Interventionist

I have extensive knowledge of treatment options throughout Ireland, UK, Europe. this advice is part of my assessment and preparation process.

The best way of moving forward is by getting professional help through an interventionist.

It is a difficult time for all, this needs to be dealt with a caring, confidential and professional manner in order to move forward.
I would like to share some information with you about how my Intervention works. The time from an initial enquiry to treatment admission varies, but it can happen quite quickly.

The idea that the dependent person must hit rock bottom before they seek help is wrong. It is an old and outdated perspective. Interventionists have been proving this theory wrong for many years. The fact is that a trained Interventionist can work with a family and concerned persons in collaborating with a person to accept help. Many addicts die before they receive help. The fact is Interventions can bring about change before it is too late – life is too precious to sit back and just do nothing.
The person who is drinking/drugging/gambling/suffering with mental health challenges etc is suffering from such a powerful internal force (called addiction) and has lost control of their life. Therefore, they are not able and are unlikely to just stop. They need help. This process is based on love, care and does not in any way shame, blame or condemn a person at any point in this process. The person does not need punishing. They need supporting and loving into treatment.

The Process:
I am a trained and certified Interventionist with 29 years of personal recovery from addiction. In 1992 I began my recovery as an inpatient in a rehabilitation centre.  I have also worked with families in addiction/mental health for over 15 years.

An Intervention is when the person’s significant others (it could be family; friends or work colleagues) work with me in a coaching format and prepare to help the addicted/troubled person see their destructive behaviours and accept the treatment help that is on offer. This is a once off intervention meeting. The family are coached, trained, and prepared conducted on day one.  On day two we all  meet with the person suffering with addiction in order to begin a recovery path.

This process is a proven successful intervention model used for mental health struggles, addiction, and dysfunctional behavioural issues. I am a certified addiction counsellor having graduated from Trinity College in 2008.  I took a masters in mediation studies at Queens university in 2011.  I have been working in addiction/mediation for the past 15 years. 

I am very experienced in this process and will guide all of you i.e., the addict and persons affected by addictive behaviour through the process.

 For treatment, the rehab/treatment centre will either be paid by the client directly or through medical insurance accepted at many centres. I earn no commission from any clinic/doctor/service that I recommend. As part of my service I will advise you on your options.
