ABOUT AMANDA LOCKYER:

Amanda Lockyer is a dedicated addiction coach and the inspiring host of the "Addiction Makes Three" podcast. Originating from New Zealand, Amanda's former life as a corporate accountant was deeply impacted by her partner's struggle with addiction and alcoholism. Her personal journey of coping with the destructive effects of her partner's addiction led to her own mental, physical, and psychological decline. However, her determination to seek help and understand the intricacies of addiction marked a significant turning point in her life.

Amanda's experiences have made her a compassionate advocate for those dealing with the fallout of a loved one's addiction. She understands the emotional turmoil, self-esteem issues, and the complex dynamics of manipulation and gaslighting that often accompany such situations. Today, Amanda uses her experiences to guide others through similar struggles, emphasizing the importance of separating the person from their addiction and the power of supportive surroundings.

Amanda's journey from the corporate world to wellness coaching is a testament to her resilience and determination. Despite initial struggles, she draws inspiration from her clients' transformations and the courage they exhibit as they navigate through addiction. She challenges societal stigma and moral judgment associated with addiction, promoting compassion, understanding, and setting boundaries.
