Therapy 4 Healing was born in 2009 from a passion to 'service the community'. Many of the committee members, facilitators and therapists have been given many years in free service in places such as schools; prisons; Princes Trust; Locus mental health; male parent groups and young people's groups. See some of the partners we work with here.
"Enormously beneficial for this residential community" - Carer
We wanted to continue to get care where care was needed through funding, sponsorships and collaborating with many charities, CIC's & partner organisations, so we formed this social enterprise. With this aim we started to get services to those in need, whether they could afford the whole service or a subsidised service, to continue the work we had begun.
''Thank you for teaching my children how to stay calm and take a breath. Looking forward to using at home'' - Parent
The team now consists of a group of like minded people who all work or have worked in various sectors such as HR Compliance; Accountancy; Business Owners; Complementary Therapy; Group Facilitation; Care Working and Project Leading.
