We provide addiction counselling services for individuals
Addiction is any behaviour that is repeated over and over despite significant negative consequences. A symptom of addiction is when a desire for something becomes a compulsion.
Addiction affects individuals as well as their family and friends. And in many cases, individuals are living with the despair and unhappiness of its effects on their entire family and community. MyMove Counselling is a place where there is a wealth of understanding, care and experience - right here in the community - that can help them make the first vital step to recovery from their addiction.

MyMove Counselling recognises family and concerned persons in all of its programmes. We understand the importance of helping families and loved ones learn about the effect of addiction and how it affects important relationships. Working with families is an integral part of our programme while a person is in treatment. Everyone who is close to an addicted person is affected in a unique way and can therefor play a key and different role in promoting recovery.
We offer a therapeutic programme in accordance with best practice, which is based on both an abstinence based model and a harm reduction approach.
Our programmes are carried out by a skilled professional team that respects dignity while fostering self-worth and supporting the emotional, mental, social, recreational and spiritual developments of each individual.
Through therapy, clients develop an acceptance of unwanted thoughts and/or feelings and work towards identifying and experiencing alternative ways in which to relate and cope with the unpleasant experiences associated with drug/gambling/alcohol use. This helps to disrupt the link between psychological/physical suffering and alcohol/gambling/drug use.
In this mindful context, clients ideally make decisions and choices based on important personal goals and values, rather than on avoidance or control through their destructive behaviour.
The following therapies are incorporated into treatment:
