Has your life become difficult and unmanageable? Do you find yourself struggling to hold down your job or marriage? Have you noticed an increased use of alcohol, food, gambling, drugs or sexual behaviours that are now spiralling out of control? If you realise that you may have a problem in one of these areas, you have already taken a first important step on the road to recovery. Realising, accepting, and admitting to yourself that you have a problem and that you need help isn’t always easy.
Getting the balance right can sometimes feel impossible. Trying to manage the stresses of every day can soon lead to the excessive habitual use of substances and behaviours - that in the end still leave us feeling empty and alone.
We are here to help
We are an eating disorder and addiction specialist service based in Harley Street, Chelsea and Bermondsey in the City of London. We offer Psychotherapy and Counselling for Central London with Psychotherapist Philippe Jacquet MA, UKCP, HPC, BAAT.
No two people are exactly the same, and neither are their problems. Every case is as individual as the client, and that means every case has to be dealt with in a non-judgemental, sympathetic, understanding and caring manner. A thorough assessment of the client, their condition and their whole environment needs to be carried out. Only then can the appropriately integrated course of treatment be put together by our experienced, professional and fully accredited team of counsellors and psychotherapists.
We serve the needs of those suffering from addictions and their effects. Through therapy, counselling, employee assistance and access to spiritual retreats we offer support that recognises the roots of addiction and its expression through destructive and painful behaviours.
If you are finding that your life has been taken over by an eating disorder like anorexia, bulimia or over eating, or strong compulsions and habits based around alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex or relationships, it may be time to seek professional help from an accredited and qualified addiction specialist, counsellor or psychotherapist. Putting together a course of treatment takes a combination of skill, knowledge, experience, training and empathy that you will find throughout our team. They cover a full range of counselling and psychotherapy disciplines that makes them ideally suited to help you with your addiction or disorder
One of the most important aspects of any therapy is having someone to talk to, that will listen to you and understand where you are and what you are going through. Your program will be fully integrated and conciliatory, based on what we hear and see from you and any family, friends or colleagues that may be part of your support network.
It’s not just about treating the symptoms of your addiction or compulsions. We understand that getting to the very heart of what has led you to where you are, is vitally important to achieving a sustained and long lasting recovery. It may well be that you do not realise what has actually been the route-cause of your problems. We understand that, and we realise that it’s our job to identify the possible causes. Without dealing with the underlying factors that have led to the condition, treating the symptoms of the compulsion may be futile.
Nobody is going to pretend that recovery is easy, and it may well be a long and difficult process. There will be challenging times ahead, but by working with us you are in the very best of hands, to help you overcome the obstacles that stand between you and your sustained recovery.
Asking for help
You may feel that although you have some concerns about your behaviours, you are not at a stage where you need to enter a treatment program. In fact, that can be the very best time to seek our help, as early intervention often gives the very best chance of recovery. By acting early, you can avoid your problems spiralling out of control and taking over your life completely.
Alternatively, it is never too late to seek our help either. No matter how long you have been suffering for or how deep seated your problem, getting help from our team of experts can help you turn that corner. The road to recovery may well be a long and challenging journey, but we are here to help you every step of the way to a happier, healthier life, free from your addiction or compulsions.
Healing is a matter of time,
but also a matter of opportunity
