national standards. Their counselling is available to all – Male, female, young, old, people of

Psychodynamic, Person Centered, Cognitive Behavioral and Integrative Therapy. Some of
their Counsellors have been accredited for many years and others are still engaging in the
final stages of their training and accreditation. They try to help people who cannot afford
regular counsellor costs and chat through what is affordable at the assessment consultation.
Their underlying ethos is a Christian one, which means that they value each client as a
person of worth and value and seeks to offer a caring and supportive space for recovery, self
discovery and growth. All of us have incredible potential and have been created live life to
