When you need support for yourself or your loved one it can be overwhelming to know where to start.
If you're dealing with a recent big change like an accident or a diagnosis it's stressful enough knowing what the next step is, without having to make sense of a bunch of new terms.
We get all this, and that's why we start with a free Discovery Session before you make any decisions or commitments. It's your chance to tell us everything you think we should know. Not just what you need help with, but personal things like your favourite foods, what you like to do for fun and what's most important to you.
But maybe you want some information before the sit down, to make sure it'll be worth your time. We've got you covered. Here are the 8 ways we can help you live your best life:

It can involve anything from a rock climbing lesson to sitting in the park. It all depends on what your loved one needs and enjoys.
