Addictions

   

What help is available?

I offer treatment for a wide range of addictive issues, including alcohol and drug addiction, gambling, sex addiction, as well as self-harm and other forms of addictions and compulsions. I have over 15 years of experience of working with addicts, including several years within the criminal justice system. I was a drug treatment manager at one of the women's prisons in England in 2004-06, and have developed and facilitated a number drug/alcohol rehabilitation projects over the years.

Appointments are available at my clinics in Glossop, High Peak (Derbyshire) or in Mossley (Lancashire) - both venues are around 30 minutes drive or a train ride from the centre of Manchester. Online and telephone consultations may be available subject to suitability - please enquire.
