About me

Are you looking for a therapist who has been in your shoes? Someone who has felt the pain and anguish of addiction? Someone who won't judge and has the tools to help you recover from your own alcohol, drug, gambling or sex addiction?

Addiction does not discriminate; it affects people from all walks of life. If you or a loved one has struggled with a substance or behavioural addiction you will be fully aware of the devastation it causes throughout the family. Drink, drugs, gambling and sex (to name a few) all have the potential to take hold of our lives and down into a pit of despair. As a recovered addict, I have been in your shoes and found a way out. I believe this experience enables me to develop strong therapeutic relationships and really connect with clients on an empathic level. I specialise in the treatment of substance and behavioural addictions.

Due to my past experience of addiction, I believe that it's my calling to become a therapist and help others from darkness into light. I am a passionate and hardworking individual and urge anyone suffering to contact me and start their journey to freedom.

Additionally, I work with adolescents/young adults who present with a range of anxiety and emotional difficulties. Being trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, I provide a range of proven therapeutic techniques to help the individual overcome and manage their anxiety. A comprehensive assessment will be conducted with a treatment plan tailored to the needs of the client. CBT has proven effectiveness at treating these disorders and with my knowledge of CBT, I believe I can help. I offer a safe, caring and non-judgmental environment for an individual to explore and confront their issues. I am fully aware of the expense of therapy and continually strive to enhance and improve my practice with the ultimate aim of improving clients well-being.
