About the facilitator: Natalie Bossi

Natalie Bossi has an Honours degree in Psychology and has provided training to gambling staff and others for the South African Responsible Gambling Foundation for seven years. She is a trained telephone counsellor and is experienced and knowledgeable regarding gambling addiction. In addition she is currently completing a post graduate diploma in Addictions Care at UCT.  

She completed a course in Motivational Interviewing through the University of Stellenbosch and has trained many in this invaluable communication method, which aids people in behaviour change.

Besides the recent experience obtained at the SARGF, Natalie is a qualified reflexologist and Yoga Instructor. She has worked in the financial industry for companies like Old Mutual, UAL Merchant Bank and Investec.   

She currently provides training for the Cape Town Drug Counselling Centre, where her focus is again on Motivational Interviewing and more particularly Substance Abuse and Addictive Behaviour. The growing need in this field is evidenced by the provincial government acknowledging that this province faces dire addiction challenges at all levels of society; from school, the workplace to the justice system and family.

Businesses are having to confront the cost of addiction among their employees and parents are having to find more effective ways of dealing with the emotional upheaval that comes with the devastating realization that they have a child who is an addict. Training and psycho-education is desperately needed to empower all the stakeholders and Natalie is perfectly positioned to provide this service.
