ESH Works offer professional counselling focussed on the issues associated with addiction.
Many people experience emotional and psychological challenges throughout their lives but even more so when trying to deal with the issues surrounding addiction in families.
Counselling offers a safe and confidential environment to explore your thoughts and feelings at a pace that is comfortable for you. The focus and aim of therapy is for you to get a better understanding of your feelings, emotions and experiences gaining more self awareness.
Counselling is also about enabling you to make changes in your life. This often involves getting a clearer understanding of what led to a particular problem in the first place. Your current difficult and painful situation around the issues of addiction may have its roots in the past, however, you may not be aware of the connection.
During the counselling sessions we can discuss your current difficulties in the context of past influences and experiences, significant relationships, external influences, beliefs and responses. By making sense of the past and gaining insight into your current situation, you may be able to recognise more choices available to you in order to make changes now and in the future.
Counselling and Psychotherapy are ways of learning more about yourself and how you relate with others which ultimately will help you live a full and meaningful life being the person you really are.
Our organisation and our counsellors are BACP registered.
Sharing our Experience, Strength and Hope...
ESH Works is an established, independent, not for profit, drug and alcohol support organisation, offering private and confidential professional support, counselling, advice and guidance.
We provide individual 1-2-1 sessions and support for family members who are affected by substance misuse issues to explore their personal circumstances in a safe and confidential environment. We're then able to advise on the most appropriate and effective treatment and support the whole family through the recovery process.
The staff at ESH Works have extensive experience supporting individuals and family members through addiction problems with alcohol and drugs. Our personal experience, knowledge and understanding of the treatment options both locally and countrywide enables us to offer very practical support and guidance for families and individuals throughout their journey of recovery.
Addiction support is complex with so many different treatment options available which makes it really difficult for families and individuals to understand and decide on the right approach to take in order to address their addiction issues.
The cost and the quality of support varies tremendously but we understand the support options available, specifically the most effective ones from a cost and success rate perspective. We also understand about dual diagnosis and the issues that people face when dealing with mental health issues alongside drug and alcohol problems.
We pride ourselves on providing independent practical advice and guidance to allow families to make informed decisions about the treatment available. There is a fee associated with the support and guidance we provide, however, we could save you thousands of pounds by guiding you to select the correct support options and the most effective ones to give someone the best possible chance of recovery from their addiction.
Our focus as an organisation is on 'recovery' from addiction and we believe that the necessary support is most effective when it is led by people who themselves have experienced the problems and found a solution.
"The principle of 'ESH' works because the knowledge, understanding and skills required to face addictive behaviour can be passed on by people who have direct, first hand experience of these issues."
Independent, private, confidential support and advice...
Our service is a private and confidential bespoke service on a 1-2-1 basis supporting individuals and their families through addiction problems. If you have addiction problems yourself or in your family please call us for an initial chat to see how we can help.
We are a not for profit organisation, however, if you would like some further support after the initial call we do charge a fee for our addiction counselling and individual client or family support sessions.
At the first 1-2-1 session we will assess your particular circumstances in more detail and advise on the most appropriate and effective treatment options, whether these are provided by ourselves, the local authority free of charge or perhaps funded privately.
Initial appointments can be jointly with family members and their loved ones who have the addiction problem.
We may then be in a position to offer further sessions for the individuals and the families separately thereby supporting the whole family with practical advice and guidance.
ESH Works has a team of professional staff who are able to pass on their own personal experience of addiction and recovery to other people who are currently in the same position as they once were.
We deliver a quality service to people regardless of their gender, race, sexuality, nationality, religious belief or disability. We do not discriminate and we promote this important principle in all our activities. Our service is private and confidential. We will only share information with your consent or if there is a serious risk or concern.
