During counseling, the causes leading to complicated situations are addressed. The psychologist also provides tips on how to cope with difficult and suppressed feelings in the future.

When treating clients with alcohol use disorder, our counselors use the 12-step program, which establishes and reinforces new and recovery-supporting habits through consistency. The counselor approaches each client based on their individuality – the goal is not always to focus on achieving total sobriety. Together with the counselor, the focus is on the process of changing thought patterns and lifestyle and attention is paid to individual achievements, such as shorter periods of sobriety. You should definitely turn to a counselor if you wish to overcome addiction, but cannot change your behavior independently, or if you have tried previously but have not reached the desired outcome.
Our addiction counselors have extensive experience and have worked with clients with various addiction disorders. Everything discussed between you and the counselor is confidential and non-judgmental. If needed, the addiction counselor can assess whether the treatment process should be supported with another intervention.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a purpose-driven, structured, and outcome-oriented collaborative process, aimed at helping the client solve their problems through various psychological techniques. The therapy supports the development of new skills that not only address current issues but also create patterns to solve similar types of problems in the future. While the therapist focuses on the client’s specific problem, they do not offer a single solution but help understand the underlying causes of the problem, providing the client with the tools and knowledge to help themselves.
CBT is particularly suitable for treating depression and anxiety disorders, but it is also used for various addiction disorders, psychotraumas, self-esteem issues, grief, phobias, and other problems.
A significant portion of the therapy is based on the here and now, with the primary goal of helping the client implement desired life changes. The duration of the therapy is limited, and objectives are precisely agreed upon according to the individual needs of the client.
In addition to in-office sessions, the specialist might give you homework assignments, the resolution of which is key to the success of the therapy. These tasks help reinforce acquired knowledge and significantly contribute to the effectiveness of the therapy.
