The Centre for Emotional Health is a therapy based organisation, promoting emotional health from psychotherapeutic, human rights and anthropological perspectives; offering one to one therapy, research consultancy and training.

We are dedicated to highlighting how we harm and how we heal; helping people to develop and maintain well-being and prevent ill-health.

Our full title is The Heart Centre for Emotional Health.  We are so named to reposit the source of emotional health and the cause of distress in this physical centre, correcting the emphasis which is so commonly placed on the mind.
