About meI am a therapist and coach specialising in addiction, as well as helping clients develop better mental health and wellbeing.

I am the author of "The Recovery Formula" and the award-winning "The Happy Addict". "Instant Wisdom: 10 Easy Ways to Get Smart Fast" is my latest book. It became an Amazon No. 1 bestseller in October 2018. I have also published a mini ebook "What Is Self Esteem?".

I like to read books that cover the field I work in and in my spare time I like nothing better than to read a bit of Beckett or Camus. I am a Buddhist too, so I like to dip into the teachings regularly.


Favorite authorsSamuel Beckett, Beth Burgess, Albert Camus, Mervyn Peake (Shared favorites)
