The NADA Protocol works by mobilising the existing internal resources of a person. As a NADA practitioner, opening access to the treatment itself comes first, which i support fully within my clinic in Alcester, Warwickshire.

I believe in a patient-centred approach to treatment and therapy where communication, privacy, comfort, continuity of care, hands-on treatment, quality of treatment and facilities is the way to a quality service for patients in my care.

My first experience of the NADA protocol was in 1992 when I came into recovery for my own substance misuse issues. I have never forgotten how powerful the protocol was in helping me manage my anxiety and withdrawal symptoms.

I have now been working in the field of addictions, mental health and complementary therapies for over 20 years and have 16 years’ experience as a practitioner and 5 as a teacher of the NADA protocol. It never ceases to amaze me how this simple, effective, non-verbal treatment, crosses barriers that the spoken word cannot, being ideal for those who have suffered trauma, loss  or addiction.
