Welcome. I am so grateful that our paths have crossed and look forward to sharing our journeys together.
My name is Jim Villamor. I am currently living in Sydney Australia which has been my home for the past 15 years .
I help people manage change through compassion, understanding and guidance to create the life they deserve to live.
I am an addictions specialist working as a Counsellor, Life Coach, Hypnotherapist and Consultant within businesses, not for profit charities, hospitals and privately in the United States, Singapore and Australia.
For the past 15 years I have worked to lift the stigma of addiction within communities, agencies, businesses and government bodies to help provide awareness, additional service options and education. This means I bring a depth of experience to understanding my clients and providing a service that is sensitive to your needs.
Over this time I have come to respect the differing and unique ways that people make sense of their experience and the problems that worry them. People tell stories about themselves, their struggles, challenges, triumphs and experiences, whether it is in the grand scheme of their lives or the little day-to-day moments
If you are experiencing problematic behaviours associated with any kind of addiction or have a loved one who is suffering from addictions it may help to talk with a counsellor.
Through my own personal experiences and training I aim to help you manage better through challenges, life’s crises, losses and upheavals. Our search will usually include a better understanding of your thoughts and beliefs around a substance or any other kind of addiction including food, gambling, internet, porn, shopping, sex and address the consequences of those beliefs so you can begin making better choices for a more positive and fulfilling
I have worked extensively with clients and their loved ones with any form of addiction including gambling, alcohol, stimulants, cigarettes, food, shopping, sex and gambling. I am deeply aware of the impact addiction has on the home and in relationships for the family and carer’s. My services offer to help you in times of need with the understanding there is often feelings of shame and guilt with very little support to guide you through difficult times.
Relax, sit back and enjoy life’s little road map through love and loss, fear and disappointment, joy and sorrow, aging, self love and acceptance and the beauty of relationships.
