If you are experiencing prolonged or recurring periods of compulsive, repetitive and dependent behaviour, there is help and support available. Consulting your GP and accessing a counselling support service are normal ways of addressing addictions. At Counselling 4 U we provide personal counselling which includes help, support and care for people who suffer with Addictions. Counselling 4 U is located in Fingal, North Dublin. An Addiction is a chronic disorder proposed to be precipitated by a combination of genetic, biological/pharmacological and social factors. An addiction is a compulsive, repeated behaviour characterized by a complete loss of control and an overwhelming desire to act regardless of harmful consequences that may take place. The term addiction implies that harmful effects are being wrought as a result of any repetitive behaviour. When a person has a strong compulsion to do something that does not mean there is an addiction unless the behaviour is producing harm. By an addiction, it means that the behaviour is causing harm, either to self and/or to others, and that the person doing it has no meaningful control over it. It is a powerful, undeniable compulsion, and happens over and over again.
