Here, you are being invited to connect and express. Connect to life around you and express life within you.



Grief and regret are part of life, but they can leave us life-less. Anger and anxiety happen to everyone but sometimes we have no-one with whom we can express what is going on for us.

With gentle presence and clear focus therapeutic counselling can help you find your own way from overwhelm to ease, from the sense of separation to connection. Bring you back to life.

Counselling can be helpful at any time, not only in times of crisis. It may help you maintain mental and emotional wellbeing when you face life’s transitions and relationship challenges.

—TIM BEANLAND, PhD, Head of Knowledge, Alzheimer’s Society
