There is an increased need for mental health services to be accessible to children and families. We have have become a community interest company to meet that need. We are all expereinced, fully trained and registered therapists. We have a proven track record of working affectively with trauma related mental health issues through long term therapeutic support. 

We work with children, adolescents, parents / carers, schools and support networks to improve the mental health of young people. We are passionate about making a long-term difference.
