I am a Psychotherapist and a Behaviour Change Expert who specialises in Addiction and Relationships.
I work with Individuals of all ages, couples, families and groups to help them uncover their truth, to take ownership of the present and connect to their future self.
I’ve had a broad and rich experience of life so far as a former footballer of two Premier League clubs and an international DJ who featured on a seminal underground pirate radio station for 10 years. I was also an infamous graffiti writer and Teacher of Design & Technology too.
All of which gave birth to a spectrum of emotions as you can imagine where by the time I was in my mid 20’s, I was introduced to the concept of therapy through my own need for stability.
Back then I was lost, broken down and destitute. I was battling with addiction, toxic relationships and childhood trauma and suffered terribly with anxiety, panic attacks and depression. In desperate need of emotional, psychological and spiritual repair, I knew something needed to happen. And it did…
So fast forward to the present, I am now aged 46 where over the last 20 years a lot has changed because a lot had to. My journey of self-exploration has opened my eyes to worlds and communities where what I observed was so profound, that it literally changed my life overnight.
I came to understand the power of Thought and the role it plays in preserving my wellness. I realised that the deeper I looked within, the more conscious I became where consequently, the more obvious everything was!
This ‘understanding’ has been the bedrock of my life since and influences literally everything I do from parenting to exercising and the reason why I would like to now share it with you too…
Not only has it been a catalyst for me to leave the classroom (in the traditional sense), it has also been the incentive for me to train as a therapist and what has subsequently led me to establish my own private practice, Thought Based Therapy.
Today, I am someone who is inspired by honesty, freedom and choice and also, by creativity, expression and opportunity as it is these very elements in which my therapy is seeded.
My purpose is simple, to ‘give back’, as I believe that this is how we create a life, by what we can give so my work here at Recoverlution is my gift to you.
