Dip Social Science (Drug Dependence), NLP Practitioner and Diploma of Counselling
My journey with addiction began in 1968, when I became dependant at a young age. Later I became addicted to heroin for 12 years. I finally went into recovery in 1985. From then on, I have dedicated my life to working with addicts, alcoholics and their families. I began by studying with the Health Department Victoria completing an BACCUS (Basic Understaning of Substance Abuse) & CARE (Course in Assessment Referral and Education) course, then completed Victorian Counselling Course for Drug &Alcohol Worker at Victoria College, I further studied to become an NLP (Neuro Linguistics Programming) Practitioner, also completing Train the Trainer at the Council of Adult Education and finally a Graduate Diploma of Social Science (Drug Dependence) at Phillip Institute of Technology. I’m also recognised by Health & Community Services as a person of a ‘prescribed class’ to provide HIV counselling. After that, I held various positions in primary health care institutions in Victoria, Australia. I formed the Hader Clinic in Melbourne in 1997. Our mission at Seasons Bali is to help you rediscover the natural happiness within when a clear body and mind is allowed to manifest and expand fully. I have been enjoying mine since 1985, and I look forward to helping you rediscover yours.

Masters Degree of Social Health.
My experience spans four areas and five decades: management, hospitality, theatre and social health. Working in clinical practice, community development, management and sector development has taught me a number of things. That people are: strong, resourceful and resilient; they are more problem solvers than self destructive; and when given the right information delivered in a way they can understand people make decisions that are in their best interest.
Creating the space, understanding how others view us and expansive thinking are all valuable tools in engaging people in therapeutic communities and ensuring services remain true to the program and relevant for the people who join the program.
Living in Recovery for the past 25 years, I have studied (Master of Social Health) and worked as a counsellor, therapist and program manager. I bring together the skills essential in hospitality, theatre and social welfare to provide a broad range of knowledge and experience for clients to draw on.
I believe people need to have the very best experience and outcomes when they engage with us which is why I chose to bring my experience consulting to Seasons.
