About Waterford Addiction Counselling
Waterford City’s only out-of-hours service dealing specifically with addictive behaviours and substance misuse. Provided by Barry Grant, B.A. Degree in Counselling Skills & Addiction Studies. Fully accredited member of the Association of Professional Counsellors & Psychotherapists in Ireland.
I have experience in dealing with a variety of addiction-related issues including, but not limited to:
Illicit drug dependence/addiction (Marijuana, Cocaine, Ecstasy, Heroin)
Addiction/dependence to presciption drugs/medication
Addiction/dependence to solvents
I also provide counselling services for family members living with addiction, where there may often be issues relating to enabling of unhealthy behaviours and co-dependence.
While my main focus is on providing counselling services to persons who are engaging in (or are in recovery from) addictive behaviours – and their families – I am also happy to work with clients presenting with non-addiction related issues. These may include:
Low Self Esteem
Many of the above issues can often co-exist with addiction issues and in some cases can be the cause of addictive or other unhealthy behaviours.
