Graham Peasey

Since turning his life around, Graham has become an expert in the field of recovery; a highly regarded therapist and counsellor; a strong believer in the guiding principles of the 12 step programme, Graham has combined these principles in conjunction with traditional psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy.
