Where do I start?
I have struggled with substance and behavioural addictions from my late teens until early 30’s. Over ten years in the absolute chaos, anguish and turmoil of addiction. Personal relationships destroyed; finances decimated; career in jeopardy, trouble with the law, were the consequences of my continued destructive behaviours. on August 1st 2012, I finally admitted defeat and was admitted to the Priory Hospital in Altrincham.
I can honestly say that my 28 day spell in residential treatment saved my life. I learnt that addiction was a disease, an illness, that left untreated, had the power to kill. It was not a lack of willpower or moral deficiency as I had previously thought. During my recovery, it struck me like a bolt of lightning, that I could use all my past pain and experience of addiction and help other people to recover.
In 2018, I obtained a First Class Honours Degree in Counselling and have recently acquired a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy. I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches such as: Person-Centred Therapy, CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming -NLP and Twelve Step Facilitation.
I believe that my past is my greatest assest.
It is my passion in life to help other people and if you are struggling with an addiction, it would be an honour and privilege to be of service to you. Don’t continue to be a slave to your addiction – there is an answer.
