I'm Andy, a highly experienced Addiction Therapist specialising in helping people overcome Cocaine and Alcohol Addiction.
Using proven, effective techniques from Therapy and Counselling,I can help you stop, simply and easily, and get your life back...fast.
What sets the service I offer aside - I am also a Recovery Coach, so I am confident in being able to help you. With thousands of hours treating Addiction, I understand what is causing your suffering.
I offer a free, no-obligation online video consultation so you can ask any questions you might have. I can explain exactly what is involved and allay any fears you might have such as dealing with cravings, panic attacks, and withdrawal.
From there, I will devise a treatment plan which is unique to you and this is how I get results- everyone has a unique reason why they use addictive substances, whether it is been a bad childhood, traumatic event or just living in today's "new normal".
Other Addictions I have a lot of experience in treating is Gambling, Food, and Nicotine, specifically Snus chewing tobacco and actually work with some well know professional football clubs helping their players come off Snus and online gambling.
When working with me.
Apart from helping you deal with your problem, whether it be Cocaine, Alcohol, or any other substance, I will also teach you how to deal with any cravings or panic-attacks. This is the first thing I address when we first meet. Imagine how easy it would be to stop for good if you knew how to could rid of cravings and anxiety in 90 seconds? I will show you how.
This seems to be the biggest barrier stopping people get over addiction - the fear of not being able to deal with it.
Everything is conducted under strict confidentiality.
To find out if I am the right professional for you, I offer a free Zoom consultation where you can discuss your current situation. I also offer evening consultations to save you having to take time off work or to help with organising child care. On the 20 minute call, I will explain how I can be of help and what exactly is involved in helping you get your life back.

The organisation kept putting me on training courses and I found myself gaining more qualifications and experience of working with people in the Mental Health field .At the time I was running my own chemical distribution company in Edinburgh and doing very well but I was not enjoying it ,especially compared to be-friending ! Gradually , I made the transition going from being a volunteer to starting my own therapy business and it has been one of best decisions I have ever made.
Why should our clients choose you?
Apart from my experience and qualifications , I used to suffer greatly with panic attacks , acute stress and then depression , so I know and can truly empathise with my clients .I also know what really works and what doesn't through personal experience . People who have never suffered from panic attacks or depression just don't understand just how disabling they can be and can effect anyone .I made it my work to find out how to really overcome acute stress and related conditions because I had to ..
