Why We Are Good At What We Do

We firmly believe in a patient-centred approach by utilising “Wellness” as a model and incorporating experiential learning as one of the pillar techniques.

Our patient-centred approaches help people to live better lives. That means having:

  • Support and understanding
  • A purpose
  • A meaningful day/week
  • Family, friends and acquaintances that can provide love and support
  • Self-awareness that can lead to self-acceptance
  • Growth and self-development
  • Social groups to belong to and share with
  • People that treat you as an individual and worthy equal
  • Control over the direction of one’s life and future
  • Good health
  • A belief system based on own values and choices
  • Safety, security and justice
