Benefits of Therapy to overcome addiction
A Place To Be Vulnerable
Taking help for addiction is not an easy decision, and counsellors understand that. That is why they work relentlessly to develop a strong bond with you. This therapeutic alliance between you & your therapist can make you feel safe enough to show your vulnerable side and find a safe space to put down your baggage.
The role of a counsellor is not only to help you overcome addiction but also develop skills, abilities & behaviours needed to protect yourself from possible relapses in the future. Hence, your therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that also prevents relapses.
Encourage you at Every Step
Qualities of a counsellor such as genuine empathy, effective communication, acceptance & positive regard can enhance intrinsic motivation within you to take active steps to overcome addiction.
