BY OVERCOMING ADDICTION
Addiction Therapies Specialist
Dr Robin Shepherd has long specialised in the area of addictions.
Her background in private practise, in-house therapist and university lecturer has provided her a strong blend of academic research and practical application.
Dr Robin’s philosophy is to work together with the client to empower and co-create healthy alternatives to the addictive cycles.
Dr. Shepherd started her passion for addiction studies as a research fellow in 1989 at the Zinberg Centre for Addiction studies at Harvard University. Since then she has been active in research and
clinical work in mental health and addictions, including a seat on the editorial board for the Journal of Concurrent Disorders.
She graduated with a Ph.D. from the University of Surrey Roehampton (UK) which focuses on the self medication hypothesis.
A key issue with any PROBLEM GAMBLING concern, is that urge to chase your losses. Even high rollers are not immune to this chase.
