For professionals, with professionals 


Pivotal Recovery is a not-for-profit, community interest company, ideal for professionals referring their patients and clients.

Such referrers include psychiatrists, GPs, psychotherapists and counsellors in private practice, Relate centres, faith and community-based support organisations, solicitors, the probation service, and a wide range of voluntary and statutory agencies.

Our professionally guided course consists of 60 podcasts and a workbook. Anyone with an internet-enabled device can take part.

The course provides a psycho-educational framework for understanding addictive/compulsive behaviours from a bio-psycho-social perspective. But its strength is in its ability to help the public understand and apply its powerful psycho-dynamic insights.

Based on 30 years of clinical experience, the course is trauma-informed and primarily uses CBT and ACT theories and strategies. Outcome measures and efficacy trials are ongoing, and results can be viewed here (coming soon).
