What I Do...

I'm an alcohol coach & consultant.

 

I can teach you how to change your drinking to a healthier drinking pattern or stop drinking (even for a while) 

This is done through a process called

"Solution Focused Harm Reduction" 

Solution-focused treatment means

Focusing on getting things under control and manageable. Working on helping your family understand what this process is.

 

Alcohol Harm Reduction means

"Being able to drink how you want without harming yourself or anyone around you" 

Most of my clients are women who can't or don't want to stop drinking for a variety of reasons. They have usually tried to slow down or stop drinking but hare often unsuccessful.

 

I developed this service for women who are having difficulties with alcohol and/or mental health and are looking for support to change their habits or get their lives back to how they felt before things started going wrong. 

 

I do this by using a combination of my own researched, tried and tested methods 

and I have added other successful approaches called Smart Recovery, Harm Reduction, Dual Diagnosis.

 

I believe women who drink to excess do so due to emotional reasons and not because they want to be difficult of a nuisance to their family, thus once a woman gets the support and treatment she needs or wants her drinking is more comfortable to manage.

How it works...

Dual Diagnosis; According to figures from the American Medical Association, up to 37% of people who abuse alcohol and 53% of people who abuse drugs also have at least one serious mental illness, and 29% of people diagnosed as mentally ill abuse either alcohol or drugs. A study by the UK Dept. of Health put the figures even higher, suggesting that 75% of users of drug services and 85% of users of alcohol services experienced mental health problems. 44% of mental health service users reported drug use. (Weaver et al., 2002)

 

Harm Reduction; For those who can’t/won't stop drinking then a safer drinking plan is put in place, so their drinking doesn’t harm them or anyone around them. An alcohol harm reduction strategy seeks pragmatic solutions to the harms that alcohol and alcohol policies cause. It has been said that alcohol harm reduction is not what's nice, it's what works. A harm reduction approach acknowledges that there is no ultimate solution to the problem of A.U.D (alcohol use disorder) in a free society and that many different interventions may work. Those interventions should be based on science, compassion, health and human rights.

 

Bio/Psycho/Social/Spiritual; Working on the complex interaction between the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual. From eating well, women's health (pregnancy, menopause etc..) managing mood and mental health, interacting socially with family, friends and work with positive results and grow, to meditation and mindfulness. Thus giving a holistic all-round approach to living well instead of “getting sober.”
