Addiction and Substance Abuse Counselling: Take Back Control and Regain Your Freedom

Addiction comes in many forms and it doesn’t discriminate. People from all walks of life can find themselves struggling with addictions to alcohol or drugs, or behavioural addictions to activities like gambling, sex, food and shopping. Addictions of any sort can dominate your life, affecting your career and relationships and stopping you from being the best version of yourself. But addiction is an illness that you can recover from. 

You can get your life back on track — and you don’t have to travel the road to recovery on your own. 

If you’re here, you’ve already taken the first step by deciding to say goodbye to a life dominated by addiction. But we’re here to help with what comes next — taking the necessary steps towards recovery. At Happy As Larry Group, we provide the support you need to make a change, quit your addictions and achieve lasting recovery. 

Let Us Help You Find Freedom from Addiction

Through addiction therapy, including substance abuse counselling and cognitive therapy for alcoholism, we’ll help you understand your addiction, learn tools and techniques to cope with withdrawal, resist temptation, avoid relapse and become a survivor. 

We’ll also help you get to the root of any issues behind your addiction, such as emotional trauma or mental health problems like stress, depression and anxiety. Facing these issues is an important part of your recovery process that can stop you from falling back into the trap of addiction in the future. 

Our therapy also includes wellbeing coaching, because we know that addiction has a nasty habit of taking over your life and stopping you from taking care of yourself. You can work long term with Lucy, our psychotherapist, or you can go on to our bespoke “Stages to Fulfillment” programme to improve your overall wellbeing and happiness. This programme will be tailored to your needs, so it might involve improving your physical health with fitness and nutrition coaching or learning to manage your thoughts, emotions and reactions through mindfulness and meditation.

Whatever steps you want to take towards recovery and self-improvement, we’re here to help. Our qualified therapists and wellbeing coaches will help you learn to love and care for yourself again, include self-care in your daily routine and create a life that’s fulfilling, free from addiction and full of healthy habits.

Lucy will be there for you as long as you want her support and guidance. You can continue to work with her long-term to gain deep and valuable insights into your thoughts, feelings and mental health, and work through the many layers we all have as humans. You can benefit from her unique integrative approach that has proved successful with many clients over several months or even many years. Or if you’d prefer short term or brief counselling, that’s completely fine too — these are your psychotherapy sessions and ultimately, you’re in the driver’s seat of your wellbeing journey.
