Rebecca Fahey - Therapist
Rebecca Fahey
Therapist
From a young age I struggled with my mental health and body image. I always knew that I wanted to help people who felt similar to how I have felt. Whilst studying to become a counsellor I volunteered with Childline and a homeless charity.
I Qualified as an integrative counsellor in 2017, after qualifying I worked in a drugs and alcohol rehabilitation centre supporting them at the end of their treatment to gain housing, volunteering roles and support in the community. I then went to work in a secure locked rehabilitation centre supporting people with mental health disorders such as paranoid schizophrenia, drug induced psychosis, PTSD, personality disorder and eating disorders. I found that my passion was working with people with addiction. I believe that there is always a reason people turn to mind altering substances to help them cope with life and I believe that everybody should be given the chance to reach their full potential. I feel grateful to be a part of each one of my client's recovery journeys.

Julie Rigby - Recovery Coordinator Bio
Julie Rigby
Recovery Coordinator
From her early working life Julie has always thrived at helping others, she believes fiercely that no individual or family need to continue suffering, the pain of addiction.
After finally finding sobriety herself 10 years ago, she made a promise to help others, and show not only the addict, but the families also affected by someone else’s use, that recovery is possible and how to find and live in the solution of addiction. Julie believes strongly that a person-centred approach is the most valuable therapeutic help and having worked many roles within a Health & Social Care setting, with individuals from a wide range across the social spectrum, she believes that treatment and services need to be as diverse as the people and communities we serve. “A lot of my using was about changing the way I felt however having endured serious illness, loss and deep emotional pain whilst in recovery, I have come to learn that experiencing the joy, happiness and true peace of never having to use again, shows me how to live, facing life on life’s terms without the use of drugs and alcohol”
