Mandy Saligari Specialist

Following the success of its first series, Mandy Saligari recently finished filming the second series of Celebrities In Therapy, currently airing Wednesday nights at 10pm on Channel 5.

The insightful show reveals some of the UK’s most papped celebrities as never seen before. Danniella Westbrook, Kerry Katona, Calum Best and Coleen Nolan are amongst a variety of clients who offer Mandy unprecedented access to their private lives and personal crises during intensive therapy. In a bid to understand who each celebrity really is, Mandy explores every aspect of their pasts from troubled childhoods to love affairs and confronts how being the centre of a media frenzy really affects the stars.

Mandy is a regular contributor to press and television, often appearing as the Agony Aunt on ITV’s flagship show, This Morning. Giving advice and answering viewers’ questions on a range of issues from marriage to parenting dilemmas.

Mandy fronted Channel 5 documentary series, Violent Child, Desperate Parents. In this documentary series, Mandy took a look at the UK’s most violent and difficult children, trying to understand why their behaviour is so extreme and helping them deal with it. Mandy’s approach is to repair the family relationship- believing the problem does not lie solely with the children but within the family dynamics in which they grow up.

Mandy is the founder and clinical director of Charter, which was set up in 2008.  Charter is one of London’s leading outpatient clinics specialising in private addiction treatment, solely in an outpatient setting, as a valid alternative to residential treatment.

Her first contact with the world of addiction recovery was when she came into treatment herself in 1990, when working as a TV producer.  Over the following years, Mandy made the transition from patient to therapist, undertaking apprenticeships, group work, interventions, lectureships, and eventually taking on clients, earning herself a reputation for clinical excellence, delivering thorough recovery outcomes.

20 years on, and specialising in individuals and families affected by broad-spectrum addiction and addictive processes, Mandy is a highly respected and established expert- passionate about helping people live healthy, happy, addiction free lives and preventing addiction running through families and society. She is passionate about dispelling the myths surrounding addiction and mental health. Mandy is also committed to regular talks at schools on early intervention, addiction, emotional coping mechanisms and self-esteem.

Mandy has been married for 17 years and has 3 children. She enjoys renovation projects with her husband and spending time watching her daughter ride horses or her sons play sport, every weekend, whatever the weather.
