Hove and Lewes

Andrew Faulconbridge MBACP

Affected by alcohol or drug misuse?

I am an experienced Alcohol and Drugs counsellor and my work is based on helping people to understand their problems with alcohol and/or drugs and how this has become an issue that affects their lives. What starts out as a  pleasure can develop into something that effects relationships, work, family and other areas of life in an unhealty way.

The aim is to gain insight into the patterns of drinking,  how the past impacts on the present and then you can decide what needs to be changed to gain more control and choice over your life.

Not everyone drinks or uses drugs for the same reason or wants the same outcome, for example, abstinence, so it is important to come to an understanding in  therapy of what would suit you. I will work with you in a collaborative way and support you through this process.

I understand how deeply families, friends and carers can be affected by the alcohol or substance misuse of those they care about.

If you would like counselling because someone else's drinking or drug use is affecting you I can help you find ways in which you can support this person effectively and help you manage the difficulties of being in a relationship with someone who is alcohol or drug dependant
