Addiction Counselling & Therapy in Brighton & Maidstone

Welcome to Addiction Counselling & Therapy

My name is Bradley Riddell, a qualified counsellor who specialises in helping people who suffer from addictions.

I offer addiction counselling and therapy in both Brighton, (in person) and Maidstone (online) & elsewhere for that matter, although you’re always very welcome to visit my Brighton office anytime..!!

Addiction has been described as a baffling, cunning, mysterious disease & as such, it can be very difficult to come to grips with it alone. Counselling offers a way to bring it into view in a manageable, recognisable form.

Ultimately “recovery” is about expansion into, rather than avoidance away from………

Talking therapy with a trained therapist can produce effective changes by bringing into awareness what you want rather than what you don’t..!!

I hope you find my website useful? And please do have a look at my blog page for articles containing tips, techniques & insights into managing urges & cravings & seemingly irresistible desires. These approaches have proven useful to many & they could prove useful to you too? If you feel ready do get in touch & let’s get the ball rolling in the direction you would like it to be going… opposed to the way it’s been for too long. It’s never too late to make a change & every journey does indeed begin with first step & no matter how far down that road we are it’s never too late to reappraise & change what no longer serves us or fits us……?

Very best wishes & I hope you have a lovely day….

What is an Addiction?

Addiction is one of the most difficult issues of the modern age.

Painful pressure leads to feel good pleasure and a habit is formed.
The feel good factor comes in many shapes and sizes and seductive guises.
When in pain we reach for it and it always responds.
It’s always there.
It never lets us down.
It always delivers…
…until it doesn’t, and then what?

With over 20 years of experience working with substance use and misuse, & over 50 years living on this earth, many spent travelling the world with no more than a backpack and a bottle & a bag of whatever I could find or lay my hands on by fair or foul means, I have learnt much about the secret world of the addict.

I have lived it and I have survived it and I would like to work with you to help you to do the same. It can be a rocky road and it can be a gruelling journey but when you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired the only way is endless recovery or endless sleep.

Ultimately “recovery” is about expansion not restriction….
