I have wide ranging experience as a Counsellor & Therapist treating addiction problems . I am a Specialist in the field of Addictions and the problems that alcohol, drugs or gambling cause to the individual and their families and partners. I treat both the person with the addiction and those close by who are affected by it. I also have an extensive background in treating depression, anxiety, stress, anger management and relationship, motivational and retirement problems.
I received my MSc (Master of Science) in Addiction Psychology & Counselling from Greenwich University. For the past 16 years I have devised and run the Addictions Unit (alcohol/drugs/gambling) at a major London private Hospital, treating NHS and private patients, facilitating addiction groups and individual sessions. I spent 2 years working in Harley Street with a group of Consultant Psychiatrists treating addictions for alcohol, drugs and gambling and general mental health issues and have managed my own Private Practice for the past 17 years.
I took a sabbatical and worked for 6 months at a prominent Californian Treatment Centre in the USA, treating clients with addictions and general mental health problems. Whilst there I studied various treatment approaches to form a therapy that would have the most chance of successful outcomes in regard to addiction to alcohol, drugs and gambling.
I am a practised Lecturer and Presenter and have given presentations both in the UK and USA to Mental Health Professionals and Doctors on Addiction to Alcohol and Drugs and Problem Gambling. I have worked closely with many Consultant Psychiatrists. During my 18 years of hospital and private practice I have treated countless people people from all classes and backgrounds – from teenagers to the retired – from NHS patients to sports stars and entertainment celebrities to heads of commerce.
