Have you ever wondered... just what do Psychologists do?
There is often a lot of misunderstanding about ‘what psychologists do’…
People often assume that psychologists or counsellors spend a lot of time solving their client’s problems or ‘fixing’ what is ‘wrong’ with them.
Well, yes, it is true that we do try to support people to manage problem issues in life.
But, what most people don’t understand is that more often than not, it is the client who holds the knowledge and the key to their own success.
Food, sex, drugs, alcohol, gambling, gaming, prescription pills, relationships, even exercise…all have something in common…..
They are all potential addictions.
But what is addiction? Why does it appear that some people who have had one addiction are more vulnerable to have others? Multiple addictions even?
Is it the age old idea that these people simply have an ‘addictive personality’?
or is it that they just simply lack self-control? Or perhaps both?
But then, perhaps the answer is….neither?
