Addiction therapy & counselling

Are you looking for addiction counselling in Palmerston North?

My name is Mayan Schraders, professional member of the NZAC. I have a lot of experience with addictions.

We know that addiction changes many pathways in the brain. People can be addicted to a substance or behaviour – such as gambling or watching porn.

Some of the factors we have to be aware of in treating addictions are low self-esteem, a need to self-medicate to avoid pain (usually caused by trauma), and problems with maintaining motivation.

When working with an addict we need to work on two levels, both the day to day behaviour and the underlying problems. We aim to create new pathways in the brain and are working on supporting positive changes to keep clients motivated.

EFT has proven to have positive effects on cravings and is a wonderful tool in achieving healthier choices. I would love to help you too.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or if you would like to make an appointment.
