Specialist Addiction Therapist

IMG_1999.jpeg

I am an Addiction Specialist with over 15 years experience helping people change their relationship with substance and addictive behaviours. I am a Qualified Mental Health Professional and I hold a graduate diploma and masters in Counselling & Applied Psychotherapy as well as many professional training certificates.

 

I am a highly skilled, compassionate, and solutions-focused therapist who is dedicated to providing exceptional care and implementing effective treatment plans for individuals experiencing or exposed to drug, alcohol and other addictions.

My approach to Addiction Counselling Therapy is to apply medical and psychological models of addiction together with an holistic perspective which considers the person within the context of their whole life. This unique approach integrates current life stresses with an awareness of past trauma to unravel and reveal triggers to the complex story of dependence and addiction.

 

I resource a wide variety of methodologies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy [CBT], Dialectical Behaviour Therapy [DBT], Acceptance & Commitment Therapy [ACT], Internal Family Systems Model [IFS], Family Constellations, Narrative Therapies, Family of Origin Systems, Brainspotting [BSP], Focusing and 12-Step Recovery.

In my counselling practice I integrate a range of modalities to address the physical, emotional, and energetic aspects of healing. I hold an Honours degree in Psychology, a Masters in Counselling and I am a trained Lifeline telephone crisis support counsellor. In my home town of Prague I studied Physiotherapy and Naturopathy, and later became a yoga teacher. 

My fascination with the body-mind-spirit relationship, and how this connection plays out in our daily lives, has led me to my holistic approach where I integrate the science of psychology with client-centered humanistic therapies.
