Practice Standards


Strong emotions like depression, anxiety and addiction are at the root of why so many people seek help from GP’s, counsellors, psychotherapists and clinical psychologists. [1]   

At any given time there are millions of people in the UK suffer from the negative effects of these emotions. [2]

The right type of counselling is known to be more effective than drug treatments for these conditions. [3]  Our practice falls within this category of counselling with therapies that offer effective and practical help for people who are depressed, anxious, phobic, or suffering from trauma, addiction, anger disorders or relationship problems. It is effective because it draws on findings from psychology and neurobiology about how people really function, as well as International research studies that have established which counselling techniques are most effective. 

Our practice adheres to the industry standards in order to fully protect and safeguard its’ clients.
