About me

My training, experience and professional development have allowed me to develop a new approach for the attainment of behaviour change that works both for individuals and systems. This approach is called Diction Resolution Therapy (DRT)

DRT restores the word 'addiction' to a healthy place within a problem solving pathway, thus releasing new energy and willpower to actualise and harmonise new pathways through old problems.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have extensive experience of counselling people toward behaviour change within addictive situations. I have developed a new treatment approach to behaviour change that is called Diction Resolution Therapy (DRT)

I see addiction as a primary disease with many forms that are all related. There are many symptoms of disturbance for people and systems that are in fact linked to addiction.

My work helps identify whether a presenting symptom might be linked to a form of addiction and if so to then to help with a new approach to unlocking stuck situations.

I am a Clinical Trauma Professional certified by Evergreen, certificate number 390518.

In these times of global pandemic, the powerlessness and unmanageability that people can experience often then produces emotions of anxiety and depression. DRT is applied in a bespoke manner to contradict the inner self-talk that can be so collapsing for people and for systems.

The paradox is that out of a chaotic and frightening inner situation, there can arise a healing and reconnection that make sense out of whatever your situation may be telling you to the contrary.

Trauma can be healed.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
