Effective Treatments for alcohol dependence at the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic
Alcohol counselling with cognitive behavioural therapy is effective in helping to  treat binge drinking, alcohol abuse, alcohol dependence and alcohol addiction.   Very often we use alcohol to block out difficulties we are having including work  stress, pressure and problems in relationships. Alcohol is very often used to block  out the symptoms of anxiety, depression, fears and worries and in turn can create  problems with our self esteem and negative anger management.  
At the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic, Paul listens intently and with empathy as to how situations impact on you and  how they may encourage your use of alcohol as a means to cope with events in your life. Effective coping strategies are  put in place in the early stages of treatment so right from the offset you will develop the optimism that you are doing  something about your negative attachment to alcohol and we will continue to build the skills to take back control and  finally put an end to using alcohol as an emotional crutch.  
Specialist treatments to manage the effects of binge drinking and alcohol addiction  
Alcohol misuse is a result of the negative interpretations your mind makes to  events and situations. People who have an emotional attachment to alcohol   develop this at some point because they believe that having a drink will somehow  make things better or it helps them to block things out. For others there is a belief  that it helps them enjoy themselves, that others will think them more interesting or  that it helps with confidence.  Alcohol dependence is a symptom, not the problem!   Drinking alcohol is what you do but it isn't what the problem is. For the majority  of clients seen in the clinic for alcohol misuse the problem that needs dealing with  are underlying emotional distresses including anxiety, depression, low confidence,  low self esteem, stress or relationship difficulties to name a few.   So for example; you might be have a busy workload and having to meet  deadlines. You finish work feeling drained and believe that having a drink will  help you wind down and relax. Here the learned belief is that alcohol helps you to  relax so at any time where you feel stressed or under pressure your subconscious  mind will suggest that maybe a drink will help!   We train our minds to believe that alcohol helps in some way. These thoughts and  beliefs can develop from an array of situations which may have impacted on us  from our childhood through to adulthood. For some people alcohol dependence is  a learned habit because they have always been surrounded by drinkers. For others  it may be because of trauma and for others alcohol misuse may come about  because they do not know to cope and manage with daily life. Some people seen  in the clinic, their alcohol problem doesn't stem from anything, that their alcohol  dependence has just cheeped up over the years.   The understanding is that it's not the actual events and situations that makes  you drink but our negative belief systems and interpretations as to the  benefits of drinking alcohol.     .

At the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic, Paul has created his unique 3 step approach  to not only managing alcohol misuse but reduce and eliminate the dependence.  Step 1. In order to get effective resolve to your negative feelings, you first need  to understand them. As with anything, you can't fix something unless you first  know what needs fixing. As mentioned above, drinking alcohol isn't the problem.  Alcohol misuse is the symptom you experience.    Your minds interpretations and negative beliefs to events and situations are the  problem so in step 1 you will be helped to understand the false interpretations  your mind makes which encourages you alcohol dependence. With these clear  understandings you are ready for step 2 in taking back control.  Step 2. Now that you understand what's causing your alcohol dependence, you  are now ready to do something about it. Cognitive behavioural therapy at the Life  Change Wellbeing Clinic is effective in its approach and creates workable and  sustainable results because it helps you to listen to the negative messages your  brain sends you. You will learn the skills to stand back and effectively challenge  your negative thought processes and become more rational in the way you view  events and situations.   So for example; your brain might send you a message that everything seems  meaningless and every day is just another day. If you listen to these messages and  feed the belief then you will of course continue to seek solace in alcohol to block  out the negative feelings.    What if you were able to stop and rationalise the negative  messages your brain sends you?   Step 2 of the treatment will help you develop these tools and helps you to become  proactive in taking back control. You will be helped to stop listening to the  negative thoughts and interpretations by challenging the validity of such thoughts.   Step 2 helps you to become more rational by standing back and seeing a situation  for what it really is. Alcohol dependence is completely treatable and at the Life  Change Wellbeing Clinic you can create positive and sustainable change to the  way you see things in your life and dispel the negative belief that alcohol helps.  Taking back control to change your negative behaviour Step 3. This is where you will now make the behavioural change so your  automatic response of seeking solace in alcohol begins to recede as the benefits of  the first 2 steps take hold. In the first 2 steps you will have gained a thorough  understanding of how you feel, how your mind interprets situations and the  irrational negative thoughts which sustain your dependence to alcohol.   To get effective and long lasting relief from alcohol misuse and to create a more  positive future you will be helped to achieve lasting change in controlled and  graded steps. We mustn't just try and quick fix this part.   If we do all the benefits achieved in steps 1 and 2 will come undone and you will  end up back where you started. Our goal at the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic is to  create sustainable and long lasting change.   So in this stage of your treatment you will begin to manage the situations  which create the negative feelings and symptoms you currently experience.   You will begin to make positive changes to the events and situations which  impact on you the least, the situations where the urge to drink is the least. Paul  works in this way because it is important that you get success.   By gaining success in managing the events and situations that create the least  desire for alcohol first, your mind will be in the process of being retrained to not  use alcohol as an emotional crutch and with practice and continued effort you will  begin to feel less and less the need for alcohol.   With the 16 years experience Paul has gained he constantly gets positive results  by this method of treatment.
