CHOOSING THE BEST ONLINE ADDICTION COUNSELLING SERVICE IN SINGAPORE
Online therapy, remote counselling and addiction treatment online are some of the phrases you may enter into a google search when looking for online addiction counselling services in Singapore. Whether you are looking for an alcohol counsellor in Boat Quay, an addictions therapist in East coast, drugs counsellor in Chinatown, one to one therapy in Central Business District or perhaps help with drug addiction or alcohol problem for family member working in CBD or even living outside Singapore then finding out more about addiction and what resources are available is the first step.
Before going any further let’s address some of the most common questions and answers when looking for the best online counselling service in Singapore.
WHAT IS AND HOW DOES ONLINE ADDICTION COUNSELLING WORK (IN SINGAPORE)?
In the digital age and modern lifestyle, online addiction counselling in Singapore is growing in popularity. Some online counselling platforms use SMS or email as their means of helping and speaking with clients. However, in our experience, these means of communication although useful for interim questions and answers for communicating between sessions should not form the basis for the main method of communication.
The major component of counselling particularly when dealing with addiction is talking therapy. We are a strong believer in face to face counselling and have incorporated this into our practice by offer video calls via various platforms including Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, Botim and Google Hangouts.
WHAT MAKES A GOOD ONLINE ADDICTION COUNSELLOR?
When looking for a good or recommended addiction counsellor in Singapore particularly online there are certain qualities within any counselling services that offer the best quality addiction treatment and aftercare. Areas of Singapore such as CBD, Downtown and Boat Quay have various resources for help with drug or alcohol problem, however, these may be limited and time-restricted to office hours only.
We many years’ experience we believe How to Treat Addiction is the best online counselling service in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bali and the UK where we are actively promoting our services to clients.
WHAT DETERMINES THE BEST COUNSELLING SERVICE IN SINGAPORE?
The word best implies the most excellent, effective, or desirable type or quality.
Although online addiction counsellors working with clients from Singapore are highly experienced, knowledgeable, skilled and empathetic we have an ethos that we do not take responsibility for our clients; successes, in the same way, we do not take responsibility for those who relapse and returning to addiction and the associated with old destructive behaviours. When it comes to long-lasting results and permanent change it is the client’s own motivation, willingness and determination that is the driving force. Our role to observe, guide, make suggestions, be empathetic and offer a high degree of encouragement but we cannot do the work for our clients.
HOW TO GAIN MAXIMUM BENEFIT FROM ONLINE COUNSELLING?
When accessing online addiction counselling services in Singapore we recommend the following
· Strong private internet connection in a quiet and private area with no distractions
· Be alert, focused, sober and not under the influence of drugs
· Be on time, turn off all electronic devices or notifications
· Log in to selected video platform 10 to 15 minutes prior to starting the session

WHAT TYPES OF COUNSELLING ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE IN SINGAPORE?
How to Treat Addiction are specialists in addiction counselling, post-rehab aftercare, relapse prevention and recovery planning. The most common approaches to modern counselling include CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy) Mindfulness, Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and Family therapy.
The most common types of addiction in Singapore, where online counselling can be of great benefit, are alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, gaming, internet and porn addiction.
Other core areas which can be both, directly and indirectly, related to addiction or substance abuse problems include anxiety, bereavement, anger, relationships, negative character traits, self-harm, depression, trauma and PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder)
Some of these core areas particularly trauma and PTSD can often be more complex and need to be treated by a Psychologist or Psychiatrist, therefore, session fees will invariably more expensive.
In the same way, when looking for an addiction counsellor in Singapore it is essential that you find the right therapist you trust.
How to Treat Addiction works closely with Dr Suresh Joseph formally Head Counsellor at the Cabin Singapore.
Dr Joseph is a Clinical Psychologist and works with clients internationally specialising in the treatment of PTSD, complex psychological trauma and other disorders of extreme stress not otherwise specified (DESNOS)
