Addiction & Recovery

Addictions Counselling, Calgary

An addiction can be anything that places a repeated demand of engagement upon an individual, typically being chemical or psychological in nature. Addictions come in many forms. They can be:

  1. the reliance upon substances such as alcohol, nicotine and drugs, or
  2. the reliance upon activities such as overpowering urges for gambling, sex, achievement, pornography, internet-use, etc.

While 12-step programs have proven to be very helpful to many people, they are not always sufficient. Addictions rarely occur on their own. Many psychological factors must be taken into account, with which a trained professional can help. Counselling can help to understand the addiction and to develop individualized strategies to regaining your freedom.

Fatigue, Eating & Sleeping Therapy

There are two main eating disorders: anorexia nervosa and bulimia. Eating disorders are an obsession with food that harms a person's well-being and can cause much distress in the lives of those around them.

Recurrent sleep deprivation can produce:

  1. irritability,
  2. tiredness, and
  3. depressive thinking.

Without the proper sleep, more serious problems can occur. Chronic fatigue can cause a person to become seriously depressed and disengaged with life.

Psychotherapy can help a person suffering from these issues in discovering methods to better deal with the symptoms, life circumstances and to break free from unhelpful patterns. Feel free to call us at 403-220-1101. Wed love to talk with you about how we can help.
