The team at Steps2Recovery is close-knit and passionate about abstinence-based, 12 Step recovery and we work to ensure that our clients, who often come to us directly from prison, are met with warmth and compassion.
The counselling team members are all highly qualified, recovery-focused therapists and are lead by William Ogden who has a long-established and highly successful track record of working with vulnerable people. The team delivers group therapy and 1:1 counselling – their own lived experience informs the ways in which they work with our clients.
Our trustees, all in recovery themselves, are a supportive group who bring a range of skills to the organisation and, without exception, play an active part in the running and development of Steps2Recovery.
We have come a long way since we launched a counselling service for people exiting the Criminal Justice System back in 2010 and many of the Steps team have been there from the beginning.
