Therapy Today magazine has published my journey to becoming a leading addiction recovery counsellor. My story is about my transformation from being an addict to helping addicts beat their own addictions, from gambling, alcohol, drugs, sex, and more.

I have written my autobiography ‘Nothing to Declare’ that dives into my past in much more detail, from London drug dealer/user to London addiction counsellor, which you can purchase here: http://markdempstercounselling.com/book/ I spent many years addicted to drugs, alcohol, and gambling; and eventually in and out of prisons. That experience makes my counselling practice today much more enriched, from the darkness into light. I know what it was like to steal to get money for drugs, I know how attractive a drink (and then 10 more) helps heal your emotional pain if just for a moment, I know how it feels to be powerless and out of control. If you are looking for help, please get in contact today. I can help you or point you in the right direction.
