Substance Abuse Counselling Services

No-one starts out thinking that they will end up not being able to stop or slow down. Even though they know they should. Even though there are many negative consequences to continuing.

You might have tried to stop but you don’t know if you can. It feels like no-one understands how hard it is for you. All you know is that there is an overwhelming urge in you to keep going and this is the only thing that seems to make everything else make sense.

Feeling like something is controlling your life, whether it be alcohol, substances, sex, porn social media or gambling can make you feel incredibly alone and like there is no hope. But there is.

Our Approach

Your counsellor has specialised knowledge gained from working with substance use. Seeds of Life counselling is a non-judgemental place to talk about how it is affecting your quality of life and you can be supported to make changes.

Via a process of psychoeducation and evidence-based interventions, we will work together to find what is going to work best for you in the short and long-term including minimising some of the harms associated with your use.

Next Steps

If you are considering counselling it means that you or others around you are worried and have realised that there are more negatives to using them than positives.

Now might be the right time to talk to Bec from Seeds of Life about taking the next step.
