I worked as a prison liaison officer for Gamblers Anonymous, and have also addressed Narcotics Anonymous meetings too. I am not here to stop you from being an addict, but to firstly help you to take ownership of the fact that you will always be one. Personal therapy is an opportunity for you to explore what is really behind your addiction, and in doing to hopefully address when you can be ready to address this self destructive cycle.

How Long Will I Need Therapy For?

We usually agree six sessions and review how things are going at that stage. How long therapy continues for is very much a matter for you.

Your mental health is of paramount importance at all times, which is why the sessions are geared completely around you. Our goal is solely about helping you.

  • No individual is the same, so no therapeutic approach should be identical. This is very much about tailoring the therapy to you.
  • My approach is warm and empathic and initially exploring not only how you can be helped, but how you also begin the process of allowing yourself to be helped.
  • We aim to develop your awareness about yourself and your relationships, then mobilise for positive change. Many excel when it comes to numbing themselves which, as we say in Gestalt, might have been useful once, but if (often) unlikely to be helpful now.
  • Loss I believe is what is behind how we numb ourselves with alcohol, drugs, or gambling and because it is hidden, we end up not dealing with it. Therapy brings empathic light to our darkness here.

Work Therapy Benefits

Because we become more available through therapy it has professional benefits too. This comes from our carrying less, so that we can perform more. The change I can assure you is exciting and fulfilling.
