Alcohol misuse involves the heavy and frequent use of alcohol. In moderation alcohol poses no physical or psychological problems. However, when consumed in large quantities it can lead to serious health problems and addiction. It is also attributed to a host of violent, anti-social incidents in the UK each year. Alcohol misuse counselling is available for people concerned about the extent of their alcohol consumption and counsellors who may be able to help are based in Highgate, North London and Clapham.
There are a number of key indicators of addictive drinking; the interruption of everyday life, a craving for alcohol, withdrawal symptoms, constant use and an inability to control consumption. Alcoholism is often linked to genetic connections, although other factors such as social influences and increased availability are also key contributors. If you feel a counsellor with experience in alcohol misuse counselling may be able to assist you we have counsellors in Lichfield, Islington and Mansion House.
Binge drinking is another form of alcohol abuse and is defined by the consumption of over eight units per drinking session. This phenomenon is becoming increasingly prevalent in the UK, especially amongst teenagers. Counselling approaches such as behavioural therapy and cognitive therapy may prove helpful, as they both place strong emphasis on the alteration of negative behaviour patterns. Counsellors who may be able to assist you with useful guidance are based in Herne Hill, Clerkenwell and East Finchley.
There are many signs and symptoms related to drinking problems. Alcoholism is considered a progressive disease, meaning that the symptoms and effects of drinking alcohol become increasingly more severe over time. Those who use alcohol may begin to show early signs of a problem, then progress to showing symptoms of alcohol abuse; if drinking continues, they may later show symptoms of alcoholism or alcohol dependence. counsellors who can assist you in overcoming your dependence on alcohol are available in the areas of Muswell Hill, Crouch End and Finchley.
Continuing to drink after it causes someone to miss work, drive drunk, shirk responsibilities or get in trouble with the law is considered alcohol abuse and counselling for alcohol misuse may prove useful in helping to alter behaviour patterns to escape dependency.
