It can be overwhelming and confusing seeking help for a particular problem, which could range from identity confusion, mid-life transitions, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss as well as addictive processes and co-occurring illnesses.

It is not a quick or easy process finding the right treatment that suits your individual needs. I am sure that there are lots of questions, and fear that has emerged during this journey of seeking help. Whether you are seeking help for yourself, a family member or a ‘concerned other’ / friend, I can certainly help guide you in this process to the necessary help that you are needing, treatment options and recommendations. Be it individual therapy (outpatients) or inpatient residential care and /or support structures in the wider community.

When facing an addictive process you need not hit “rock bottom” before engaging in a treatment process. In fact, starting addiction treatment early may lead to better results. Even those that say “they aren’t ready” or “don’t really want help” can benefit from early intervention and the right treatment. There is always an external pressure that leads someone into treatment.

Addiction word cloudEven if you think you don’t have a problem but others are concerned, rather make an appointment to exclude the possibility of whether you have a problem or not. A useful question to ask yourself is ”what are you waiting for to happen before you make necessary changes?” The change process often occurs when humans experience a threat of a loss or a loss.


When we were children, we used to think that when we're grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability... To be alive is to be vulnerable.
