Cocaine, Heroin, Cannabis, Alcohol and gambling are usually the addictions that immediately come to mind for most people, but in addition to the more common substances and behaviours associated with addiction some people experience an addiction that they either feel too embarrassed to admit to or they question whether it is even actually an addiction at all.
If your question is can I be addicted for example to a sexual behaviour, love, work, food, Internet, shopping, video gaming? The answer is 'yes' potentially you can. So whether you are sure you have an addiction problem or you just suspect you might, I can help you understand whether or not you are dealing with an addiction, the extent of your addiction, options available to you and of course offer a treatment programme including psychotherapy to help you deal with your problem.
