Addiction counselling can help you to get your life back on track.
In today’s climate it’s not just alcohol and drugs that are the problem, you can also find yourself addicted to gambling, sex, eating, exercise, shopping, pornography or the Internet.
Many people don’t see there is a problem until the day you realize that your life, your relationships or your work are suffering, or it may be you find that you are consuming too much of your time or money feeding this behavior.
Addictive behavior is for many of us a way to escape or distract oneself from pain. No one likes to suffer, yet whilst trying to avoid painful feelings may seem an attractive solution; it is superficial and does nothing to resolve the underlying issues. Pain and upset, whilst certainly unpleasant, are normal emotions that we have been designed to tolerate, and like any others, we can learn the skills to deal with more effectively.
