Home » Alcohol or Other Drugs Counselling

Welcome to Light Mind Counselling & Psychology, your esteemed partner in mental health and well-being located in the distinguished city of Melbourne. If you or someone you know is facing challenges related to Alcohol or Other Drugs (AOD), our dedicated team of counsellors is honoured to provide comprehensive support and guidance.

Understanding Alcohol or Other Drugs (AOD)

Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) constitute a diverse array of substances that individuals may engage with for various reasons. From the social aspects of moderate alcohol consumption to the nuanced use of prescription medications and regrettably, the potential misuse or dependence on substances, including illicit drugs, AOD represents a spectrum of behaviours and choices.

The impact of AOD on mental health is multifaceted. Beyond the immediate physiological effects, these substances can influence emotional well-being, cognitive function, and overall mental resilience. Recognising the signs of problematic AOD use becomes a vital gateway to understanding when and how to seek help.

At Light Mind Counselling & Psychology, we acknowledge the complexity of AOD-related challenges and are committed to providing you with the support and resources needed to navigate this intricate landscape. Our counselling services are meticulously designed to address the unique aspects of your journey, promoting not only recovery but also a profound understanding of the underlying factors contributing to AOD use.

Our Approach to AOD Counselling

At Light Mind Counselling & Psychology, we comprehend that seeking help for AOD issues is a significant and courageous step. Our approach to AOD counselling is anchored in empathy, respect, and an unwavering commitment to personalised care. We recognise that each individual’s journey is unique, and our esteemed counsellors are here to tailor their support to your specific needs.

Our AOD Counselling Services:

Our counselling process commences with a confidential and comprehensive assessment. This inaugural step allows us to gain a profound understanding of your situation, identifying key factors contributing to AOD challenges.

Individual Counselling Sessions

Delve into your feelings, thoughts, and experiences related to AOD use within a safe and non-judgmental space. Our one-on-one counselling sessions involve collaborative work to develop personalised strategies for coping and moving towards positive change.
