Sherwood Counselling Practice and Addictions Treatment Consultancy
Having worked therapeutically within the three leading mental health and addiction treatment agencies in the UK, I have been able to draw on these experiences and create a successful and
professional practice and consultancy within the community and corporate sectors.
My work is diverse and allows me to provide counselling, therapy, personal development and training to adults via an individual or group work process.
Addictions Treatment Consultancy
Addiction related illness is a growing global epidemic requiring skilful therapeutic interventions for those experiencing a serious life threatening and complex psychological illness. However, recovery is achievable.
Addiction related illness is widely reported to be a major cause of work absenteeism, low employee performance and criminality both in the workplace and community settings. I have substantial experience of working with individuals experiencing this illness in both these areas.
I provide corporate clients with advice and guidance on a treatment plan tailored to meet the requirement of both the employer and employee.
I provide face to face counselling, group therapy, relapse prevention therapy,education and lectures to both management and other staff on the subject of addiction.
My practice is based not only upon qualification, but also from many years experience of specialising in addiction.
Unfortunately addiction not only affects the person experiencing the illness but also engulfs those closest to them.
The abusive and destructive behaviours of the alcoholic/addict manifests itself within the family unit and generates an ongoing experience of chaos and distress and usually the addict remains oblivious to this.
Family therapy is a support mechanism for the loved one/s of the person suffering the illness of addiction. It is a process designed to enable the loved one/s to detach from the negative behaviours of the addict, live their own lives but at the same time apply a more creative and beneficial way of helping.
Family therapy sessions can take place as a group process or on a one to one basis. The addict can attend the one to one sessions if necessary and only with the consent of the family member.
Family therapy is an important part of the addiction recovery process.
