Imagine breaking free from alcohol addiction

Have you ever wondered if your drinking was normal, if you should quit alcohol or at least moderate, or why it was so difficult to keep your own resolutions and respect your own rules when it comes to alcohol?

 

Are you feeling tired, trapped, lost, ashamed, guilty, fed up with having this incessant discussion with yourself and full of self-loathing hangovers? If it resonates with how you're feeling at the moment, MHM Counselling is there for you.

It seems there is currently a gap in all the options available for problematic, high-functioning, binge or unsure but unhappy drinkers: between rehabilitation centres, community group support like AA, generalist mental health practitioners, and sobriety coaches. It felt something was missing. A place where it's possible to talk and explore in private and confidentiality with someone who went down that alcohol road and can have a genuine understanding and empathy.

 

MHM Counselling is committed to offer a safe, warm, and confidential counselling service to everyone questioning their relationship with alcohol. A place where you can talk about it without being judged or pushed to make decision you don’t want to commit to, and get the help and support you need to take any desired action.

Marie-Helene Marsolais - Alcohol Addiction Counsellor

Meet Marie Marsolais

Qualified & ACA Registered Counsellor

I’m from Montreal, Quebec, Canada and have been living in Australia since 2009 (Perth since 2010). I speak French and English. I’m passionate about mental health and living a healthy and balanced life. I'm interested by everything related to alcohol addiction therapy, recovery and studies.

 

I’m a qualified registered counsellor as well as a Mental Health First Aid Instructor delivering mental health training to organisations and workplaces in Perth. I have my own lived experiences and personal journey with alcohol.


Former party girl, I’ve been enjoying more than my share of happy hours to deal with the stress of a professional life and celebrate with friends. Later,  I became a Mum sometimes relying on vino for comfort and reward after an exhausting day. After the happy celebratory drinking years, my drinking slowly became more of a coping mechanism to relax and deal with various life challenges. Looking back, I can also recognise it was worst whilst going through some low periods. I finally decided to break up with alcohol after many pauses, questions, attempts to moderate, and too many mornings waking up restless, anxious, and ashamed. I'm now sober. This is what works best for me and how I live a happier life. Quitting alcohol was life-changing to the point I’ve decided to help those who are where I’ve been stuck for too long. I hope I'll help others to find their happy self and get clearer about alcohol in their life.
