Addictions Counselling – Dr David Wells

Dr David Wells      Quals: B Psych (Hons), Dip Prof Couns, D Psych (Clin Geropsychology).

Addictions Counselling: Behaviours that are not good for us are easy to acquire. Alcohol is legal, so is tobacco smoking. But it is very simple for these behaviours and others to become bad for us. Bad for our health, relationships, work lives and for the individual. We may drift into behaviours that are not legal or socially outdated. When these behaviours become a problem, we need help.

Counselling Approach: First up is admitting that there is a problem. Many clients find this a problem, although other people telling you it is a problem is a good sign. Having admitted the issue, it is important to recognise that you have done well already, and that changing behaviour is the next goal. It may be small steps to begin with, but with a good therapist by your side, anything is achievable. Work in this area of human behaviour is about noticing the good work that has been done, and learning from any backward steps that are taken.
