I have developed a Tool which records the client's feelings at the start of therapy. This enables me to measure the effectiveness of my therapeutic programme in a dynamic and powerful way throughout the process. This is hard evidence that my programme of healing and change really works in a short time frame of 6 weeks. All it takes is full participation in the programme.

We are all addicted to our way of life. This addiction or repetitive behaviour is only seen or accepted as an addiction if it is detrimental to our health and we are unable to give it up.  An addiction is something you can not stop; it is something you do habitually as part of your life. The fact is that without some addictions in our lives we would find it challenging to survive; it is all a matter of our degree of understanding. Acceptability is all a matter of whether our addictions affect our health or interfere with other people’s health.

 We generally only associate addiction with behaviour that is detrimental to health; the most common addiction being Alcohol. The first thing I would like to say is that alcoholism is not a disease … it is an addiction. You can not catch alcoholism. To stop being an alcoholic all you have to do is stop drinking alcohol. To stop being a drug addict all you have to do is stop taking drugs. That is not a disease … that is an addiction … that is a behavioural trait that you have taught yourself to do, and you have trained your mind and body to repeatedly reinforce your behaviour. Unfortunately the behaviour of an alcoholic will always have detrimental effects on the person’s health, and often will influence many other people, especially family and friends.
