Chris Eggleton Counselling
I am a BACP registered counsellor, possessing a BACP accredited professional diploma. I have worked successfully with clients since 2003 as an Integrative CBT counsellor in the NHS, IAPT, MIND, Turning Point, CDSSL, Foundation66 and in private practice to address a wide variety of emotional and psychological difficulties, including drug and alcohol issues.
As a private counsellor, I specialise in working with clients with alcohol and drug issues to enable them to change their behaviour and to address the emotional and psychological difficulties that may underlie it. The consequences of drug and alcohol addiction and misuse are very often profound and far-reaching, damaging our lives and the lives of those around us. This deterioration in our personal and professional relationships is just the beginning. Ultimately, alcohol and drugs problems, if left unaddressed, almost invariably result in severe and long-term physical and psychological health issues from which, in some cases, full recovery may not be an option.
If you suspect that you may possess an alcohol or drugs related problem, it is always better to discuss your concerns and the potential options available to you with a professional, whether your GP or a drugs/alcohol specific organization or individual, rather than ignoring it and carrying on as normal or pretending it doesn't exist. The genuine concerns of those around you, however unwelcome they may be to hear, are often a reliable indicator that a problem may exist.
Why not consider the questions on the Do I have problem? page of my website for a possible insight into your situation?
You can access a number of specialist organizations via the Useful Links page of my website. I offer a reduced cost initial assessment session in which to explore your alcohol or drugs related concerns in confidence and, if appropriate, to discuss a course of therapy tailored to your individual requirements and circumstances. Details may be found on the Contact Me page of my website.
I work with my clients at the Centre for Counselling, 67-69 Widmore Road, Bromley, BR1 3AA. The rooms are bright, spacious and comfortable with full amenities and can be booked for therapy sessions from 8.30am to 8.30pm, Monday to Saturday.
