About this DVD

Two million people in the UK suffer from addiction of one kind or another. Skilful counselling can often help addicts to understand their emotional needs and enable them to address the problems which underlie their addiction.

This DVD consists of an emotionally powerful counselling session with a woman (played by an actress) in early recovery from drug addiction. Within a safe space the client is able to explore her past in relation to the present and also to begin to understand the multi-faceted role addiction has had throughout her life. The client's story is one of terrible losses but also of an enduring hope that paves the way for recovery.

In addition to the counselling session there is also a commentary on the counsellor's thoughts and feelings about her client together with an overview of substance misuse and definitions of the many forms addiction takes. Also highlighted are the complex needs of the client and the importance of the counsellor/client relationship.
