We offer individual and couples counselling, psychotherapy, groupwork, workshops, bespoke mindfulness training, mental health advice as well as supervision and training for professionals. We can offer you a safe and confidential space in which to work towards recovery and peace of mind.
At this time of Covid-19 we are offering all our sessions online. Our preferred option is Zoom and we are happy to talk to you over the phone if you need help with this technology. Our bases are in Ferryside and Swansea and offer our services in and around Carmarthenshire, South Wales.
We can offer you a safe and confidential space in which to work towards recovery and peace of mind.
HumanKind came into being out of a shared belief that all humans at some time in their lives may experience pain and loss, anxiety and frustration, jealousy and rage, difficulty relating to others, and feelings of alienation and shame. This is part of being human. We also believe that recovery and healing are possible, through sharing our stories, better understanding our life journey, building resilience, piecing ourselves back together and finding a sense of groundedness and safety.
