Getting to the root of the issue~ the whole body approach
Addiction is a phenomenon that affects most of us in one form or another and can come in many forms. The most common addictions we are familiar with are alcohol, drugs, gambling and sex. Addiction can also be prescription drugs, smoking, food, relationships, co-dependency, internet, pornography, shopping, and even chaos. When you find yourself repeating the same actions or behaviours over and over again despite negative consequences, you may be experiencing addiction without even realizing it.
Recovery is about adjusting your way of living to allow you to experience life on life’s terms. In other words, learning to accept things that you cannot change and being able to determine the things you can change and adopting them into a new way of being…. Or doing things differently…without the behaviours that cause chaos. In essence, you become comfortable with being the real you and cope better with your emotions.
Penny has 8 years experience running Neurofeedback Programs at in-patient addiction centers in Vancouver & the lower mainland. She is specifically proud of the clinical work she provides for the Veteran’s Program at Together We Can Education & Addiction Center in Vancouver.
At UR Wellness Neurofeedback is our feature service for the journey to recovery, as it gets to the root cause of our limiting beliefs, which causes the shedding of the shame and guilt that fuels behaviours related to addiction. Combining Brain Training with other Biofeedback Assessment techniques can be essential to re-balancing the nervous system. Penny can help you find an understanding of the behaviours and thinking patterns related to your addiction.
