    Areas of Expertise

    Addiction, recovery and its effects on families and children.
    Adults, children and young people living in families affected by addiction can suffer from unrecognised emotional and psychological scars which affect how they view and experience themselves, relationships and the world around them. As all the focus is often on helping the person suffering from addiction, people living with its effects can often be overlooked. I feel passionate about the need for them to access therapeutic support so that the far reaching effects of living with such an experience can be undone.
