GET TO KNOW US

We see ourselves as change agents and believe that social work and coaching share the same core value of ‘making a difference in people’s lives'; and we greatly appreciate having had access to both disciplines.  

Our philosophy is that a person is autonomous: you are the expert in your own life, and you will, therefore, be at the centre of our journey together. 

We are specialised in supporting many people including; Adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder; Adults with Learning Disabilities; Adults with Physical Disabilities; Older People; Vulnerable Adults and those who may be substance-dependent.

We have worked directly with clients on a one-to-one basis, as well with their families, for over six years. We have managed and supervised qualified and newly qualified staff, and have facilitated group reflective practice sessions.  

The essence of our work is to facilitate self-growth by helping you identify the core challenges and setbacks in your life, so that you can overcome them with confidence. We specialise in creating personalised plans and providing tools to guide you forward to achieve your desired goals.

We take great pride in the progress and success of our clients, and we look forward to working with you.
