Styles of Addiction Counselling

Styles of alcohol and drug counselling used will include:


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of talking therapy designed to assist individuals in managing their challenges by reshaping their thoughts and behaviours. CBT operates on the idea that your thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, and behaviours are all intertwined, and that negative thoughts and emotions can perpetuate a detrimental cycle. 

Unlike other forms of talking therapy, CBT focuses on addressing your present challenges rather than delving into past issues.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative, goal-oriented conversational approach designed to strengthen motivation and commitment to change. Many individuals struggling with addiction face a lack of motivation to pursue sobriety, so the objective of MI is to overcome this. 

MI involves techniques such as open-ended questions, reflective listening, affirmations, and summarising to evoke and enhance an individual’s motivation for change.


12 Step and Relapse Prevention

We often introduce patients to 12-step programmes to provide a platform for them to share and hear experiences of strength, hope, and resilience. This form of group therapy for addiction plays a pivotal role in preventing relapse by equipping individuals with invaluable tools. 

By connecting with others who have walked similar paths, patients can create healthy relationships and establish meaningful connections. 

What Happens After Alcohol and Drug Counselling?

Your dedicated 1-1 counsellor ensures a personalised treatment journey tailored to your specific needs and goals. Many of our clients opt to extend these individual sessions beyond the completion of their treatment for ongoing support and guidance.

How long does drug and alcohol counselling last?

The duration of addiction counselling varies based on the individual’s treatment plan and progress. It may continue throughout the rehab program and extend into aftercare or outpatient treatment as needed for ongoing support.

How does rehab therapy contribute to the recovery process?

Counselling plays a pivotal role in aiding individuals to identify and confront the underlying triggers of addiction, develop healthier coping strategies, acquire relapse prevention techniques, repair relationships, and promote personal development conducive to long-term recovery.

Can addiction counselling be effective for everyone?

While addiction counselling can be highly effective for many individuals struggling with addiction, it may not be the right approach for everyone. Factors such as the individual’s level of motivation, willingness to participate in treatment, and availability of social support can all influence the effectiveness of addiction counselling. However, for those who are ready to make positive changes and commit to the recovery process, addiction counselling can be a very valuable resource.
