Chris Marshall - Addiction Therapy Care

About me

I offer face to face counselling and therapy that is individual to you because we have all lived different lives and have arrived where we are via our own path.

If you struggle with addiction its not easy to stop on your own. With someone alongside you who will listen and help guide you, the journey can be easier.

If you are ready to stop then please contact me and I will be happy to help.

Stopping

We can work initially on stopping. There is often an internal argument, part of you really wants to stop as your life is being harmed by your addiction but another part of you knows it will make you feel better, even if it’s just for a moment. It’s difficult to find the answer to that argument on your own. I will help you to find the direction you really want to take. If that is to stop then I will help you with ways to manage those difficult first steps.

Oh and don't worry, I will never ask "why don't you just cut down or stop?". If it were that easy you would have. Trust me, I know.

Staying Stopped

We pick up addictions as a creative adaptation to manage the feelings we find so very hard. Often events throughout your life can affect you in ways you may or may not fully understand and you may have tried to distance yourself from the feelings they create. We can look at these, at a pace which is right for you.  As we work together we will look for ways to manage those difficult feelings without the need for the addiction.

Training, qualifications & experience

If your addition is alcohol, drugs (prescription or non-prescription), gambling, shopping or anything that you have to do and want to stop, I have a wide experience. I have worked with clients at APAS (Addiction Prevention Advise Service), the Health Shop (Nottingham) and NRN (Nottingham Recovery Network).

I trained at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) and achieved a First class BSc (Hons) in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a registered member of the BACP.
