Hello and Welcome to Wendy Revell - The Serenity Practice


Wendy provides insight into the nature of addiction. This is like a road map which allows navigation through life for people affected by addiction.

This is provided through:

- Group facilitation for friends/families. Individual counselling.

- Training for professionals.

Wendy can help you to gain insight into the problem and can provide valuable tools to deal with the effects of addiction. These effects are evident as dysfunctional dynamics at work and home.

Addiction is present when choice is lacking.                           Life becomes unbalanced.

One area gains a heavy focus to the detriment of other areas.

This focus can include: alcohol, drugs, gambling, work, exercise, internet, gaming, sex or codependency (focus on others).

Wendy approaches these issues with knowledge, experience and compassion.
