Adam Cowan

Recovery Worker

Qualifications and experience

Having spent thirteen years working in the financial markets and two years in recruitment, I realised my work/life balance had taken a toll on my health and wellbeing. I have a degree in philosophy and a huge interest in yoga and meditation -so decided to change direction and focus my energies on helping others in order to help myself.

Working with addiction

I really enjoy helping people in their everyday lives and want to give back as much as possible. I also like to share aspects and experiences that have contributed to my own recovery such as meditation with the clients. It is a joyful experience to watch our clients rebuild their lives and rebuild their lost relationships with families and friends.

Working at the lighthouse

I think it is my vocation in life to help and care for others and I really enjoy every day at Step by Step Recovery enabling people to rebuild their lives by helping them understand that we can recover together as a community. The staff team at the Lighthouse is second to none and I have never before come across such caring and professional co-workers, which makes it a pleasure to come to work.

Hobbies and interests

I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, going for walks and meditation.
