The Gluss Method®

Person-Centered Approach To Recovery

We incorporate our unique methods with the well-established evidence-based techniques of recovery treatment into the three phases of the Gluss Method®. We accomplish this by utilizing expert coaches relevant to the individual’s needs and deliver services to your home either by physically visiting or using secure internet services.

The Gluss Method® accomplishes the goal of sobriety by adhering to three major tenets: 

Separate

Separating the person from their disease. A new sense of self is developed without the self-destructiveness of addiction.

Grow

Personal growth is unlocked. By gaining a deeper insight into personal issues, we create a powerful structure to progress.

Thrive

Nurture your sobriety for the long term by implementing our thriving principles to create a passionate and successful life.

Lynn Ferguson is a Scottish storyteller who has worked in TV, theatre and movies, both as a writer and a performer, picking up a cluster of awards along the way. Through coaching, she discovered that the stories we tell ourselves are much more elaborate than anything we might tell others. Lynn helps unpick, simplify and clarify those stories so we get to live the life we wish to, rather than one dictated by dark old tales

from our past.
