Cheshire Wellness Centre founder Bob Baker knows all too well what it’s like to struggle with an addiction but have no idea where to turn to for help.
That’s why he’s proud to announce the opening of a revolutionary new addiction clinic at the centre, delivering an eight-week programme that incorporates several therapies to create a combined pathway to wellness.
Powered by personal experience
“I understand what it’s like to feel desperate and confused, not knowing where to turn or what help to ask for,” says Bob, who found himself suffering from anxiety, depression and alcohol addiction following a difficult period in his personal life. “It taught me that it doesn’t matter who you are, it can strike at any time.”
Bob’s experience also taught him that, whilst there are many different treatment options out there, few places exist that can take you on “your whole journey.”
The whole journey is now delivered by Bob’s clinic; helping clients resolve problematic drug or alcohol use by combining biopsychosocial interventions (i.e., those that consider biological, psychological and social factors) and addressing the underlining emotional cause using powerful Rapid Transformational Therapy®.
Resolving problematic drug or alcohol use
The first step in the programme is a consultation with addiction specialist John Wilkinson BSc, MSc, AP APM, who is registered with Addiction Professionals (the sector’s regulatory body).
John, who has spent over 24 years working in the drug and alcohol treatment sector, leads the programme and clients work with him throughout, exploring many areas, including substance specific, psychosocial education, harm minimisation, motivational enhancement, functional assessment, lifestyle change, relapse prevention and relationship support.
Together with John, clients will negotiate and implement psychological and practical solutions, thereby regaining control, managing cravings and building resilience.
“Our work will seek to empower those struggling to reclaim back their best life,” says John. “We work from a position that everybody can make and maintain changes to their relationship with alcohol and other drugs; learning how to independently manage this themselves.”
RTT® – addressing the root cause
A key part of the programme is Rapid Transformational Therapy® – a combination of the most beneficial aspects of hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and psychotherapy.
Most of our behaviours and habits are driven by the subconscious brain and RTT®’s power is in accessing the subconscious brain through regression, identifying the root cause of a client’s addiction issue and freeing them from difficult experiences and emotions.
As such, the results of the therapy – led by RTT® practitioner and medical consultant Dr Shyra Raj – can be rapid, highly effective and permanent.
“We address the root cause by eliminating it and reframing the negative belief into a more positive, empowering one,” explains Dr Raj. “It is my fundamental belief that everybody can sustain change, irrespective of how stuck or hopeless they may feel.”
Addressing both body and mind
The final piece of the dynamic treatment jigsaw is that of nutritional support. Led by nutritional therapist Dr Amanda Ellwood, this includes rebuilding nutritional deficiencies (supported by regular functional bloodwork) and the creation of a food and lifestyle programme ‘for life’, which covers many vital aspects, such as diet, sleep, exercise and stress management strategies.
All three strands come together to deliver a comprehensive and successful package; an all-together different programme that Bob himself wishes he’d had access to.
Achieve great things
Bob urges anyone dealing with addiction issues, or who has a loved one in need of support, to get in touch. Bob will be your first point of contact. Remember, he’s been there and offers the warmest welcome and guidance.
“Together, we can achieve great things,” smiles Bob. “Yes, it can be challenging, but you’ll be supported like a family member every step of the way.”
