The Vesta Approach

 I believe that people use substances (drugs or alcohol) because they get something out of it. The first thing I establish is what someone likes about their substance and what isn’t so great, then our sessions with individuals and families will be based around that.

    The idea is that once we really explore this and identify what you or your loved one are getting out of your drug or alcohol, we can find other ways to replace this need. 

    I will teach families the skills they need to respond differently when their loved one drinks or uses drugs so that they realise they do need to change.

    For individuals using substances, we will carefully work through triggers and cravings and how to hande them to get to where you want to be. 

    You will need to make some changes, but it will be worth it. We will work together step by step and not only improve your life but your the life of your family, partner or friends too.
