The best way to get started on your journey to making a positive CHANGE to your life is to get in touch.


You can begin by completing an initial enquiry form.


You can be completely confident that we will never disclose anything you tell us unless required to do so by law.

Enquiry Form

Depending on your answers, you will then get the opportunity to tell us more about yourself and the issues you are facing by completing a further form which asks for a bit more detail. A link will be sent to you by email, or you will be prompted to go to this form when you complete the first one.


We offer the opportunity to give us information using forms because you can complete them in your own time and we have discovered that they reduce any negative feelings or stress you might feel.


If you would rather talk to someone, you can phone the CHANGE line or request a callback.
