Happy peeps counselling and therapy provide alcohol and other drug (AOD) support for people who use substances and are dependent or have an addiction. The first step on your road to recovery is acknowledging that you actually have a problem. Our services are non-judgemental, supportive, caring and compassionate and we provide a holistic harm minimisation approach. We work together to set goals to motivate you towards reducing your use or if you choose not using alcohol or drugs anymore. Substance use may include cannabis, cocaine, heroin, amphetamine-type stimulants including ecstasy and designer drugs, inhalants or non- prescribed sedatives or sleeping pills, hallucinogens, or opioids.
Our psychotherapists will help you do this by discussing the underlying causes of your harmful habit or addiction and your attachment to your substance of use. Our practitioners will look at your negative thought patterns and behaviours around your use and set goals to develop coping strategies to help you take control and cope when you are not using substances and go back to living a happy and fulfilling life. We will work with you to find quick stress relief strategies that will work best for you to help you return to your quality of life.
