Addiction Treatment In London

Addiction is when someone becomes involved in a cycle of turning to substances or activities regardless of the negative impact it has on their life. Additions start early on in life when people grow up in an environment where they don’t learn to regulate their emotions well, this could be due to childhood emotional neglect or trauma. As a result of this people attempt to suppress their emotions using additive substances substances or behaviours rather than dealing with emotional changes in a healthy way. Effective addiction treatment involves restructuring how someone deals with their emotions.

Very thorough and attentive

I have attended and been seen by Dr Lincht. The service I had was excellent, she was able to give me a quick call back when I requested, when I was still making inquiries and and after the appointment she made herself available to answer my concerns. I would definitely recommend your company to my friends and family. Regards Phumla

I've just started consultation with Vjosa Hyseni and my initial call and subsequent session with her have been quite insightful and helpful. Vjosa has an in depth knowledge of her field as well as very warm and calming persona which really helps when discussing very personal and sensitive issues. A very positive experience all round.

I found my therapy very interesting and informing. It helped me to acknowledge things I hadn't done before. I'm really glad that I went and believe it will help me in the future

Very helpful team, quick to respond and knowledgeable.
