From the moment you contact us we’ll listen to how you feel and treat you like an individual.

  • Cope better with things that worry you
  • Improve your mood
  • Improve your motivation
  • Build structure and activity back into your life
  • Reduce your stress and feel more relaxed
  • Be more assertive
  • Improve your sleep
  • Improve your physical health

How we work

We provide one-to-one and group therapies from a number of venues. We will try to provide your support from a venue most suitable for you.

As well as providing therapy face to face, we also do this over the phone and sometimes treatment can be a mixture of the two.
