Hypnotherapy HQ is proud to present – "Treating a Client for ICE addiction" workshop with Stuart Fenton  This workshop focuses on counselling clients who are abusing or are addicted to crystal methamphetamine. Areas covered: How is working with a crystal meth user different to working with people who use different drugs? What is the terminology and culture in which meth uses operate? What is drug induced psychosis? How do I work with the families connected to an ICE user? What treatment options are available in Victoria and Australia? When is the best time to apply the harm minimisation approach and the abstinence approach? How do you support and treat someone withdrawing from Chrystal Meth? Are you practising enough self-care? ** With a perspective also using Clinical Hypnotherapy** This  workshop begins with psychotherapist Stu Fenton talking about his life as an intravenous crystal meth & GHB addict & describing the journey to becoming a drug and alcohol counsellor and psychotherapist.
