Our focus is emotional well-being

We are not a medical facility. Our focus is emotional well-being. We aim at all times and for each resident to work in close partnership with mental health services, to take medical and mental health advice from them and to make space for their work with the individuals we support and also to work with the medical advice of local GP and other relevant services.

We provide a place of calm, away from the busy pace of the world, where you can find respite in which to walk towards emotional recovery.

The programme concentrates on facing deep-rooted issues by examining thoughts, actions, behaviours and choices, which are self-destructive and present in struggles which detrimentally affect daily life.

Our peer groups support those who struggle with emotional issues

We provide a safe space and an atmosphere of acceptance and encouragement; and the opportunity to be heard and find validation of your feelings without judgement or agenda. We can help you to learn techniques and coping strategies that support long-term resilience and to build your emotional strength over time, in order to feel relief from distress and find that life can feel manageable again.

To give you an idea, these are some of the topics we look at:

Self Esteem – Toxic Thoughts – Value – Boundaries – Stress – Comparison – Loss – Rumination – Anxiety – Perfectionism – Suicidal Thoughts – Pressures – Hopelessness – Fears – Self Compassion – Resilience – Fear – Mindsets – Shame – Low Mood – Identity – Masks – Mistakes – Meaning

We aim to:

  • Suspend the pressure of life while we gather to talk, laugh, cry, learn & be ourselves.

  • Aged 18 to 24 years old

  • Experiencing mental and/or emotional difficulties

    Difficulties that can make life seem overwhelming for them, or they feel their life is worthless and without hope.
