About me and my therapy practice
I have been in recovery for many years and I specialize in the field of addiction. I work with addicts and their families to help them not only understand the disease of addiction, but to help unpack the thoughts feelings and emotions they are suffering with.
I understand from my own experience the guilt, shame, resentment and fear that both addicts and their families suffer with on a daily basis, that’s underpinned by trauma and how this affects relationships with family, partners, children and friends, often leading to isolation with nowhere to turn.
I use person centered psychotherapeutic skills integrated with aspects of the 12 step program of recovery, mindfulness and coaching techniques to help clients unpack their emotional world in a safe, non judgmental environment and to help build a program to live life on life’s terms.
I have worked with addicts both in the private rehabilitation sector, and through 12 step sponsorship with addictions ranging from:
All Illicit substances
Many of my clients have suffered deep trauma in their life that perpetuates their addiction such as:
Dysfunctional family environments
Children of alcoholics/addicts
Loss of identity
My aim is to create a safe space for people to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions in an environment based on trust.
I work collaboratively with clients to unpack their past experiences and the beliefs attached to them that have conditioned the way they view themselves, the world around them and the people in it. I offer my clients a new perspective, as we often get stuck thinking about situations from a single view point that causes us pain. This dictates how we think and feel, which in turn manifests our reality as thoughts become things.
Working in the private residential rehabilitation sector, I come across clients from all walks of life, with a wide range of issues that are underpinned by trauma. I believe that getting to the route cause of a persons pain and giving them a space to explore their emotions is where clients truly find freedom and peace.
