HELEN BRATTON RECOVERY COACH
Live Your Best Life Possible.
Look inward, outward, and forward to a better life of no limits.
Welcome, I am Helen Bratton, Internationally accredited Recovery Life Coach, Speaker & Author.
I trained with the Robb Kelly Recovery Group directly under the Addiction Doctor, I have years of experience working with professional women successfully building lives for a better future. If you have decided to transform your life away from addiction, you are in the right place. I bring recovery home, working on breaking your addiction cycle whilst staying at home or unable to access treatment. I will support you after residential rehabilitation and bring long-term recovery to all. I encourage my clients to expand their continuing skills and develop themselves emotionally, spiritually, and mentally to lead a fulfilled life being fully empowered and future goal orientated. I have real-life experience dealing with a variety of adverse life problems, so please if you are struggling with something other than addiction, please get in touch. Coaching is a very supportive medium alongside other therapies and avenues of support which I fully encourage.
MORE ABOUT ME
This is the face of Recovery. Now an Internationally accredited Recovery Life Coach.
IT IS TRUE LIFE CAN SUCK! This is my calling, the journey has been hard, but it has been worth it. Let me take you back, it was the summer of 2014 in the hills outside Rome my life was turned upside down, shaken not stirred! I had a near-death stroke at 36, I obviously survived but I had to rebuild my new life as a disabled woman, I lost my marriage but thanks to a revelation in hospital I knew no matter what I was alive for a reason. Already an active addict which further escalated, my drug of choice being alcohol, I could have let the depression which pre-existed but worsened with my alcoholism kill me or change my life. I chose recovery to this insidious disease, that was my DECISION to get well and live. I initially got sober through a 12 step program but felt in a similar way to my stroke I wanted answers to the causes & conditions. I worked with a great Recovery Coach which took my whole recovery to another level. I loved it so much I went on to train with him. This was an enormous privilege as he is a recovery genius. Alcohol really is only the symptom of a greater issue, more often than not it is trauma mixed with a predisposition, the gateway though is trauma without a doubt and that was the case with me. I have now dealt with the deep causes to pursue my new freedom and to be able to have the most incredible future. I will guide you to the true life that you can embrace too, anything is possible. I survived to thrive, you CAN too. I take pride that I am 100% authentic, experienced and client focused.

When anxiety hits you, it can be terrifying. The panic and frightening thoughts coupled with physical symptoms may lead you to believe that you're having a heart attack or suffering from a terrible disease, when in reality, you're perfectly healthy!
If you ask a group of people who've suffered from clinical depression to define the illness, you'll hear a variety of answers. Depression is a very personal experience that millions of people all over the world experience. Different people manifest different symptoms, but one thing is certain: depression is a difficult illness that can destroy your life if left unresolved.
As a recovery coach, I work in a similar way to a life coach – I am not a treatment centre. I am here to offer encouragement, support, and help you build a better life in recovery, ideal to build further after any needed treatment. However, I have had success in helping individuals gain recovery from home when a residential treatment is not possible. We constantly think to your future. I support people with addictions or in recovery from alcohol, other drugs, codependancy, or other addictive behaviours. In order to function in this type of role, I have my own knowledge of addiction recovery & understand the complexities & usual causes. A confidential & private way of recovery is preferred by many especially high-profile individuals. It is also ideal for those unable to leave current commitments.
Do you suffer from low self-esteem and wonder about the source of your feelings of inadequacy? There are many potential sources of low self-esteem. It has been said that we spend the last 60 years of life recovering from the first 18. In many cases, the first 18 years of life give our self-esteem a beating. Adults aren’t immune from self-esteem issues either.
Increasing your self-esteem will enrich your life in countless ways. Your social life, finances, and happiness can all grow.
You never know when life it going to throw you a curveball. It comes in many forms, grief from someones death, life changing illness, life limiting illness, becoming disabled, job loss, divorce. The list is endless whilst counselling helps I will further guide you forward to build from your adversity.

Thank you so much Helen for your course on Patience, Tolerance, Resentments, and dealing with Anger issues.
You have raised so many relevant points and suggested ways of dealing with them, which I shall put into practice in the future. It really is so much easier when dealing with difficult situations to try and handle them in a relaxed and civil manner. Anger will only lead to resentment which helps no one.
The gratitude workshop & book were inspirational & I now view things very differently, it's not what I do not have, it is to appreciate what I do have.

GIVE YOURSELF THE GIFT
Of saying No
Do you feel like you’ve lost control of your life? Are you spending too much time on activities and responsibilities you don’t enjoy? There’s a good chance that saying “no” more often would bring some relief. Most of us feel uncomfortable saying “no”. But no other word can provide more freedom. There was a film about saying yes, I want one saying NO!
