Sober Coaching is one of our ways to offer our clients even more practical, pragmatic and person centred learning tools to assist in their personal battle towards beating a debilitating habit or addiction.

A Sober Coach is someone trained and interested in promoting recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery by serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking, or in recovery.

“Coaching refers to the activity of a coach in developing the abilities of a client seeking sobriety (or a drug free lifestyle).
Coaching tends to focus on an existing problem (from which to move away) or a specific outcome that the individual wishes to achieve (move towards).”

Sober Coaching is where the actual healing of the client begins.

Sober Coaching is very effective short term and impacts upon the quality of the client’s lifestyle in the long term. It’s where the magic of recovery occurs.

Sober Coaching takes people through their own journey of self discovery and is highly effective for people with drinking and drug problems that don’t require a detox but do need some outside help learning how to stay sober permanently.

Miracles happen through Sober Coaching.
It’s the point where clients make serious and significant changes to their attitudes and behaviour.

The therapeutic process we utilise is individually arranged around our own previously proven model of recovery and it’s desired outcome is to specifically improve the quality of someone’s life whilst they remain alcohol and drug free.

Since all clients are unique, so we’ve designed our own Sober Coaching Workbook that allows everyone the opportunity to discover their own patterns and strategies for living, and replaces them with healthier, sober living ones.
We use this Sober Coaching Workbook with all of our Sober Coaching clients, because it’s been proven to be highly effective at creating permanent change and bring about recovery.

In face to face Sober Coaching sessions we can deal with all the specific situations and levels of crisis they may be encountering.

Sober Coaching can be delivered face to face or over a Webcam via Skype / FaceTime / Google HangOut over the Internet, or even telephonic as required.

Sessions typically last from between 45 and 90 minutes and can even be as frequent as once or twice per day. We wouldn’t recommend less than once per week.

For those that require a detox or residential service, we can make recommendations and arrangements for this, continuing with Sober Coaching upon the completion of their respite.

We’re convinced that Sober Coaching is a very suitable solution for those who are limited by free time, but yet are still serious about changing their behaviours.
