“My unique position gains instant rapport and trust from the clients I work with. This establishes quickly a strong base for clients to build on. Also it eradicates client resistance to interventions enabling them to participate willingly in the process of change leading to a better way of life. Crystallizing my experience in client work I am able to explain my approach and transfer my strategies to anyone concerned with offending and substance misuse.” –
