Through a range of approaches and services, I offer support and treatment for people suffering from many forms of substance misuse and mental health issues. Coming to terms with issues and seeking help can be difficult, people might often feel alone and isolated. I always aim to provide the individual with a high quality service, which is evidenced base and delivered with a high level of compassion.
