Since 1992 we’ve been helping people get unstuck and happy.  Counselling has changed a lot in that time.

Scientific research has helped us to know what really helps people.
We know now that healing happens in a different part of the brain than just talking about things.

Our caring counsellors have effective tools to help you get better, fast.
