He has a degree in integrative counselling and is undertaking a diploma in supervision and personnel management. All staff have to be accredited in their chosen field and a member of their appropriate governing body.

Supplementing our core staff team are a team of qualified volunteer therapists who specialise in family therapy, couples work, and individual work around sexual abuse, eating disorders addiction and many issues that underpin family dysfunction. Group Facilitators deliver focused therapeutic group work including anger and anxiety/stress management, specific gender groups a Freedom Programme, (working with women and domestic violence) and Parenting Groups.
