​I have been with Wings Trust since 2008 and am responsible for all administration aspects of Wings.  I arrange and organise client assessments and liaise with services such as WINZ and other service organisations.

It has been a pleasure to support thousands of clients over the years and to witness the miracle of recovery.


Anata entered the AOD field in 2010 and went on to complete her Bachelor of Addiction studies degree. Anata has had experience in both community and residential AOD service. Anata has personal experience of addiction and recovery which gives her strength and empathy as an effective clinician. She has a nine year old son who is the light of her life.


My personal relationship with addiction is one of a family member (affected other), being born in to a family in active addiction that thankfully transitioned into recovery. I have a keen interest in supporting my clients and their families to better understand both the addiction and the recovery process.


I am a father of 5 and have a lived experience of addiction, which I believe provides me with both empathy and a belief in the possibility of recovery for all those suffering from the impact of addiction. I have a Bachelor in Alcohol and Drug Studies and have been in the addictions field since 2013, having worked with the Salvation Army Bridge programme, Higher Ground and now Wings Trust. I believe strongly in the value of the therapeutic community and of walking alongside the client in order to promote self-efficacy and self-esteem. I am particularly passionate about working with families and with those who have experienced trauma.


I have a background of lived experience with addiction and understand the impact this has on the individual and their loved ones. I am nearing completion of a three-year bachelor degree in Addiction Studies. Currently, I am employed by Wings as the Consumer Advisor where my focus is to ensure that the needs of our clients are being met and their voices heard. I use the feedback I receive from Wings clients to implement positive changes to our service for the benefit of future clients. I have a personal admiration for the Wings Trust program as I have witnessed first-hand the great impact this service has on the lives of our clients and their families.
