About me

I'm a qualified Psychotherapist with a specialist knowledge and experience in addiction. I will provide a safe place for you to go on a non judgemental journey of self-exploration. The first therapy session is a good time to see if I can help you and if you would like to work with me. This is also a chance to begin building on a trusting therapeutic relationship which is a important part of the therapy process.

Over the years I have  worked overseas in treatment centre's In Asia facilitating lectures in drug addition and working in group therapy with clients recovering from various addictions. I will help anyone who wants to help themselves recover from addiction. I'm a person centred compassionate therapist who know's that change is not easy. However the way I work I will support you In motivating you to find the courage to change and find purpose away from the misery of addiction..

Some of the work I do involves schema therapy and relapse prevention which involves exploring negative thought patterns that can inhibit you from moving on in your recovery.
I like to see clients for at least six sessions with a review at the 5th session to assess the therapy process and to see if therapy is helping.

Training, qualifications & experience

*Diploma in Integrative Counselling

*Certificate in facilitating therapeutic groups

*Diploma Level 3 health social care

*Certificate  in substance abuse and addiction

*Certificates in Gestalt therapy work shops.

I'm committed to my own ongoing Personal & Professional development with 18 years experience in the field of addiction. l believe if you can change the way you think you can change the way you feel.
I have a lot of life experience of life's twist and turns working through my own grief and bearvement over the years. l know the courage it takes to keep going so that you can continue to have a life worth living. People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons and I think the benefits of coming to therapy can help you
overcome some of the difficulties you may experience in life.
I have diverse knowledge and experience of working in mental health, government programmes and working in the private sector in residential treatment centres and detoxification clinics as a Psychotherapist. I think coming to therapy can help you to come out of the silence of suffering alone and find the courage to reach out for help. I want to be there for you when you make that decision. I want to facilitate you in finding purpose away from the misery of addiction.
