trauma and addiction recovery

“I help people transform the challenge of living with trauma and addiction recovery into confidence, strength and peace of mind”.

My Counselling and Coaching Service is for anyone facing the challenge of living (and loving) with trauma or post-traumatic stress. Although the trauma may be from years before, recovery continues throughout one’s life. With over 20 years in the trauma and addiction field I offer a solid framework to process the effects of trauma, including a focus on spiritual and emotional balance, the inner child, detoxification of shameful feelings and practical help in the following areas:

  • Addiction (process and substance recovery)
  • Sex and love recovery
  • Intimacy issues
  • Panic attacks
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Self-destructive behaviours
  • Unhealthy relationship patterns
  • Indecision and confusion

As an active member of the recovery scene I share personal experience, along with the insight and healing I’ve gained from many intense trauma recovery programmes both in the UK and the USA, including the Survivors programme developed by Pia Mellody at The Meadows, AZ, (adopted by the Priory Hospital in the UK), along with other progressive trauma models provided through Onsite Workshops, TN.

Facing trauma in this way I have walked through the fire and come through it, stronger and more compassionate, with self-respect and self-love. I help my clients do the same…

A brilliant start to the month this morning. In between putting the finishing touches to my book cover, Dragon King's Daughter, I met my Buddhist friend and fellow SGI-UK member Sue Thornton.

Up at 2.30am to drive down to the coast to catch sunrise for a photoshoot. Skies were magnificent and the tide was high. And this friendly sea creature was there to welcome us, playing in the water for a good 20 minutes while we worked. According to the shamans, seals are symbolic of sex and love. There couldn't have been [...]
