Understanding Addiction Workshop

On 3rd June 2017 9.30am to 4.30pm, I will be delivering a workshop entitled ‘Understanding Addiction’ together with Andrew Hodder MBACP at the Red Brick Building in Glastonbury.

The event is aimed at counsellors and other professionals who might encounter addictions in their line of work. It can also benefit those who want to understand this complex topic for personal reasons.

Addiction is a health problem, a social dilemma, and a psychological and spiritual issue. In order to understand and treat it we need to take a holistic view of the person.

In this workshop we will explore what addiction is, what its causes and symptoms are, and also how to therapeutically help those who are in its grip.

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”

Edgar Allan Poe
