"We want our clients to find enjoyment through our activities, and then discover who they are through that enjoyment.

We provide the social environments to enable our clients to embrace the 'now' and worry less about trying to fit in. We want everyone to realise troubling thoughts can be quietened and overcome. 

Our support helps people recognise you can be yourself, you can be different and you can still belong."

Service Director Jason

BEHIND OUR ACTIVITIES

....activities and opportunities we provide are still at the forefront of our support. Supporting people to become more physically active and sociable out the community has proven to be hugely beneficial to our client's mental health.

Behind these activities however, there is a very thoughtful, intuitive and mindful bunch of people who are also able to help on an emotional and mentoring level.

Over the many years we've been supporting people and from our own mental health experiences, we have come to understand that our clients don't want to feel like they are being "looked after", or the only reason for us being there is to meet a support outcome.

They want to be understood and for the person helping them to be a relatable, genuine and imperfect human being!

By forming open and honest relationships (and also from being in the car quite a bit!) we are often in a position for our clients to confide in us.

We are not psychologists or therapists and are aware of both our limitations as a service and the complexities of mental health conditions.

What we are able to do though is listen, help untangle thoughts and feelings and provide personal perspective and guidance.

These types of conversations are fundamental to our support approach and our clients take huge value and comfort from them.

We want aebal support to be authentic and fluid, and our clients to know we are by their side as they develop and grow into a person they like.

 

By instilling this approach, we have seen our client's well-being soar to new levels and as result they naturally achieve many independence related outcomes.

LAUGHTER

ON EVERY SESSION

Although we are advocates of mindfulness, we also know there is a limit to how helpful working through thoughts and feelings can be. Sometimes you just need to be a clown and be wheeled around a room inside a tractor tyre. We provide this too! Being playful, childish and immature can be hugely important for improving mental health!
