We believe – and the World Health Organisation agrees – that health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Easing difficult symptoms, succeeding in stressful situations and performing our purpose can be a challenging journey where we often don’t even know if we’ll ever reach our desired destination.
We believe that everyone can do something to improve their health and their feelings. Through our work, we promote our Helpful Agenda – to live our lives in a way that’s actually and actively helpful to our health and wellbeing.
We are constantly exploring our ethos, our methods and our worldview, to become better practitioners and better people!
Here are a few blogs to help you understand more about the ideas that underpin our work.
