Addiction therapy & counselling
Are you looking for addiction counselling in Palmerston North?
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.
I would love to help you too.
