How to find us

  • The Canterbury Office is located on Wincheap Industrial Park opposite ‘Bamboo Tiger’ and next door to ‘The IT Store’.
  • To enter the building please come to the front door and ring the buzzer. You’ll be let in by a member of the team who will ask you to take a seat in reception until you are called for your appointment.
  • Parking: Please park in the pay and display car park at Maynard Road Car Park which is a 5 minute walk away (located next to Iceland on The Wincheap Industial Estate). It is 80p for up to 5 hours. After 5:30pm there are spaces outside the office. Please do not park at Bamboo Tiger; they issue a parking ticket if you are not parking there solely to shop in their shop.
  • We are a 5 minute walk from Canterbury East Railway Station and a 20 minute walk from the town centre and Canterbury Bus Station

What we offer

We are a NHS qualified provider of free, high quality, evidence based, talking therapies for those struggling with common mental health problems. We offer support for a range of problems including depression, stress, anxiety, panic, trauma, bereavement, relationship problems and many more. We specialise in talking therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Integrative Psychotherapy, Couples Counselling for Depression and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), and offer telephone support, psychoeducational groups and face to face sessions. Face to face sessions are delivered from venues across Canterbury, Faversham, Whitstable and Herne Bay and evening appointments are available.

Our therapists and practitioners look at the whole problem when supporting people and are therefore also experts in signposting clients to organisations which can help address practical problems impacting on their mental wellbeing. They also know the benefits of exercise on our mood, so they run a health walk every fortnight from central Canterbury which promotes physical and mental wellbeing as well as a great opportunity to meet new people.

“Thank goodness for this service and the support I have had, without it I seriously wonder whether I would still be on this planet. I am on a journey towards being happier and healthier than I have ever been and I owe everyone so much. Thanks from the bottom of my heart x.”
