Objectives

Since 2003, John has been working professionally within the Substance Misuse Field in the United Kingdom. Initially, he specialised working with young people and then went on to working with adult substance misusers. John has evidenced that there is a real need and a niche in the market for a service like his that will provide training to individuals that in turn will afford them more confidence in dealing with a client, family member or friend in front of them that may be indulging in substance misuse.

John's seminars are aimed at students, parent evenings, teachers, youth workers, social workers, job centre staff, law enforcement officers - anyone involved in working with people with substance misuse issues.

One of John’s fortes is providing passionately driven motivational speaking engagements with an uplifting and positive slant oriented towards his target audience. He also specializes in the delivery of teaching seminars to young people, adults, or any professionals who work directly or indirectly with substance misusers. The information that John utilizes for his presentations is evidentiary based and collated material from the UK and other parts of the world.

John believes that having an academic foundational comprehension where substance misuse is concerned is essential to developing into a good practitioner. He also believes, just as passionately, that having an experiential side allows a practitioner to be able to empathize on a more in-depth level, and as a result the client is willing to engage on a deeper level. John has evidenced in his work practice that a vast majority of clients would rather engage with a practitioner who has walked 'in their shoes', and yet was able to make it through and survive the storms of addiction, going on to a more productive and fruitful life.

In our current economic times, a clear advantage of engaging John’s services is that each of the teaching seminars and motivational speaking engagements is brought directly to your specified location, where he will address your audience. This will provide great savings to companies, organisations, charities and corporations who will not have to provide expenses for employees for travel, accommodation or food .
