Why Choose Us? Counselling For Alcoholism & Addictions In Leeds
5 Reasons People In Leeds Choose Start Recovery For Alcohol Problems and Alcohol Counselling
If you live in Leeds and you require help to stop drinking alcohol then you have come to the right place. I have helped hundreds of Leeds residents stop drinking, and continue to help local people to quit drinking alcohol so they can move forward with their lives and start living, rather than merely existing. You may think you are an alcoholic, or you have been suffering from alcohol dependence issues. You may be experiencing alcohol withdrawal symptoms or you might be a concerned family member, looking for alcohol treatment for a loved one. Below are some of the reasons why local people from Leeds choose Start Recovery over, or with a combination of, other drug and alcohol services, AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) or rehab facilities.
I am based in North Leeds. Start Recovery’s treatment rooms are located in Adel, Leeds, LS16. Some other addiction treatment websites advertise that they have facilities in Leeds, when in fact they don’t and are acting as sales agents for other alcohol addiction treatment centres and rehabs which are not based in Leeds. To our knowledge, at this current time, the only residential drug and alcohol rehab and detox facility based in Leeds is St Annes community-based rehab…. Which is in Leeds, LS2 opposite one of the main Leeds University buildings.
I am a Leeds based alcohol addiction counsellor who is specifically trained in Alcohol and Substance Misuse Counselling. I don’t have a long list of other psychological disorders that I deal with. I specialise in addictions, dual diagnosis, and drug and alcohol problems only. I am a local, Leeds alcoholism specialist with a passion for helping people to stop drinking alcohol.
I am in recovery from alcohol problems myself, and proud of it. I have worked in some of the most challenging environments in some of the busiest areas in London, Leeds and North Yorkshire. Having been through treatment in myself in West London in 2012, I continued to work and train with drug and alcohol services, as a DIP (Drug Intervention Programme) worker in London. I then moved back to my home city of Leeds where I continued to work as an alcohol specialist in Yorkshire, whilst also studying alcohol and substance misuse counselling. I then worked in residential rehab and detox facilities and spent some time working on psychiatric wards working with people who had experienced alcohol or drug induced psychosis. I then set up Start Recovery in late 2015 to deliver a private service for people who were experiencing problems with drug addicton or alcoholism. I have two supervisors, one who helps me reflect on my alcoholism counselling techniques, whilst also supporting me with other any problems that may arise for me. Another supervisor keeps me up to date with the latest developments in different areas of multidisciplinary counselling, in particular utilising Nueroscience based and Neuropshycotherapy approaches. I am registered as a member of The Federation of Drug and Alcohol Practitioners (FDAP). Membership number 2315.
I will work with your addictions, whilst you are in your own natural Leeds based environment, developing a secure trust-based relationship with you, in order for you to move forward, and away from drinking alcohol, addiction and alcohol abuse.
Understandably due to the discreet nature of my addiction support, reviews of my services are limited to those who feel comfortable sharing. I am proud to say that there are a number of clients who have left positive reviews for my alcohol help and other addictions in Leeds.
I also have been able to share some anonymous reviews on my homepage.
