He who looks outside, dreams.

He who looks inside, awakes.

- Carl Jung

If you are looking for support for yourself or your employees we can help.

We offer short and long-term counselling, therapy and coaching to help our clients get to a better place.

Our highly qualified and experienced practitioners help people with a wide range of aspects of their internal and external worlds: from depression and anxiety to work-based and life coaching.

If you feel something doesn't sit quite right with you, or you want to make positive changes, we can help you explore it, discover what is really important to you and how you might find and live that life.  Whether it is work, relationships, spirituality and deep connection to self, others, and the world, or whatever you suspect is misaligned. 

Let's talk.

"This is a subtle truth. Whatever you love you are.

The universe is not outside of you.

Look inside yourself: everything that you want, you already are."

~ Rumi~

for transformation & growth

Fulfilling our potential is a never-ending process: personal growth often comes in fits and starts. 

Often we must make changes to enjoy happier more fulfilling lives. 

Our consultants are trained in both disciplines of coaching and counselling, offering professional support to help transform individuals using a cutting-edge, discreet and effective approach to well being and growth. 

Embraced by individuals and corporations alike, we provide understanding and personalised support to help develop emotional, mental and behavioural balance and success.




Embrace your future, create and reach worthy goals and unblock the issues that stop you reaching them so you can reach your full potential.


Discreet and confidential, personalised services to support you on your journey to discovering the real you.

Coaches & Counsellors for Wellbeing, Personal & Professional Growth

We are trained in both disciplines of coaching and counselling, meaning our clients benefit from a richer, deeper learning experience.

Unlike coaches we are therapeutically trained to go deeper to unblock issues that stop you reaching goals.


Unlike counsellors our work doesn't have to end at the present - we can explore how you want your future to look and give you strategies to get you there.
