My professional experience:
I have clinical and management experience within the NHS and private mental health settings for the last thirty years, initially as a psychiatric nurse then a psychotherapist specialising in addiction.
I have worked extensively on a dual diagnosis programme treating clients with mental health disorders and addiction within acute and community settings.
I am experienced in supporting clients with various psychological difficulties including substance abuse, mood difficulties, interpersonal issues and trauma. I provide relapse prevention along with short and long-term therapy.
My personal statement:
I am privileged as a therapist to support a client’s choices and curiosity around change. Working in the addiction field enables me to help a person find their authentic self through healing, personal growth and understanding.
“Remain humble and embrace all the possibilities recovery can bring”.
