To become a Recovery Coach and Sober Companion I first had to understand how to ‘live’ and enjoy life without dependency on alcohol and drugs. Seeing the world through a new lens is something I want to be able to give my clients and support them on their journey to recovery.
I’ve experienced the darkness of drug and alcohol addiction and I am now experiencing the freedom from active addiction, one day at a time. I know first-hand how difficult it can be to escape the cycle of addiction, but also how hard it is to build and maintain a recovery lifestyle. Aside from working as a Recovery Coach I also volunteer supporting addicts in early recovery at an outpatient rehabilitation centre in London and dedicate time to doing service in the recovery community. Being in recovery has given me the opportunity to further my education and I am currently studying for a BSc (Honours) Degree in Psychology and Counselling. I am passionate about, and devoted to, encouraging, supporting and motivating others to make positive sustainable changes in their life without dependency on alcohol and/or drugs.
I understand that every individual and their situation is unique and I offer a compassionate, empathic and non-judgemental service that is discrete and confidential. Whatever your circumstances are, we will work together to help you become the person you want to be.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ in recovery. Together let’s find a recovery plan and support structure that works for you.
