Our three main values are growth, learning and consciousness.  Grace is particularly passionate about Fulfilled Relationships, Happy Families and Women reaching their full potential.

Alan focuses on confidence building, especially for those in personal or professional transition, so that they can feel empowered for moving ahead.

Our Story

Our business really started when we met twenty five years ago at a psychology study group.  We found that we had much in common, and alongside a blooming, happy personal relationship we found we shared a passion for personal growth and development.  Grace’s roots were in Social Work and Alan’s were in education, and we both developed counselling skills, as well as training as professional family mediators.

We have now had nearly 20 happy years working with the people of the Plymouth area when they have needed support to meet personal and professional challenges.
