About Jacqueline

Jacqueline Hollows is the founder of Beyond Recovery, a Community Interest Company that seeks to create a fundamental change in the approach to understanding and treating mental health, addiction and offending behaviour; and to eliminate stigma associated with these issues.

By working with people experiencing severe and multiple disadvantages, and complex needs, Beyond Recovery endeavours to create opportunities, harmony and increased social inclusion. Furthermore, we believe that the ripple effect of sustainable change in behaviour and attitude will impact families, communities and the economy.

 
After a long and successful career working in IT and business, Jacqueline found herself in a very un-resourceful place, to the cost of her sanity and life goals. At this pivotal time Jacqueline made a life changing decision to move away from the stressful and meaningless path she found herself on by retraining as a transformational life coach and, using the Three Principles, started working with executives suffering from stress, depression and dependencies.

Through different avenues she was introduced to many people in recovery from various addictions. Jacqueline realised that sharing the understanding of how the mind works and its effect on our experience could help many people suffering with the stigma of addiction and the restrictive road to recovery.

Jacqueline’s coaching experience, business background and her passion for helping people with addictions and obsessive compulsions gave her the impetus to create a social enterprise dedicated to this work; Beyond Recovery C.I.C. Working with individuals, services and business people; Beyond Recovery provides coaching and workshop services based on sharing the Principles, for both the people with addictions and the people supporting them.

An understanding of the Principles, allow people to walk away from a troubled past and to rise above adverse circumstances, this is at the heart of services offered.

In conjunction with the work that Beyond Recovery are undertaking, Jacqueline is gathering valuable data, which will be used specifically for research about the effectiveness of the Three Princples therapeutic model in comparison to other models.
