Addiction Counselling

We are highly committed to your emotional health and personal growth. Our practice continues to expand each year because of our dedication to service and the personalized treatment of our clients. - Pareen Sehat MC, RCC

Beginning your healing journey starts with being heard and understood.

We are experienced counsellors, using trauma-informed therapies to facilitate a way for you to find your voice and take control over your emotional well-being.

If you’re struggling due to addiction, you’ve come to the right place.

Any goal you may have will be welcomed with support, starting with small steps that work for you and to hold space for your pain, grief or sense of confusion.

If you feel powerless in your situation, rest assured, we’re compassionate therapists in Vancouver who can help you alleviate the struggles you’re having.

Your symptoms can be overcome and we’re here to support your individual path to recovery.

We believe that change IS possible and that people can find freedom from their struggles no matter how deeply entrenched the patterns have become or how slight the change might need to be.

Addiction can take over your life.

We are here to support you in uncovering and processing your addiction and how it may be impacting your life.

Addiction is the result of trauma, whether physical, mental, or emotional. These are challenging topics but we’re here to discuss them with you in a safe and non-judgmental space.

You may feel like you are living in a darkness or prison of depression, even suicidality, one that is difficult too to explain or describe to anyone in our lives.

This is when we need empathy and respectful, collaborative guidance as we walk the path of change.

Addiction Counselling 1

Neelam Olk MC, RCC

I have worked with individuals and their families struggling with the overwhelming nature of addiction since the beginning of my career. I have personally seen many people process and overcome their addiction through a combination of maintaining hope and commitment, social support, and therapy.

Recovery is a process of change where individuals struggling with addiction engage in inner work to improve themselves mentally, emotionally, and physically in order to regain their sense of integrity and live a meaningful life.

I use a collaborative and holistic approach in therapy and my goal is to elicit the existing wisdom and potential inside all of us.

Healing from past traumas is about reclaiming and empowering ourselves. Unresolved trauma can dictate our thoughts, habitual patterns and behaviors.

Counselling can support your journey in increasing your conscious awareness of these patterns in order to heal and move forward with your life.

Together, we can begin unlearning and re-framing in order to attract a way of being that embraces self-respect, self-love and peace.

Addiction concerns are often a result of deeper struggles.

We work in using a collaborative approach, in which we explore the problems and their root causes and conditions to develop meaningful interventions tailored to your needs.

With a deeper insight of the underlying issues, we work together to facilitate the process for symptom relief, deeper connection with self and others, and a new way of managing fears.

It doesn’t matter what you are struggling with: We are here for you.

  • Alcohol and Drug Addiction (abuse of alcohol, narcotics, heroin, crystal meth, ecstasy, cocaine, crack, addiction to weed, etc)
  • Gambling Addiction
  • Shopping Addiction
  • Sexual Addiction
  • Love Addiction
  • Food Addiction
  • Internet Addiction
  • Smoking and Nicotine Addiction

Delaying your recovery can cause further challenges

Successful addiction treatment isn’t just about stopping the use of the substance; it also includes addressing the underlying issues, gaining insight into behaviors and implementing strategies to develop a better sense of self worth and control.

You have the capacity to make significant changes in your life when you gain insight and support through counselling.

We get it.

It can be unnerving to reach out to a therapist. You’d like to have some assurance that it is going to be of benefit.

It would be wonderful if you could get relief from your symptoms.

You’d love to feel unburdened by your worries and fears.

It would be a blessing to feel relaxed and at ease, as you move through your life.

While we can’t offer guarantees, here’s WHAT WE CAN OFFER…

We’re highly skilled at helping people like you resolve troubling feelings, thoughts, and experiences that may be plaguing you day and night.

We use advanced methods of therapy that are known to help people overcome distressing and traumatic experiences.

Like many of our clients, you have likely been struggling for some time before you landed at our therapy website.

We’d like to help you solve your problems. If life is stressful for you, now is the time to seek counselling.

Waiting likely won’t improve your situation.

The sooner you get help for addiction, the sooner you’ll be on your way to enjoying a more relaxed, stable and enjoyable life.
