Addiction has many faces. We are all familiar with the typical substance and alcohol addictions. A person with an addictive personality, however, may turn to gambling, pornography, sex and other compulsive behaviours in an attempt to find relief from anxiety, depression or general mental discomfort.

Are you dealing with addiction? An addiction counselling expert can help you reduce the harms and provide you with the necessary skills to overcome it in the long run.


Figuring out whether you’re in need of psychotherapy for addiction is the biggest step that you have to make on your own. Examining a few aspects of your everyday existence and behaviours can make it easier for you to find out whether you’re in need of help with addiction. Do you:

  • Lose self-control frequently
  • Get yourself involved in physically or psychologically dangerous activities
  • Find yourself incapable of dealing with everyday tasks and responsibilities
  • Experience financial or legal troubles stemming from your behaviours
  • Experience mood swings, sudden anger and outbursts
  • Lose interest in activities you previously enjoyed
  • Have relationship troubles stemming from your behaviour
  • Experience health problems.

If you are struggling with these issues, an addiction counselling expert might be able to help you.


Don’t try to overcome your addiction alone. Get the professional care you need to understand and manage your addiction once and for all.

An addiction treatment programme like the one available at the Counselling Clinic is tailored to your needs. We develop individualised treatment plans with each client in our programme. Your needs, your situation and your goals are unique, so your addiction counselling should be, too. Our counsellors are successful because everything we do is based on what you already want. You’re in the driver’s seat, but it’s not a solo journey. We’re right there with you, helping to keep you on track, pointing out the roadblocks and suggesting alternative routes.

At the Counselling Clinic, we work together to assess your addiction’s scope and origins. Together, we map out the best therapeutic approach to get you where you want to go in life while leaving addictive behaviour and other baggage behind. Whether you’re struggling with an addiction or you have a loved one engaging in dangerous, compulsive behaviours, you don’t need to go it alone. Change is possible, regardless of the severity and the scope of the problem and we can help.

You don’t have to face the journey to an addiction-free life by yourself. Addictions often have physiological and psychological components, but the professional counsellors in our addiction counselling programme can help. Schedule an addiction counselling session at the Counselling Clinic. Contact us today via phone or email to make your first appointment.


The Counselling Clinic was conceived to make in-depth counselling and psychotherapy services benefits known and easily accessible and available to the broader community.
