Richard Smith

program director and clinical head

 

Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), Graduate Diploma Social Science (Drug Dependence)

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 1984. From then on, I have dedicated my life to working with addicts, alcoholics and their families. I began by gaining a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), and a Graduate Diploma in Social Science (Drug Dependence). 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 1984, and I look forward to helping you rediscover yours.

Bachelor of Business Administration

I have been with Seasons Bali since day one as Manager of Operations. My management experience, business management training and organisational skills have helped the program and the company grow and develop into the success it is today. I completed my Bachelor degree in Business Administration in 2010 and am currently completing his MBA. I also manage a charity organisation called Yayasan Gunung Pahlengkong, which focuses on conservation, recycling and education in the North West region of Bali. My mission is to maintain our ISO9001 status as an organisation and keep Seasons Bali running fluidly so you can be free to focus exclusively on the powerful work of recovery.

Rachael Smith

client Liaison manager

Diploma Alcohol and Other Drugs; Diploma of Mental Health, Diploma of Counselling, Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Counselling, Cert IV Assessment and Training

After struggling with addiction to alcohol and cannabis from the age of 14, I remained an addict for over two decades culminating in a traumatic period of amphetamine use. After entering recovery for the first time, I began a period of education and training, during which I completed several qualifications. Also, I worked at Hader Clinic in Melbourne as a Senior Support Worker, at Winja Ulupna Aboriginal Women’s Rehab in St Kilda and many other places over many years. As the Client Liaison Manager at Seasons Bali, I am the first point of contact for new clients and families. My mission is to make the admission process and the time that follows simple and rewarding for the extraordinary people that walk through the doors here.

Dr Monika Joy reverger, Sp. KJ

Consultant psychiatrist

Master of Medicine (Psychiatry) 

My interest in addictions and mental health began in 2012. Since then I have helped so many people to find some relief from their troubles.  I work in several private hospitals in Bali as a Psychiatric consultant. It is incredible to see the difference in people after they get proper help. I heard about what Seasons Bali were doing across my time in various hospitals. It was only when I realised how different their model is to regular rehab institutes that I contacted Richard with my intent to join the team. My mission at Seasons is to make sure that people receive the highest level of psychiatric care possible. 

Marina kolaric

Counsellor and recovery coach

BA (Psychology), Masters in Communications 

I specialise in alternative approaches to health, spirituality and life in general. Originally from Serbia, I have spent my life travelling the globe earning various certifications and collecting valuable life experience. I have a BA in Psychology from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, and my MA in Communications from the University of Hawaii, Honolulu. I have trained in conflict resolution and mediation, yoga and meditation, and I completed a two-year program for Ayurvedic counselling. Additionally, I have been trained in Mindfulness-Based Addiction Recovery (MBAR), the approach I use mostly in my work. I believe there is no one perfect solution for all of us, and we might want to choose a strategy that works for us individually.

co-ordinator

Certified HIV Counsellor, Certified Drug Addictions Counsellor

I got into recovery in 2005. Since then, I have dedicated myself to help people to find a new way of life for themselves and their families. I have worked with the Seasons team since 2012. Starting as a Counsellor, I have gradually won promotion to my current position as Program Coordinator. Before Seasons Bali, I worked extensively within the field of counselling for many years, including three years at a HIV foundation funded by the Australian government. My mission at Seasons is to ensure that the needs of our clients are not just being met, but are exceeded. As a former addict and counsellor myself, I understand both sides of the recovery relationship, and so I am exceedingly qualified to oversee the process.

Dr Yasmin Halim

Recovery Doctor

Medical Degree in Neuroscience

I have always been fascinated by how minor changes in brain chemistry can affect significant changes in our client’s lives. For this reason, became interested in neuroscience from an early age and was fortunate enough to get into Hasanussin University, one of South East Asia’s most respected medical Universities. After University, I continued to gain qualifications in emergency medicine and withdrawal management. My path eventually led me to Seasons Bali, where I am the recovery Doctor for our clients. My mission is to ensure that every single client at Seasons Bali is given the highest possible level of medical care during their time here.

Amanda Williams

Wellness coordinator

Hypnotherapy, NLP Practitioner, THETA Trauma Therapist, Ayurvedic Nutritionist, Personal Trainer and Yoga Instructor 

As a former professional dancer, I have always inspired my students to discover their journey and awaken their spiritual energy through the practice of yoga, breathwork, exercise and meditation. Over the last 14 years, I have trained extensively with internationally acclaimed yoga teachers in branches such as Power Yoga, Iyengar, Hatha and Vinyasa Flow as well as Reiki and Theta healing. My mission is to assist each client’s in freeing their limiting belief systems that have direct links to addiction, depression and anxiety.
