As well as professional, therapeutic support, or programmed events, our door is open for rest and relaxation, care for carers, spiritual retreat and accompaniment, training, study and sabbaticals or for a holiday. You are welcome to phone us and discuss your requirements.

Holy Rood House is a charity with a gentle Christian ethos, providing safer space for those of us who are finding life unsafe.

In 2005 we watched a close friend struggle to find the information they were looking for when they were in desperate need of emotional support. This was when we realised there was a need for a service bringing together the information required to help individuals find a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist in their local area. 

Counselling Directory is a confidential service that encourages those in distress to seek help. The directory contains information on many different types of distress, as well as articles, news, and events. To ensure the professionalism of our website, all counsellors have provided us with qualifications and insurance cover or proof of membership with a professional body.

'MINDFUL EMPLOYER is a UK-wide NHS initiative which provides organisations with easier access to information and local support in relation to the people who work for them.'  

The Spirituality section of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Formerly known as ASPCC) is concerned not only with those who work as counsellors and psychotherapists, chaplains or pastoral carers within faith communities but, far more broadly, with all those in the counselling and psychotherapy field who take spirituality seriously and wish to take their clients' spirituality seriously. APSCC has an excellent journal which is also available to interested individuals who are not professionals in the field.

The Centre for mental health aims to help to create a society in which people with mental health problems enjoy equal chances in life to those without.
We focus on criminal justice, employment, mental health at work, recovery and children. 

Promoting understanding and support
for those going through profound personal transformation/Spiritual crisis (often called Spiritual Emergency, Emergence, Awakening or psycho-spiritual crisis) is a turbulent period of spiritual opening and transformation.
We recognise that spiritual crisis and mental health difficulties often overlap.
 Our vision is to act as a resource providing help and information: for those going through or recovering from spiritual crisis, for professionals, carers and supporters of those going through or recovering from spiritual crisis.  We are charity steered by a development group of volunteers including professionals, experts by experience, occupational therapists and a clinical psychologist.
