Our philosophy is that it's just as important to have a fence at the top of the cliff than an ambulance at the bottom. Why wait until we have an expensive and time-consuming crisis to resolve?

Our therapies, psychological coaching, and courses provide individuals and businesses with the understanding and support they deserve. 


We use an integrative humanistic approach which blends Person-Centred, Existential and Gestalt Psychotherapies to offer a contained confidential space to work on the issues you are facing.

From Defeated to OK
Life can knock you down.
We all experience doubts, or feel defeated by what life throws at us. Clinical definitions of anxiety or depression might be useful to identify the problem, but we're more concerned with alleviating the suffering.
When you're not OK and life demands that you 'should' be, let us help you get back up and more in charge of your self, your feelings and your life.
  • Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self-Worth and Confidence
  • Relationship Issues
  • Nature Therapy
  • Resilience and Stress
  • Trauma
  • Loss and Bereavement
  • and many more.
From OK to Amazing
Mental and Emotional wellbeing are often only focused on when you're in trouble, but we can do so much more.
