Francis Lickerish

Family Therapist, Addiction Specialist

My professional qualifications, accreditations and memberships:

PGCert. Sheffield.

PGDip. Kings London.

CAC – Certified Application Counsellor

I have trained in group work at Cambridge and at the Tavistock Clinic in London.

I am currently working on a Phd.

My professional experience:

I have been an addiction counsellor for over 20 years. I specialise in working with families in addiction. I have run family programmes and services in Clouds House, The Priory Roehampton, North London Priory, Farm Place and Nightingale Hospital London. I run workshops in schools and colleges on the nature of addiction and how it can be managed in such systems. I also work internationally in America, South Africa, Dubai and Spain as a consultant and an interventionist.

My personal statement:

I focus on the impact addiction has on the whole family system. I see addiction as a systemic condition that has its roots in society and history. I am in the process of writing a book on the historical and social context of addiction.

Additional information about my research, publications and interests:

I am concerned about the lack of really effective family work and also the lack of general education and understanding of the addictive process.
