Counsellors and therapists offering help to those with addictions are listed below. Please read individual websites for further detail about whether the therapist has specific expertise in, for example, drugs, alcohol, smoking or gambling. In most cases they will also have broad based experience and can help with other issues.
As well as the counsellors listed below, many broadly experienced and qualified counsellors will be able to help in areas of addiction, and you may find someone more local in our other therapist listings for psychotherapy, counselling supervisors or general counselling. As topics of discussion tend to be of a sensitive nature, patient confidentiality is essential, and therapists are expected, and may be legally bound, to respect patient privacy. BACP Registered counsellors and therapists and UKCP Registered therapists will be bound by the Code of Ethics and Practice demanded by these professional bodies.
