Counselling & Psychotherapy

We offer professional counselling and psychotherapy services for those afflicted by active addiction, already in recovery as well as the family and friends of addicts.

We offer a variety of services, both short and longer term to suit your own personal needs. We truly understand the unique struggles that addiction causes to the addict directly but also to those around them and it is for these reasons, that we create unique packages of care and support for every single person as we know that no one is the same and we all have unique needs, which we want to help you with!


Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to try to treat conditions or change habits. Our hypnotherapy services are tailored to meet the unique feelings, thoughts and behaviours that those afflicted by addiction face. We offer professional hypnotherapy that fits in with your life and helps to change the thought processes and ways of thinking that addiction creates.

Auricular Acupuncture

We offer auricular acupuncture. This is a form of acupuncture that utilises small acupuncture needles placed into specific places to help with the physical, mental and emotional issues that addicts face.

If you are needle phobic, that’s no problem! We can use special acupuncture seeds that apply pressure on the acupuncture locations in the ear using small seeds stuck onto specialist small plasters. These don’t involve any needles at all!

They can stay in place for upto a week which continually helps with cravings, withdrawal symptoms, stress, negative thoughts, low moods and much more.

Our auricular acupuncture sessions are currently suspended until the COVID-19 situation has settled. If you would like to know when these restart, please email us and we will add you to our waiting list and contact you as soon as they are able to restart.

Our Pricing & Fees

We offer highly competitive fees for our services. We know just how hard it is to pay for expensive therapy when drugs and alcohol have drained your bank account!

We want to help as many people as possible to turn their lives around and live the happy, productive and prosperous life that we know is possible for you to achieve!

Our rates, payment methods and service flexibility means that no matter what your situation or circumstances are, we can help!
