Action Plan Recovery Coaching  



In addition to sober coaching, I coach individuals in all phases of recovery to create action plans for health, relationships, and their career. Those who fail to plan, plan to fail: we work together to create targets to aim for that will allow you to reach your goals and improve your quality of life. After all, you can’t hit a target if you don’t have one.



Sober Companion Services




I am available to accompany those in early recovery to social and work related settings anywhere in the world.

Stephen Flinn began his recovery at the age of 22 (1984), and has been clean and sober over 34 years. The process to recovery wasn’t without years of serious unmanageability and painful consequences prior. A professional musician since 1976, he has performed on over 27 recordings and continues to tour throughout Europe, Japan, and the United States. He is a former Buddhist forest monk, and is an advocate of meditation, and practicing the twelve steps to achieve physical and emotional recovery.
