discovery. Addiction counselling can help with balancing the mind, body, spirit, and creating a positive perspective while developing healthy coping skills to help overcome negative thought patterns or beliefs that are destructive. Counselling can help you get to the heart of your problems and heal emotionally so you can rebuild your life from a place of strength, forgiveness, and self-love.
Various methods of relaxation are used to relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety.
