I am, and have always been, a geek. In my personal life, I am a Geek Dad, a sci-fi geek, an amateur artist and lover of superhero movies. In my professional work I am a Counselling Therapist, specializing in Addiction Therapy. My work incorporates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Attachment Theory and of course, Geek Therapy! 

Geek Therapy is bringing whatever interests my clients into our counselling work, including: video games, comic books, superheroes, science fiction and other “geeky” things. This blog, Getting High on Recovery, is a dedicated to recovery, to learning about resilience and well being. The blog is a passion of mine and I use geek wherever I can.

This page is under development and over the next few months, this page will include links to articles on Geek Therapy. Until then, if you want to learn more about Geek Therapy, use the search box to look up specific topics that can include: superheroes, Geek Therapy, mental health and creativity, crayons, LEGO, Batman, Star Trek, Star Wars, Princess Leia, Yoda… and pretty much anything else you can think of.

I hope you like my blog. Whether or not you are a fellow geek, I welcome you to Getting High!

  1. This article really speaks to me. I too am quiet and whilst not a leader of people anymore (I was for many years), a leader of work (projects and such) but am often the most quiet in the room when surrounded by characters I haven’t figured out yet. In a one to one setting, I am quite the opposite. In a world that is always trying to make the introvert more extrovert in their ways, I genuinely believe that there should be more diversity in the work place for the quieter folk. Great read – thanks for sharing 🙂
