Counselling at Hope Rehab 

What is Counselling?

Counselling enhances your awareness by exploring your intellectual and emotional processes. Counseling identifies where the dysfunctional behaviour originated and looks for ways to correct it.

The Hope Center Counselling Method

Here at Hope, we use a combination of therapies to help you find the answers and solutions you're looking for.

What is Rehab Counselling?

Our unique client workbook has been designed and written by Simon Mott and members of the counselling team. It combines the very best in modern cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) with the tried and tested 12-Step Addiction Recovery model. In addition to the twice daily group therapy sessions, when you come to Hope rehab, you will have two personal (known as 'one-to-one') sessions with your allocated counsellor.

In addition to taking you through the programme and assignments laid out in the workbook, the counsellor will teach you how to use psychological tools, such as CBT. This will help you identify your feelings, negative self-talk, and core beliefs, as well as current and historical issues which will aid you to prevent relapse. Experience and empirical evidence has demonstrated that clients graduating from the Hope rehab treatment programme with a clear understanding of the true nature of addiction and a visual recovery and relapse prevention plan - both on paper and firmly imprinted in their brain - have every possibility of moving on to lead happy and fulfilling lives without fear of returning to active addiction or alcoholism.
