Addiction and alcoholism have been part of my life since I was a child. I come from a family where alcoholism and addiction play a huge part and have caused a lot pain in mine and my family’s life. I have suffered in active addiction for nearly 16 years – 10 of which were very chaotic.
I have been in recovery now for over 24 years and I have worked in the field of recovery, mostly the 12-step programme, for over 22 years. I believe in the 12-step approach and so my personal experience and the extensive years of working as an Addiction Therapist informs how I work.
Being an Addictions Therapist is at the heart of who I am as a person. I feel privileged to be able to deliver an evidence-based service to all the patients and families I work with, meeting them at what is often the most difficult and vulnerable times in their lives.
As a committed team we offer a safe, supportive and compassionate programme of recovery to guide patients and their families back to a happy and fulfilling life, free of the chains of addiction.
