We provide affordable, professional therapy and counselling services. At The AoC we really want to support you. Every step of the way. If you are part of a whole family struggling to communicate, or a couple trying to save their relationship or want mediation to work out how and when best to alternate visits with your children, or an individual looking for professional counselling or therapy, in order to work through and heal psychological or social difficulties, then The AoC can help you. We assist children, young people and adults of all ages. We don’t have long waiting lists either, which means you can receive support within days. You can refer yourself or be referred by anyone over the age of 18.
Individual and Family Therapy can be accessed through school, please contact Michelle Hellend for further details.
