One of the therapies we offer is Bibliotherapy. This is a beautiful approach using books, poetry, songs or journaling to explore difficult life challenges. This method in-directly looks at those challenges through the use of a character or theme, or it can be used to directly compare a character to one of your own lives.

Bibliotherapy is suitable for group or individual sessions.


ESEE aims to seeks a way to support an Educational Establishment to seamlessly incorporate an Holistic Curriculum into the School.

This is done by one or two school staff, Educational Professionals go through a training program for the first half of the Autumn term. The second half is used to set up a 'listening ear' provision with trusted, and trained school staff, supported by a Qualified Therapist. Supervision is given on a half termly basis and training is available through out the school year as part of the paid subscription.


Avek Toi is a coaching and mentoring service, at times our mental health can be affected by a place of work, food and lifestyle choices and what messages we consciously or unconsciously play in our minds.

By working with Avek Toi there is the opportunity to structure an individualised wellness plan incorporating an holistic approach to your health and wellbeing. Overall health is built from time spent on body, mind and energy health.

Training in emotional coaching, staff wellness and other topics are available.

We also offer staff wellness days, as well as conflict and change management.
