Veronica has worked as a therapist specializing in addiction for over 10 years; her experience includes working with young people in the criminal justice system, primary care adult treatment, outreach services and in private practice. Veronica has also worked in local government (in the UK) delivering the local drug and alcohol strategy.
As a recovered alcoholic and drug addict she has personal experience of what it takes to recover from an addiction. Veronica struggled with alcoholism through most of her twenties, as a binge drinker she was aware for some time that something was wrong but was unable to define what it was, a chance meeting led to her finally getting help and turning her life around. In the height of addiction Veronica was unable to go to work without the aid of a drink, although never a daily drinker her life and confidence were in tatters. She now uses this experience to help and inspire others, she fully believes that all alcoholics and addicts can recover if they have access to the right kind of help they can then go on to live 100% lives free from addiction. Veronica is committed to educating and informing the public on problem drinking and addiction.
