Stefan Walters is a systemic therapist, specialising in addiction and relationship issues
Stefan has trained and practiced in both the USA and the UK, and spent four years as the Clinical Lead of a Recovery Service within NHS Brent, in North London. This involved managing a daily group Structured Day Programme for those in recovery, particularly for those needing aftercare following residential detox; supplying those in recovery with the tools and support to stay on track. Stefan also established an Open Group Programme for those entering into the early stages of recovery.
Stefan now works in private practice in central and north London, using an attachment-focused approach, with the understanding that those in recovery have an ongoing relationship with their substance of choice, and that it is vital to replace this relationship with a network of healthy connections, and to grieve the loss of the substance appropriately. If needed, Stefan can work with a couple, family, or group; approaching addiction as a complex systemic issue that impacts a number of individuals in many ways. Stefan also teaches Emotionally Focused Therapy workshops across the US, and frequently writes about the topics of therapy and addiction, having been published in numerous international publications, including The Guardian, The Sun, Esquire, The Sunday Times Magazine, Men's Health, The Huffington Post, and The Psychologist.
Stefan is registered with AAMFT and CAMFT in the US, and with the UKCP, BACP and BPS in the UK. He is a registered provider of psychological therapies with both Aviva and BUPA insurance in the UK.
