Addiction Counselling

Personalised Care and Support

Our Skilled Therapists Provide Personalised Care, Supporting You on Your Journey Towards Sobriety.

Can Counselling Help One’s Addiction?

Personalised therapy or counselling serves as an influential instrument in combating addiction. This highly effective approach allows you to delve deep into the root causes of your substance dependency and acquire valuable insights to effectively handle cravings, triggers, and challenging emotions. Within the secure and non-judgemental environment of one-to-one therapy, you’ll discover tailored techniques designed to meet your unique requirements.

Individual counselling further enhances your self-understanding and cultivates skills to manage stress in more beneficial ways. It presents an opportunity to investigate the contributing factors to your addiction, including potential depression, anxiety, or trauma. Throughout this personalised therapeutic journey, you’ll learn how to recognise and manage triggers more proficiently, as well as identify and navigate complex emotions in a healthier manner, contributing to relapse prevention.

Addiction Counselling with CATCH Recovery Dublin

You will be paired with a therapist who will work with you during your first session to develop a personalised programme tailored to your needs. A variety of effective therapies are used by our multidisciplinary team of addiction psychotherapists, consultant psychiatrists, and psychologists to treat addiction. A combination of 12 Step treatment, Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) may be used in a programme according to the needs of each client.

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

A personalised ‘talking therapy’, CBT focuses on reshaping negative thought patterns, behaviours, and beliefs that might hinder addiction recovery. CBT equips patients with the ability to identify potential relapse triggers, enabling them to change their reactions and hence, the outcomes. Furthermore, CBT offers techniques to manage emotions and respond positively to different situations.

What is Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)?

Primarily designed to manage symptoms of emotional dysregulation and borderline personality disorder, including suicidal ideation and depression, DBT encompasses four elements – core mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance.

What is Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)?

Recognised as an effective treatment for PTSD symptoms, EMDR is founded on the notion that inadequate memory processing causes these distressing symptoms. EMDR therapy, through directed eye movements, target these memories with the aim of modifying how they’re stored in the brain, thereby alleviating or even eliminating troubling symptoms.

Counselling can prove to be a powerful lifeline for those grappling with addiction, be it alcohol, drugs, or pornography. Each counselling session at CATCH Recovery is precisely adapted to align with your unique circumstances, ensuring you receive the most effective care possible.

A multitude of factors may drive addiction, and our personalised counselling service can offer expert guidance on these concerns:

  1. Stress Management: Managing stress in healthier ways is paramount in mitigating cravings linked to addiction. Our one-to-one sessions equip you with essential tools and strategies to navigate life’s trials more capably.
  2. Anxiety: Often a significant contributor to substance use disorders, learning to manage anxiety effectively is crucial. Through our bespoke counselling sessions, we assist you in pinpointing triggers and developing healthier coping mechanisms.
  3. Depression: Coping with depression, a widespread mental health challenge, can be complex. Through individual counselling, you can uncover and address the root causes of your depression and develop better strategies for handling it in your everyday life.
  4. Untreated Childhood Trauma: Personalised counselling offers a secure space to process past traumas. Our therapeutic sessions guide you in effectively managing the long-term impact of these experiences.

In essence, counselling can serve as a transformative support system for anyone grappling with addiction, offering them the vital tools to heal, grow, and move towards a healthier future.
