Addictions Counselling in Toronto - Change Your Life

Do you think that you may be addicted to a substance, activity or person? If so, you can get the help you need with addictions counselling in Toronto. With over 30 years of experience as a Certified Addiction Specialist, Betty Stockley can help you overcome various addictive disorders.


If you believe you have an addiction, you should consider the following questions:

  • Is your addiction affecting your home life?
  • Has your work life been affected by your addiction?
  • Have you experienced blackouts – hours or days – when you have had no idea what you did or where you went?
  • Are you experiencing tremendous amounts of stress in some aspect of your life? If so, do you handle this stress with the substance or addictive behaviour of your choice?
  • Are you afraid that the people whom you love are going to discover your addictive coping mechanism?
  • Has your self-esteem reached an all-time low?


Addictions come in many different forms and include the overuse of numerous substances and/or activities. Through addictions counselling, Toronto residents can discover all the benefits of enjoying an addiction-free lifestyle. We are here to help you cut the cycle of these addictions and others:

  • Alcohol, drugs and cigarettes – each of these common addictions wreaks its own havoc, destroying families, careers, health and lives. Don’t try to conquer them by yourself!
  • Gambling – if gambling is decimating your finances, you may be addicted. Get help from an experienced psychotherapist – Betty Stockley.
  • Excessive exercising – exercise is good, right? Not if it has become a compulsive behaviour. Let Betty Stockley assess your workout habits and help you if you have an exercise addiction.
  • Sexual acting out – it’s not hard to spot the danger in acting out sexually. If you have a sexual addiction, you could face disease and even death.
  • Excessive Internet use – the Internet can be a helpful tool in many ways, but excessive use can destroy relationships and even your career.
  • Overwork – spending too much time at the office can negatively affect family relationships, friendships and your own health.
  • Food – excessive eating or dieting too much are equally damaging to your health. Seek help for these disorders from Betty Stockley.
  • Self-harm – are you cutting yourself or engaging in some other form of self-harm? You’re not alone; others share this addiction. You can heal with help.
  • Compulsive shopping – do you use “retail therapy” to soothe yourself? If you are a compulsive shopper, you may be ruining your finances and family relationships.


Are you using any of the above substances or activities to numb yourself, self-soothe or to get away from stress? Through addictions counselling in Toronto, we can help you to better handle stressful situations that precede addictive and habitual behaviours.
