Childhood Trauma

Get the Most out of Life

We cannot change our history, but we can change the way it impacts on our life in the here and now. Together we can look at what you would like your life to be like from this point on.

Recovery From Abuse

Finding the Real You

Abuse strips us of our self esteem, confidence and identity. It is replaced with the devastation of shame, blame and guilt. We can move through this and shed those negative thoughts and feelings of worthlessness. You CAN become more.


Embrace Life’s Challenges

Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. Together, we can find a way to manage and respond in a more positive, empowering way.

Located in Southend with ample local parking, close to Prittlewell train station and local bus routes. Secure entry building for added safety/confidentiality.
