- Do you feel it's impossible for you to resist cravings?
- Are you in two minds about giving up gambling or drinking? Maybe even a painful relationship? Although you know you are trapped by something destructive, you also feel that it helps you to cope.
- Do you feel alone and lost? You may be worried about the risk of damaging relationships if you talk to your partner, family or friends about your problem.
You are not alone - everyone goes through similar feelings at first.
Please don't lose heart. I believe I can help you past those blocks. I have walked this path with so very many people and can guide you on your steps towards life long recovery.
Most of my clients say they find the first step to seeking help very hard but feel relieved and positive after their first consultation with me.
Practicing since 2001, and learning from hundreds of people I have helped, I understand the particular pitfalls and patterns of recovery. I provide not only tried and tested therapeutic tools but vast experience of how recovery feels and what practical strategies really do work. There are strong themes and patterns to any and all addictions. I also believe strongly that there are individual reasons which trigger and perpetuate addiction. I work with each of my clients as an individual, helping them to create strategies and tweaks and changes to life that work for them.
I have built an excellent reputation for truly understanding addiction, providing an exceptional level of support, guidance and advice. My clients often speak of feeling I am very much on their side. Very many of my new client referals are from former clients whom I have helped. They send friends and family, and others they meet, to work with me. I feel that there is no greater honour than being given their trust and their belief that I will do my best for their friend or family member.
If you would like a 20 minute telephone conversation with me to help decide if I can help you do please contact me to arrange this. No fee will be charged for this first consultation.
The two books below are compilations by leading UK and international addiction experts to which I was honoured to be invited to contribute chapters. For details of my three books on gambling addiction in women, please see the page on this website, 'Specialist in Gambling in Women.'
