Our Vision

To improve mental health in the BANES area and beyond through affordable, professional, and authentic counselling, regardless of background. To create confidential, safe spaces for the exploration of feelings through much-needed support groups that target areas of mental health.

Our Values

Our services are delivered within the context of a Person-Centred, Christian ethos which takes people’s spirituality seriously and respects the views of those with other faiths or no faith. Clients can talk freely and confidentially without fear of being judged. We value the fundamental worth of all human beings and the belief that within us all is the capacity for learning and growth.

Our Mission

To offer affordable counselling to all, whether adults, children, teenagers or couples. We are also committed to helping the development and skills of trainee counsellors and offer quality placements.
