Excess stress and strain can lead us to drink too much. Drinking numbs our feelings and distracts our thoughts. Lots of people who come into therapy have a problem with drinking, and, like any addiction, a talking treatment can really help. At the clinic we have a specialist counsellor – Briony Martin – experienced in working with problem drinking. Our approach is to help clients work out what underlies their drinking and find a better way to deal with those deeper issues and feelings. Being able to talk to someone objective, non-judgemental and supportive can make all the difference.
