    Our vision is to enable people to embrace life more fully through the growth, changes and healing that can take place through the counselling process. We offer a professional counselling/psychotherapy service where each person is appreciated and valued, their beliefs and situation respected, regardless of their ability to pay. Clients self refer and contribute what they can afford.

All are trained to postgraduate level and either qualified or in the final stages of their diploma level training. We adhere to the COSCA Statement of Ethics and Code of Practice.
