The concept of Therapy Angels is that we provide a place where people whose health would benefit from accessing complementary and alternative therapies can access them, for reduced or no cost, and where the therapists would be properly recompensed for their time and expertise.
From experience, we know that people with physical ailments such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and COPD can see great improvements in their health through accessing complementary therapies such as Bowen technique, Emmett Technique, or aromatherapy. However, the very people who could benefit most from the therapies are not likely to be the ones who can afford to pay the fees. This project started as an idea to enable these people to access suitable therapies, and has expanded to provide a suitably accessible venue for this to take place.
We would also like to provide the opportunity for people who need to access counselling but are having trouble getting it through the NHS to be seen by an appropriately trained counsellor.
