Supporting You

Breaking the silence is the first step in healing and moving forward.
A wise man once said
“Healing is a journey, not a destination”

This is something we wholeheartedly agree with. Along the way, like any long journey, we can misread the map and end up taking a wrong turn but by taking a pit-stop, we can re-assess the route and make amends to our planner. We may also need some assistance along the way and in this section that is what we hope to do.

From a directory and details of useful links to organisations that could possibly help, to details about the services we provide ourselves, we hope that our range of support services provides you with what you need.

We arrange all of our services in to one of three steps which allows you to enter and exit at whatever point you feel is best. We have provided this diagram to help explain our services:
