    Addiction is a reality for many people. It affects those afflicted and all that care for them. Addiction can be to substance (drugs, alcohol, pharmaceuticals) or process (sex, porn, gambling).

He can help you navigate your recovery without shame or judgment.

    Victims and survivors of traumatic events, domestic violence, bullying, physical, sexual or emotional abuse have experienced trauma that will probably stay with them in one form or another for the rest of their lives. Trauma survivors are numerous and the sources of thier suffering is frequently masqued by emotional problems, addictions and somatisation. Many people, with appropriate support, find ways of overcoming the hurt, moving from victimization to recovery and connecting more intimately with themselves and those they love.

Approaches

LGBTQIA+ informed psychotherapy

Jason Phelps offers psychotherapy services informed by feminist, queer, trans and other emancipatory movements.
