Turn over a new leaf

Addiction therapist John McKeown, founder of Ibiza Calm residential rehabilitation centre, advises a reader on how to help her husband, who relies on alcohol too much

Addiction can have a devastating effect on your life, whether you are battling your own addiction or trying to cope with a loved one’s problem. A dependence on alcohol or prescription drugs, or an addiction to gambling or sex, and the psychological issues that come with it, can make you feel as if you will never find healing, strength or peace again. But, what if there was a path back to health and happiness?

Regain your freedom

John McKeown is clinical director at Ibiza Calm, a residential rehabilitation clinic that treats alcohol and drug addiction, and the psychological problems that they bring. He believes that, with help, it is possible to be happy, healthy and free again. McKeown trained in London as an addiction counsellor and clinical psychotherapist at Guy’s and St Thomas’s and King’s School of Medicine, and is registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy. He has worked in the addiction and mental health fields since 1987. McKeown was instrumental in setting up the first drug and alcohol rehabilitation projects in British prisons, and ran a private practice in London’s Harley Street, providing treatment for Premier League football players. He has also provided education programmes on addiction.

About Psychologies

This month, we’re urging you to ‘trust yourself’. Wonderful words but, not especially easy to put into practice. That’s why we’ve dedicated 18 pages in our dossier to discovering how to do exactly that – exploring everything from to how to turn up the volume of our inner wise woman, to looking at the latest research on making the best decisions. And it’s not what you think. Be inspired and get ready to move forward. Plus, how to reinvent your career and 10 of the best budget boltholes.
