About us

Over the past 18 years Sushi Productions have produced high quality training DVDs for counsellors and health practitioners, covering a range of therapeutic areas.

These  resources have been extremely well received by a range of organisations, nationally and internationally and include Alcohol and Drug Services, Mental Health Services, Tertiary Institutions, Medical Practices, and Community Services.

These DVDs are invaluable resources not only for specialist workers in the drug and alcohol sector but for generalist practitioners working in mainstream organisations. 

What the industry and our video users feel about us

The audio visual resources produced by Sushi productions are invaluable when developing education and  training for university students undertaking addiction studies.  I used the resources regularly in alcohol and other drug related (AOD) intervention courses for students from a range of disciplines as they offer great insight into AOD related counselling skills.

The team at "Therapeutic Journeys" always produce high quality, easy to follow learning resources. The resources include learning exercises alongside the clinical demonstrations that make a significant contribution to developing and maintaining reflective clinical practice. I commend these resources to clinicians and educators. I can offer no stronger support than to say that the resources regularly feature in my own training programs.

Steve Allsop, Professor National Drug Research Institute Curtin University

I strongly recommend these resource materials. They are produced by experts in the alcohol and drug and mental field with long-term and extensive clinical and educational experience and expertise. There are few products available that can match them for excellence and relevance.

Therapeutic Journeys: Techniques for Managing Trauma and Drug Use is an excellent resource for counsellors and therapists working with clients who are struggling with alcohol and other drug use in the context of trauma and mental health issues. The DVD provides a practical demonstration of various therapeutic strategies within a trauma informed approach to support and empower clients.
