Choosing The Best Online Counselling Service In Singapore

CHOOSING THE BEST ONLINE ADDICTION COUNSELLING SERVICE IN SINGAPORE

 

Online therapy, e-counselling, remote counselling and alcohol or 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 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 individual counselling and have incorporated
this into our practice by offer video calls via various platforms including Skype, WhatsApp,
Viber, Botim and Google Hangouts.
All of these services are free to use to access our online counselling services which include
affordable private one to one counselling along with both paid and free online therapy options
for family members.

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 London where we are actively promoting our
services to clients.

WHAT DETERMINES THE BEST COUNSELLING SERVICE?

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 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 before starting the session

addictions therapist can be found at https://howtotreataddiction.com/frequently-asked-
questions.

WHAT TYPES OF COUNSELLING ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE IN SINGAPORE?

How to Treat Addiction are specialists in addiction counselling, family therapy, post-rehab
aftercare, relapse prevention and recovery planning. The most common approaches to
modern counselling include CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy) Mindfulness,
Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and free Family therapy with our online weekly support group.
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 or any kind of counselling
services in Singapore you must find the right therapist you trust.
