I’m very pleased to announce that I have expanded my counselling and coaching practice to embrace the theme of recovery in general. To me recovery means healing from psychological distress and injury, and although it certainly includes addiction, is not limited to it. Over the years my work with folks in recovery from addiction has shown me that emotional healing is 9/10ths of the journey. Commonly, recovery focuses on overcoming stress, anxiety, depression, low self worth, grief and loss and abuse and trauma. Addiction is one manifestation of an attempt to find a ‘solution’ to these problems, but then addiction becomes an additional problem in itself. As I expand the scope of my work, I look forward to taking my vision forward, so I can have the opportunity to serve in a more complete, comprehensive and fulfilling way.
