An expert in addiction recovery and the substance misuse field, based on over three decades of experience, Colin has worked as a full-time counsellor in the NHS and rehabilitation centres in the UK since 1991.
Addiction counselling can prove very effective and helpful in overcoming alcoholism, drug addiction and or a process addiction (an activity or behavioural addiction: ie eating disorders, gambling, gaming, codependency, sex and love)
Counselling is a very flexible form of addiction treatment. A qualified addiction Counsellor can help to unearth the root causes of your addiction and heal them. They can also assist in changing the mindset that accompanies addiction.
Addiction is a disease of the brain and is centred on the individual’s neural pathways and thinking; this then manifests in compulsive and destructive behaviours of which they have little or no control.
Counselling can make a huge difference to anyone. There is certainly evidence to suggest that anyone and everyone can benefit from counselling whether they are an addict or not.
Whether you are struggling with concerns or have had a period of drug-free progress but feel stuck or vulnerable to relapse, Colin can provide specialist support and help.
