Speaker: Rochelle Craig

I work with all addictions with a special interest in food addiction / overeating / obesity. My journey to becoming qualified and working in this area began as a result of my own suffering from addiction and ultimately getting into recovery. Today I feel privileged to be working in this particular field sharing my experience, strength, optimism and professional knowledge in the unwavering hope that all my clients will walk free from the chains of addiction.

My basic technique is The Minnesota Method. This method is fundamental in the treatment of addiction. It is a holistic approach dealing with the mental, physical, emotional and spritual aspect of addiction. It has a basis in the 12-step model which stresses abstinence, group therapy, cognitive and behavioural change and accepting and giving support to others in the same situation.
