Key focus – 5 a day!

The aim of this is to promote the idea of doing 5 things a day that will ensure you feel you’ve achieved something.

They can be as big or as small as is necessary for the individual. They can be tailored to the needs of the individual too and their goals (mental health, physical health, helping others).

OUR THERAPY SESSIONS

We provide individual or group counselling sessions led by Steph from ‘A Healthy Awareness’.

If you wanted, you could do both individual and group sessions. Steph talks to you, confidentiality about how you are feeling and supports you with managing your mental health. You may speak with Steph on the phone, via Zoom, or meet in person. If you talk once and change your mind, that is fine. If you would like to have a conversation with Steph, or book into one of our other therapy sessions,  please complete the form below and submit.
