Psychotherapy & Addictions


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Are you ready to overcome your addiction and build a better life for yourself? Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can help you identify and change the negative thoughts and behaviors that contribute to your addiction, and develop coping skills to manage cravings and prevent relapse. CBT involves working with a therapist to identify patterns of negative thinking and develop strategies to change those patterns. For example, you may learn to challenge and replace negative thoughts about your addiction with more realistic and positive thoughts. CBT also involves developing coping skills to manage cravings and prevent relapse. With the right tools and support, you can break free from the cycle of addiction and build a healthy, fulfilling life.


Interpersonal Psychotherapy

Struggling with addiction and feeling isolated or disconnected from others? Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) can help you develop better communication skills, resolve conflicts with others, and improve your overall social functioning, building the strong, supportive relationships you need for a successful recovery. IPT is a type of talk therapy that focuses on the individual’s relationships and how they contribute to their problems. It involves helping you identify and address any problems in your relationships that may be contributing to your addiction, and develop the skills to strengthen and improve those relationships. With IPT, you can build a more positive and supportive network of relationships to support your recovery.


Narrative Therapy

Ready to rewrite the story of your life and break free from addiction? Narrative therapy can help you identify and challenge unhelpful thoughts and behaviors, and create a new, empowering narrative that helps you move forward. Narrative therapy is a type of talk therapy that is based on the idea that the stories or narratives we tell ourselves about our lives can shape our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In narrative therapy, the therapist works with you to develop a new, more empowering narrative or story about your life and your experiences. This can involve identifying and questioning the unhelpful beliefs and assumptions that contribute to negative thought patterns, and developing a new sense of identity and purpose that is not centered around the addiction. With narrative therapy, you can learn to challenge and change the negative thoughts and behaviors that have held you back, and create a new, more positive and fulfilling life.
