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.
