Robert BattMy role is to lead the organisation and to manage the direction and expansion of The Recovery Centre.

I believe passionately in the ethos of providing the best and most effective solution for the individuals who ask for our help, advice and experience. I helped to create and develop the concept of Customised Care and continue to pioneer new and innovative treatment programmes for our clients based on their unique goals and their individual circumstances.

I hold a Masters Degree in Addiction Psychology and have been practicing for more than 10 years. Since qualifying, I have studied Positive Psychology with Dr Tal Ben-Shahar (Positive Psychology lecturer at Harvard) and Philosophy with Dr Phil Joice at Oxford University.
