Juliana is an accredited therapist with experience in addiction recovery work with a halfway house.
She conducts therapy sessions for affected persons and their loved ones whose lives are touched by the recovery process. She also facilitates recovery and relapse prevention support groups.
The treatment process typically starts with a pre-treatment assessment to accurately pinpoint the bio-psycho-socio factors that lead to the development, continuation and aggravation of the addiction problem. Juliana is able to tailor the recovery programme that aligns with the client’s readiness and stage of recovery. An effective recovery programme may entail medical intervention, individual and/or group therapy to address underlying factors and develop new life skills. Where appropriate, family members may be requested to participate in the affected person’s recovery process.
Prior to her transition into therapeutic work, Juliana has worked in the corporate sector for over 20 years in Asia, Australia and Europe.
