What is Online Addiction Counselling?

Online addiction counselling is a digital therapeutic approach that assists clients in addressing and overcoming drug or alcohol addiction. By utilizing video calls, therapists can provide support, coping strategies, and treatment plans remotely, enabling individuals to receive help without the need for physical presence in a counselling office. This helps clients reduce their addictive behaviour and reduce withdrawal symptoms.

Hey, I’m Luke Worsfold, the founder of Lisa Inside Addiction.

As a counsellor with 6 years of sobriety, my goal is to help you take control of your drinking.

How It Started

How It Is Going

I grew up with a mother who struggled with alcohol and passed away when I was just 10 years old. Unfortunately, I followed in her footsteps, drinking and taking drugs until I lost my partner, family connections and business.

I relentlessly searched for answers through google, books, AA Meetings and rehab but nothing seemed to be working… then I discovered…. ADDICTION THERAPY.

Thanks to the power of therapy, I was able to understand why I drank, earn back my loved one’s trust and break free my self-destructive cycle of drinking and using drugs.

Now I’ve made it my mission to help others take control of their drinking/drug use and reduce their consumption.

I can confidently tell you, you are in the right place! So book a call and let’s walk this journey together.

"It has been the best thing I could have ever done"

I joint Lisa inside addiction due to binge drinking and not knowing when to stop drinking once I start. I was in a low place when Luke contacted me and I signed up for the alcohol control program and 1 to 1 sessions with Luke. It has been the best thing I could have ever done, I’m now 6 weeks sober and have a complete different outlook on life. Luke has been absolutely amazing! He has gave me many techniques, one of which has taught me how to control intrusive thoughts which I struggled with. Since talking to Luke everyone has seen such a positive effect on me. I cannot recommend him enough, we’ve spoke about a lot of deep stuff but also laughed at past experiences. The program has shown me my triggers and how to deal with them. Highly recommended!

- LUKE

"Luke gave me the support I needed"

Luke gave me the support I needed to make some big changes in my life. The program he provided is comprehensive, and it all links together meaningfully to provide a really effective course. If you are ready and willing to make change for the better, this course provides a very strong base of support, focus and motivation. Strongly recommended.

- PAUL

"I have not had a drink in 4 months"

Luke has been amazing. He was exactly what I was looking for in a therapist, someone that I could talk openly with and on the same level. Sometimes we would work through exercises and other times we would just chat about what was going on. I have not had a drink in 4 months and with a bit of hard work from myself and awesome support from Luke here's to the next 4 and many more after :-)

Why is online counselling so effective in treating addiction?

  • Personalised Approach: Unlike some treatments that offer a one-size-fits-all solution, online therapy is tailored to the individual. Counsellors assess each person's relationship with alcohol or drugs, the triggers leading to consumption, and the underlying emotional or psychological factors. This personalised understanding ensures the treatment is adapted to individual needs, maximising its effectiveness.
  • Safe and Non-judgmental Environment: Online counselling provides a safe space where individuals can open up about their struggles without fear of judgment. This atmosphere is crucial for genuine introspection and candid discussion about one's relationship with alcohol use disorder.
  • Addressing Underlying Issues: More than just tackling the act of drinking, Online addiction therapy digs deep to uncover and address the root causes of the problem. Whether it's past trauma, stress, anxiety, or other mental health challenges, counselling addresses these core issues, ensuring a holistic treatment approach. This is fundamental to any effective addiction treatment program.
  • ​Skill Development: Counsellors equip individuals with coping strategies and skills to deal with cravings, peer pressure, and potential relapse triggers. This training empowers individuals to face real-world challenges post-treatment and overcome their mental health problems.
  • Support System: Online addiction counselling often incorporates group therapy, where individuals can share experiences, provide mutual support, and build a community that understands their journey. This camaraderie can be instrumental in learning to stop drinking and sustaining long-term recovery.
  • Continuity of Care: While detoxification and rehab might be short-term solutions, online addiction therapy can be a continuous process. Regular sessions can be scheduled, allowing for sustained support as individuals navigate the complexities of recovery.
  • ​Holistic Wellness: Many online counselling approaches, like CBT or Person-centred Therapy, are not just about abstaining from alcohol or drugs. These well-rounded counselling sessions promote overall well-being, teaching mindfulness, stress management, and emotional regulation.

How Online Differs from In-Person Sessions

While online counselling offers therapeutic support through digital means, in-person sessions involve direct face-to-face interactions in a physical office. The main differences lie in the mode of communication, with online sessions potentially missing out on certain non-verbal cues. However, many people find that the convenience and accessibility of addiction therapy online outweigh these differences. This makes it more convenient than other treatment options such as rehab.

Effectiveness of Online Counselling

Numerous studies have showcased the effectiveness of online video call sessions. One of the main benefits as stated by Chuong Ho & Melissa Severn, online counselling sessions “have the potential to increase access to care”.

While it can be as effective as in-person for many conditions like anxiety, depression and recovery, the most crucial aspect is the therapeutic relationship. The convenience and accessibility make online therapy a valuable tool in any client's treatment plan.

"He saved my relationship with my partner and my family"

I don’t know where to start…. Luke is amazing he saved my life he picked me up when I was rock bottom and has got me to where I am today completing the program and unchaining myself from my addiction. The tools I have learnt over the past 12 weeks have made me the person I am now, these tools I have learnt will stick with me through life and help me in day to day life. Luke made me realise that life is amazing, he saved my relationship with my partner and my family, he is so supportive and in every single attribute, his attention to detail in every session is amazing. Luke once again Thank you!

- JAMES

"Working with Luke has been genuinely life-changing for me"

Working with Luke has been genuinely life-changing for me. He has provided patient, actionable and supportive counsel during the darkest period of my entire life and within months has enabled me to take real action to make positive, habitual changes. Previous experiences with counselling had been negative, but working with Luke has been fundamentally different and more helpful to me. I believe that Luke's experiences, alongside his qualifications, make him a truly exceptional counsellor and I would recommend his support to anybody who felt they needed it.

- ROB

"As scared as I was to start the program, I instantly felt a connection as Luke is such a genuine bloke."

I cannot thank Luke enough for the help and guidance he has given me. As scared as I was to start the program, I instantly felt a connection as Luke is such a genuine bloke. I felt it very easy to be open and honest from the get go. Not once did I feel like I was being judged, which I think was most of my fears in the beginning. Most therapists I searched appear to have text book experiences, but Luke's been there and done it all which meant we could laugh about some of the stories we both had. Thoroughly recommend Luke, top bloke and very good at his job. Thank you so much!

How do I know you won't share my personal information with others?

Respecting your confidentiality is of utmost importance and is essential in building trust between you and your counsellor. Your counsellor is bound by the Code of Ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, which requires them to maintain confidentiality and protect your privacy.

They are an independent professional body that is responsible for setting and maintaining standards for the practice of counselling and psychotherapy in the UK.

What if I am contacting you on behalf of someone else?

If you are contacting us on behalf of someone else, it is important to keep in mind that addiction counselling is a highly personal and confidential process. The individual seeking help will need to be actively involved in the counselling process and must give their consent for any information to be shared. If you would like to purchase counselling as a gift for a friend or family member, you can certainly do so. However, it is important to keep in mind that the individual will still need to complete an consultation call and speak with a counsellor in order to participate in the sessions. It is ultimately up to the individual to decide if they want to seek help and participate in the sessions. It is important to approach the topic with sensitivity and respect for their autonomy and to not pressure them into seeking help if they are not ready. It is also important to respect their privacy and confidentiality.
