We understand that it's good to talk. Our counsellors are trained to listen and help you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a confidential setting. You can find out more by clicking HERE.


Using the power of suggestion, hypnotherapy can create changes to your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This process alters your state of consciousness allowing you to accept positive thoughts and feelings through natural relaxation. You can find out more by clicking HERE

Massage therapy clinic

Massage therapy can have many health benefits both physically and mentally. We are currently reviewing and planning our new therapy offers for those we support. We have plans to create a new fully accessible therapy space at No 31 Otley Road, we will keep you updated!
