About me and my practice

For over 30 years I have been working and specialising with Personality Disorders ADHD both recreational drug/alcohol and prescription drug addictions self-harming suicidality, and all aspects of developmental trauma. My specialism within drug and substance dependency and related co-morbidities has centred on their role in emotion regulation and their role as a coping strategy. My work is focussed on ending the suffering that is the consequence of early life trauma and common addictive and destructive behaviours, - and this is my lifes work and passion. This focus also embraces diverse mental illnesses, both neuroses (anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc) and psychoses (schizophrenia, paranoid, bipolar disorder, etc).

Outline of offer

I work in person, and now also, - and increasingly, - online via Zoom conferencing, which has proven to be an effective and nurturing medium through which to progress this challenging work, supporting those struggling with early life trauma and substance dependencies ( I also conduct group training of professional practitioners peer-support workers, and volunteers in the field of trauma informed care and practice through my Company, Reset-21 CIC (
