Compassion, Collaboration & Community.
We’re a York-based specialist mental healthcare provider, supporting people who require expert therapy to improve their mental wellbeing. We specialise in tailored care which is personalised and effective. Providing psychological assessment and therapy services locally, regionally and nationally. Neurodevelopmental assessment and therapy services for adults, children and young people with autism and ADHD.
Our mission is to deliver high quality, sustainable, renowned mental health and wellbeing services, alongside Autism and ADHD services, helping people to live well with themselves so that we all live better together.
As an independent charity, we provide care to people who refer themselves and those who are referred to us by GPs and other professionals. We can often help when others can’t, enabling people to recover and get their lives back on track.
