Quick Start

Paul Linley started the charity back in 2011, in Hull with only one client. It's conception of an idea way before it started was possible because Paul had gone through his own challenges and overcame and won the battle of Freedom.  

Developed

It soon grow fast over the months and years, supporting people with all kinds of addictions. In Hull and the surrounding East Yorkshire to supporting clients across the globe. 

Changes

From our humble beginnings of starting with 1 client we now deal with hundreds of referrals on a monthly basis. We needed to change our charity name from RHM Recovery to our current Rhema Recovery a subsidiary of Rhema Counselling Services, to better reflect the workings of our charity, whom support clients and business all over the UK and Internationally. 

2021

We've seen challenging times recently, but Rhema has gone from strength to strength. Supporting clients like you!

REACH

To reach as many people we can with hope, that they can be set free from addiction.

ADDICTION

The cycle of addiction is problematic and can last for decades, harming families and communities.

EXPERIENCE

Our experience in the addiction recovery sector, of some 20 years, is that the alternatives tend to deal with the only the symptoms of addiction and not the root causes. 

HEART

For maintained recovery, long-term healing must come to the heart of a person, so we aim to provide the necessary classes and courses that will get to the root of the problems…Rejection, Abuse, Abandonment, Trauma, Loss etc.

NECESSITY

We endeavour to provide a non-judgemental environment for anyone that seeks out our help in the UK and the Globe.
