Updated: Dec 28, 2020



Sanctum Healthcare, one of the world’s leading treatment facilities for psychological and dependency disorders, has added to its already highly qualified team with the recent appointment of the formidable therapist and counsellor David Smallwood (PGDip, MSc, NCAC), who brings with him a wealth of experience.


Sanctum is a CQC registered health and wellbeing service based in Cheshire. Founded by Dr. Asad Raffi, a psychiatrist with over 18 years of experience in the sector, Sanctum has specialists in behavioural addictions, adverse childhood experiences, bereavement, trauma, divorce, loss of purpose and volatility in mood.


Dr. Raffi said: "It is with great pleasure that I welcome David Smallwood into the Sanctum team. David brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience which I’m confident will assist us in the next leg of our journey to becoming a globally recognised provider of ultra-personalised mental health and addictions treatment. It is a privilege to have David join our team."


David Smallwood is accredited by the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Counsellors and has over 20 years of experience in the field. David specialises in addiction, sexual orientation, childhood trauma, sudden wealth, generational wealth, and complex family dynamics. He has worked in several highly respected treatment facilities all over the world and is joining Sanctum as a Clinical Director and Strategic Advisor. He comments on his new role: “I am delighted to be joining Sanctum Healthcare to be part of a friendly, genuinely caring, and forward-thinking provider, and to help deliver patient focused treatment across the spectrum of mental health.”


David was welcomed to Sanctum by its Commercial Director, Jonathan Edgeley, who said: “Having David onboard feels like the final piece of our management team jigsaw. With the shared experience and expertise of the team we will continue to make significant changes in our clients’ lives and those of their families. We will strive to push the boundaries and forge our path in this developing industry of individualised treatment and recovery”.


Sanctum’s visionary approach to healthcare is to move away from multi-occupancy, multi person facilities and develop an individualised service which delivers the healthcare needs of its clients through fusing evidence-based approaches with new, cutting-edge healthcare technology. This includes a team of experts working to gain a complete view of the client’s neurological, physical, and mental health profile, enabling them to deliver a holistic, all-encompassing treatment.


Sanctum provides the highest levels of discretion and privacy, with its services used by those in the public eye, entertainment industry, and professional sports and athletics. During the Covid-19 pandemic, whilst sadly many healthcare providers have closed their doors, Sanctum have been able to move 90% of their treatment online which has enabled clients across the whole country to access treatment. An expansion into London and Dubai is also due to be launched.


Editor notes: Sanctum Healthcare, based in Wilmslow, is a specialist provider of bespoke treatments for psychological and dependency disorders.
