I have specialised training and experience of working with clients with alcohol and drug problems and family members. I also work in the wider addiction field with issues such as gambling, co-dependency and sex and love addiction. I also work with clients with eating disorders and family members.
I trained and worked for some years with clients with a chronic or terminal disability or illness, and family members.
I also supervise trainee counsellors, qualified practitioners - individual and group.
