Jeremy Addleman has an interest in working with trauma and symptoms related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He has significant experience in treating symptoms such as anxiety, hyper-vigilance, sleep disturbances, substance abuse/addictive behaviour, isolation, anger, and emotional reactivity. Jeremy also is interested in the connection between psychological trauma and the physical body and he is training in Somatic Experiencing, a therapy that incorporates both the physical and psychological effects of trauma, abuse, and neglect, such as persistent pain and gastrointestinal issues.
Whether it is in reaction to an accident, abuse, and even immense stress, our minds and our bodies will almost always react in certain ways to protect us. These defenses are helpful but begin to cause long term problems when they persist after they are no longer needed. Jeremy can offer psychotherapy for those who are looking for another way to address their persistent pain, lingering tension, or unexplained digestive concerns that may be related to psychological symptoms. He can help to create a new relationship to the whole body and bring you towards recovery.
Jeremy holds a master’s degree in counselling psychology from the University of Victoria and is Certified by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. His office is located downtown, close to Fernwood, Fairfield, and Oak Bay.
Jeremy is patient, warm, compassionate, and non-judgmental and uses the right amount of direction to ease clients towards their goals. During his time off Jeremy can be found in the mountains hiking and fishing with his dog, Cali.
