I am experienced in working with a variety of presenting difficulties including addictions. My addiction experience is broad, ranging from community based services to residential rehabilitation services. I have worked with both men and women at different stages of recovery from alcohol misuse, prescription drugs and elicit substances. I have also provided counselling to carers and family who have been affected by their loved ones addiction.
I have worked with individuals on all aspects of recovery and have an in depth understanding of mental health conditions and how these can impact on day to day life, from confidence and feeling isolated to completing activities of daily living and managing unpleasant and unwanted thoughts and feelings. My experience has shown me that people's difficulties impact and affect them in many different ways. Therefore you will always be treated as an individual with many facets rather than a diagnosis.
I have experience of providing both time limited (6 sessions) and open ended therapy.
