Personal Statement

I understand how shame and stigma can stop you from seeking help. As an 'expert by experience' with the appropriate clinical training, you will be supported in a flexible and thoughtful way. One size fits all approaches to addiction have produced fairly poor results. You have a unique set of circumstances, history and relationship with Cocaine. For you, even small changes can lead to big things and the first priority is to reduce harm and for us to build trusting relationship where we can explore and help you achieve your goals. While I use a number of techniques to assist in craving reduction, exploring motivation or addressing painful feelings, you can expect a jargon free, plain speaking and compassionate approach.
