“Some really deep soul-searching, but it was done in as gentle and accepting, non-judgmental way as possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I feel that this is a turning-point for me.”

“Amazing, gentle and supportive space facilitated professionally. The workshop was enjoyable and real. Thank you.”

“Every time I attend a workshop or lecture here, I learn more about myself and how to become a better me!”


“What a lovely space! This has been absolutely life-changing. I have found me again.”

“Seeking help here was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It has undoubtedly changed my life in so many ways.”

Addiction and its Effect
Addiction is a compulsive self-defeating behaviour involving an all-consuming relationship with a mood- altering chemical, person or activity that has debilitating consequences. 

Chemical addictions may include alcohol, street drugs (such as tic, heroin, crack, cocaine, marijuana) or prescription medication (such as codeine, morphine, pethidine, benzodiazapines). Process addictions may include sex, love, codependency, eating, gambling, work, social networking and gaming.

You don’t have to be in active addiction to suffer from addiction.

Addiction not only affects the addict/ user but a network of others connected to them. Family members, friends, work colleagues, employers and employees also suffer from the debilitating and progressive effects of addiction and codependency eg. ‘adult children of addicts or alcoholics’ (ACOA) who have grown up in homes where there is addiction.

Recovery is possible for anyone affected by addiction in the past or present.
