We would like to thank our sponsors below for making this all possible

Adult, Child, Couples and Group Psychotherapy, Counselling and Psychological Services.


During the recent time of social isolation and countrywide lockdown, people with mental health difficulties were experiencing exceptional challenges.  Stress, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, health concerns, fear of death,  financial worries,  anger, helplessness and frustration were all part of the ongoing trauma of daily life under lockdown.  These difficulties do not just go away now that things are opening up again.  It takes time for mental health problems to develop, and even longer to deal with the issues and attempt to resolve them.  If you are someone who has difficulties with strong emotions, then it is likely that you are in need of some help right now.

Careful, considered, contained therapeutic support can help people to cope with current stresses,  and to develop lasting psychological change, a sense of emotional well being, and a better quality of life. It can also reduce mental health difficulties on an ongoing basis.


If you are considering having some therapy or counselling we would highly recommend that  you have an initial consultation with one of our experienced practitioners to discuss what the issues are and how you might best be helped.

The  FREE initial consultation is for  up to 50 minutes. It will be via video-link or phone and you need a private uninterrupted space where you have internet access. After this, should you wish to continue, you will be referred to the most suitable practitioner, taking into account what you can afford, when you are available and what you would like.
