It's Complicated

Find a therapist that can help with Gaming addiction

Gaming disorder is defined as a pattern of gaming behavior, including digital-gaming or video-gaming, characterized by impaired control over the gaming. As with any addiction, gaming disorder is described as a clinical impulse control disorder, where increasing priority is given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities.

While the harm in addictions to substances is obvious in their physical symptoms, it is often less clear with a gaming addiction. The ways in which excessive gaming can negatively affect the life of the gamers, is by making them increasingly more withdrawn and isolated, foregoing work, school and other responsibilities to play. Just like with other addictions, therapy can help treat a gaming disorder.

About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.
