Living Well Programme

The programme takes place every weekday 5pm-6.30pm and includes a Vertebrae/12-Step group on Friday 3pm-4pm. For a recommended 6-12 weeks, alongside individual therapy and/or EMDR, the focus of this programme is to strengthen your recovery process so you:

  • feel increasingly confident and in better esteem
  • enjoy the discipline of good self-care and benefit from the motivation that follows
  • be better able to effectively communicate with humility and curiosity
  • commit to your recovery plan and your fellowship
  • develop healthier relationships both professionally and personally
  • reclaim responsibility for your life

The Monday – Friday groups are led by Mandy Saligari, Mu’Dita Farrell, and James Burke. James also facilitates the Vertebrae/12-step fellowship group on Fridays, answering any questions, providing inspiring introductions and clarifying any concerns.

Mandy, Mu’Dita and James have over three decades of experience of treating addiction and will carefully adapt each week to meet individual need. They are always maintaining keen attention on the core characteristics of addiction, the impact of addiction as a family condition, relapse prevention, promotion of the discipline of self-care, healthy handling of shame and anger, strengthening identity and fostering self-worth.

The main addictions we work successfully with are drugs and alcohol, intimacy difficulties and love addiction, eating disorders (including food planning), codependency and gambling.

We have also have significant success treating depressive disorders and persistent low mood, anxiety, relationship breakdown, stress and burnout.

The programme is adaptable to the needs of those attending so that it is always relevant. The first step is assessment, and care pathways are regularly reviewed and updated.

Attendance at the fellowships is recommended for those in addiction recovery, and we encourage our clients to undertake individual, couple, family therapy or EMDR (as appropriate) alongside the group programme to make the most of this transformative opportunity. This can be with a therapist of their choice either at Charter or independently. We also provide therapy dedicated to family members and partners.


Aftercare is a group that clients on the Living Well Programme will graduate onto after having done sufficient work on their recovery. It is a popular, long term evening support group that focuses on the 12-step structure, answering any questions, providing inspiring introductions and clarifying any concerns.

I made the call, listened and got to work. It was the best call I ever made. Charter shone the light on the darkness and made it a safe place for me to step out into the light. With courage, honesty, and compassion, I now show up for life every day, I now show up for me every day.

I am so very grateful to all of the team at Charter. They are professional, they are fun, and most of all, they really really care!


The work is comprehensive, searching and at times, uncomfortable. But it's absolutely necessary. My advice to anyone struggling with addiction who's thinking about going is very simple.

Do it. Throw in the towel. Get yourself into group, open up, get honest.



The Living Well Programme immediately cut right to the core of my issues and I started to soften and develop as an individual. At times it was painful, but at always I felt held by the programme.

I did not feel just like a number. The care and the attention of the whole Charter team never faltered. The main therapists are phenomenally skilled and the group dynamic was supportive, yet challenging. I have made connections and friendships I expect to last a lifetime.


Charter gave me my first real glimpse of freedom of my addiction and the will to face another day free of fear. Every single therapist brought their own particular stance into the groups, and there was as much laughter as tears.  I can only say thank you.


What makes Charter so special is the way that the team work together to create a complete picture of what you need and where you’re at, on an almost second by second basis. I felt seen and heard. This made me feel safe enough to get on with the painful risks I needed to take in group to get properly well; the risks I’d spent a whole life avoiding.
