Drug & Alcohol Addiction

In a majority of case drugs and alcohol are used to self medicate when we find we cannot cope with a number of issues such as depression, anxiety and stress. While interventions such as CBT and face-to-face talking therapies are available on the NHS, you may have to wait several weeks to get them.

But there is an alternative option: Research suggests that online support from a counesellor can be just as effective as having face-to-face sessions.

What is a habit?

Habits are routine behaviours done on a regular basis. They are recurrent and often unconscious patterns of behaviour and are acquired through frequent repetition. Many of these are unconscious as we don’t even realise we are doing them. .

So we can see that habits define our character, our thoughts and feelings and our ‘usual’ behaviours. We can also see that habits are behaviours that are nearly or completely involuntary and because they are repeated frequently, we become ‘better’ at them (increased facility of performance)..

Finding the right therapist 

To find the right therapist for you will need to spend time investigating, but it’s worth the effort. The connection you have with your therapist is paramount. You need someone who you can trust - someone you feel comfortable talking with about difficult subjects and intimate secrets, someone who will be your partner in recovery.

Therapy won’t be effective unless you build this bond, so take some time at the beginning to find the right person. It’s okay to shop around and to ask questions when interviewing potential therapists.
