The Newid Institute

We are working towards developing a psychotherapy institute to serve the local region. The Newid Institute will offer affordable Brief Focal and Exploratory Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Group Psychotherapy and Training and Consultancy services provided by experienced and highly qualified practitioners.

As an organisation we are committed to working with others to develop a greater awareness of ‘Social Value’. Social value plays a key role in society and is concerned with identifying and developing things that are important to the well-being of individuals, communities and the environment (e.g. happiness, empowerment, inclusion) which are not necessarily linked to finances.
