I am often asked for help by people with drink problems: perhaps drinking more than they would like when socialising, or regular binge drinking, for instance. I have helped a variety of clients with all sorts of problems, past or present, with alcohol at my practice just outside of Battle, East Sussex. Sometimes drink problems are their main reason for wanting help and sometimes it is part of a range of issues.
Whatever your drink problem, I hope it is helpful to know that the alcohol is actually NOT the problem. It may well have become a problem because you have come to (psychologically*) depend on it to perhaps feel better able to cope with stress. Or perhaps you feel you can’t relax properly without it. Maybe it helps you to feel less anxious in social situations, or to numb/escape some uncomfortable feelings (for instance) but the real problems are underlying the drink problems. (* see note below)
The real problems are generally unresolved feelings from negative past experiences, usually from early life and often long-forgotten by the time a person develops drink problems. Whatever the underlying problems are, people generally feel ‘compelled’ to use drink to make themselves feel better somehow…albeit temporarily. Often these ‘compulsions’ are subconscious (i.e. operating outside of conscious awareness) which makes it more difficult in many ways for people who have drink problems.
I offer different approaches for this (and every problem) and the choice of which one (or more) to take depends on the individual and their circumstances. The decision is usually made during the initial consultation.
Please browse my site for information on the various therapies / approaches that I practise.
