Mark Abrami is an accredited therapist with a special interest in the treatment of addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief. As someone with a personal history of addiction, he is highly enthusiastic about helping others throughout their journey to recovery.
At the moment, he works as a senior therapist at Castle Craig Hospital, an acclaimed residential rehab centre in Scotland, and acts as a counsellor and psychotherapist at First Psychology Scotland.
Mark offers appointments to individual clients, couples, families, and even groups. For inquiries on his availability, it is best to contact him directly by phone or email, at +44 (0) 7881 942464 or email@example.com, respectively.
In addition to the 12-step approach, Mark utilises CBT and psychodynamic therapy when treating patients. But first and foremost, his main focus is abstinence, meaning he wants his patients to achieve lifelong sobriety.
He also places strong emphasis on self-care and integrating family into the recovery process, as he understands those two factors play a key role in a lasting recovery.
After being a patient of Castle Craig himself, he went back to receive his Diploma in Addiction Counselling. From there, he started his career at the same hospital, working at a Lead Therapist at the Kirkurd Unit for males and later a Senior Therapist at the Extended Treatment Unit.
Currently, he is a senior therapist in the Intensive Treatment Unit and the Therapeutic Coordinator of the Executive Programme at Castle Craig. He also sees clients at First Psychology in Edinburgh.
In addition to receiving a diploma in Addiction Counselling at Castle Craig, Mark has a post-graduate degree in Psychotherapy and an MSc in Alcohol and Drug Studies at the University of Glasgow.
He also is an accredited member of COSCA (Counselling and Psychology in Scotland).
Mark is a regular speaker at Castle Craig reunions and is featured in many of their educational videos. He has also given a talk about aftercare on First Psychology’s Podcast.
