If you would like to be part of our Surviving to Thriving community or are interested and would like information about our services, we would love to hear from you..



1-1 Counselling

Offering a safe confidential environment for reflection, healing and support. Providing a range of therapeutic approaches, specialising in humanistic therapies.

Are you holding on to a painful memory or experience

that you need to be able to offload and explore in a safe nonjudgmental space? Men & women 18 & over.

Creative Therapies

An informal group for survivors.

Engage within a form of expression beyond words or traditional psychotherapy. Creative expression can be useful to gain understanding, develop awareness of self and others, gravitate towards acceptance and self-compassion and build self-esteem and resilience.

Creative Therapy is not an art class.

Group Support

Whether you are at the start of your therapeutic journey as a survivor or progressing , we would love to meet you. Set your own pace, and get the support you need within our small informal group. Sharing within a group can help with feelings of isolation and empowerment.

Surviving to Thriving is accessed following an initial consultation
