Effective HELP FOR ADDICTIONS
Welcoming enquiries from Ruislip, Watford, Northwood, Hillingdon Uxbridge and Harrow.
If you are reading this page, you may feel that you are struggling to control your thoughts about, or use of a particular substance or stimulus, or want to help someone who is.
My treatment can successfully help people with the following issues:
- Gambling addiction
- Sex and porn addiction
- Cocaine addiction
- Cannabis addiction
- Alcohol addiction or abuse
Addiction or escapism?
The over-use and dependence upon substances is most often due to escapism. The desire for them is often less about wanting to feel good, and more about feeling less bad, less stressed, less in the here and now. Because of this, a more suitable description for 'addiction' is a feeling of vulnerability or powerlessness around how that thing makes you feel (or indeed, stop feeling).
There is always a reason that people feel addicted to something - perhaps its an escape from the stresses or boredom of everyday life. Maybe your life feels empty and their addiction fills that gap. More often than not, it's a coping mechanism to escape from negative emotions. Maybe you have the belief that your body is chemically addicted and you feel you don't have the ability or strength of mind to fight it.
You CAN take control over your addictions. Here's how...
I can help you to feel more resilient and take back control of the thoughts, beliefs, emotions and worries that make you feel reliant upon a substance or behaviour.
What is The Thrive Programme?
It is an easy-to-follow yet extremely effective psychological training programme to overcome mental health problems and learn to thrive. You will learn how to significantly improve your thoughts, emotions and beliefs so you can feel back in control and symptom-free.
You will develop robust mental health, high, stable self-esteem and self-confidence and be able to make the most of life whilst knowing you can cope when it gets tough.
How does it work?
Over 6 weekly, one-to-one sessions, I will teach you all you need in order to reach your goals. The sessions can be done either in person in my offices or via video conferencing such as Skype or Zoom.
A completely different approach!
The Thrive Programme® is a totally fresh approach to achieving lasting mental well-being. If you have previously tried other interventions or therapies that have not worked for you (as is the case with most of the clients I see), please be reassured that The Thrive Programme is completely different to any other kind of intervention available for mental well-being. The Programme is unique.....and it works.
