Nice to meet you, I’m Luke Worsfold,
Addiction specialist and founder of Lisa Inside Addiction.
So you’re probably wondering,
Who is Lisa?
She was my mum who died from addiction when I was 10, but she also gave me the greatest gift.
I discovered this when I realised her life was not an example, it was the lesson.
My journey took me from an emotionally dead drug addict to now living a life of fulfilment.
Eventually, I created this company which I subsequently named after her.
But in the beginning, I went through a similar struggle to what you’re going through right now.
Growing up with a drug-addicted mum who died meant that every day I emotionally ran from the trauma, using drugs and alcohol to rip out everything that connected my head to my heart.
I buried any feelings deep in the valley of my soul never to be found again.
Until one day… keep reading

My Full Story
I went through the same struggles you’re going through right now…
I grew up with a drug-addicted mum who died when I was 10.
Every day I emotionally ran from the trauma, ripping out everything that connected my head to my heart, burying any feelings deep in the valley of my soul never to be found again.
Until one day I hit rock bottom when I realised I was a drug addict heading towards death just like my mum. In that moment I made a commitment to become the best version of myself and lead others by example.
But walking into my first therapy session I really believed I could die from bringing back up the pain I carried.
I had suppressed so much of my emotions I did not know what I would find and that scared the hell out of me!
I quickly had to develop the courage needed to embrace the uncertainty and anxiety of this journey of self-discovery.
As the days turned into months I read over 100 books on the mind to learn the psychoeducational information I needed to upgrade my thinking.
I studied mindfulness and meditated every day so I could get a deeper understanding of my cognitive thought patterns and the impact those thoughts had on my behaviour.
I watched countless podcasts, mentors on YouTube and attended multiple personal development seminars to get all the practical tools I needed to thrive in daily life.
But I didn’t stop there because I kept going back to therapy to untangle the mess of my emotions.
It was there I started to understand the impact of mum’s actions on my traumatic development and how my broken inner child was living inside me as an adult. I gained an understanding of the ripples of addiction throughout my life and how they affected every subconscious decision I made.
As I started to heal, the months turned into years and I saw a pattern emerging. When I looked back at my journey I had developed four main skills.
I had learnt to observe and sit with my thoughts and cultivate better relationships with myself and others. I discovered how to deal with very emotionally intense events and situations. Lastly, I persevered to regulate my emotions on a daily basis.
So when I went into training to become a counsellor and discovered Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) which covers these exact four areas (mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, emotional regulations), a huge lightbulb went off.
I thought, “I wish I had this when I started,” because it would have compressed all the years spent going the long way round into weeks.
I was so fascinated I studied DBT on top of my degree so I could become a specialist.
As I started to crystallise my skills I decided to custom build this program based on everything I had learned to help people just like you.
I have now led a range of clients through this program from people drinking too much at the weekend to clients doing multiple grams of cocaine a day.
So if this is resonating with you, please take a look at our Recovery Program.
