Our Team

Meet our team

Every member of the team at Camino Recovery has a highly specialised skill set, and together, we empower our clients to improve their quality of life, reduce unnecessary pain and regain their independence.

Our therapists have trained to MA level at eminent universities and are experienced in dealing with a range of emotional, physical and behavioural conditions. They continue to research, review and implement new evidence-based practices which enhance the treatment of our clients. Our programme director has been a pioneer in the development of EAP (equine-assisted psychotherapy) as a therapeutic tool in both the USA and Europe.

Camino Recovery prides itself on being a leader in the field of addiction treatment.
