Dr Robert Lefever specialises in helping patients with addictions, including drugs, alcohol, addictive behaviours and eating disorders, and has done so for more than 30 years. He previously ran a private practice and rehab in South Kensington and Kent with 120 staff, but he now prefers working on a one-to-one basis with his patients. ‘I can concentrate 100 per cent on the patient in front of me,’ he says. ‘It is the most rewarding work to help people in their lives, to start working with them and help them to get well’. With a penchant for photography, Dr Lefever is also a keen writer, penning seven novels to date. He enjoys putting his ideas about his life and work into a story form, always incorporating the theme of addiction into the storylines.
