What is Recovery?

Recovery is a period of change. It is not the destination in itself but a process. Each individuals recovery is unique.

It comes from an awareness that living with addiction is no longer a place one wants to be.

Recovery is an active process of empowering one’s self, to thrive and live life to the full.

What is Recovery Coaching?

Recovery Coaching is a confidential, collaborative and professional relationship in which your recovery takes centre stage. We will work on your goals and what is important to you, for your life. It’s an opportunity for us to build a positive recovery relationship, based on trust. Together, we can develop your strategies, life skills and strengthen your resilience, so you can embrace the challenges and opportunities that life has to offer. My Recovery is an International Professional Addiction Recovery Coaching Service.

A Recovery Coach is there for you, whatever stage you are at within your journey. Are you contemplating stopping your addictive behaviour and need advice and support in the early stages? Are you feeling somewhat lost within your current stage of recovery? Are you in long term recovery and feel the need to introduce some positive recovery energy? Then Recovery Coaching is an empowering resource that could be perfect for you.
