Are you struggling with your mental health?

We offer two different ways to join us here at the Chrysalis Centre. We accept self-referrals and professional referrals.

Mental health

Supporting. Empowering. Inspiring.

Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety or stress, there are often underlying causes that make the symptoms worse and mean you find it even harder to cope.

These can range from abuse (current or historic), bereavement, trauma, work issues, isolation, family stress, relationships or a build-up of life events. There are many, many reasons why women come to the Chrysalis Centre and many ways in which we can offer you support.

Once we have received your referral, you come along to Chrysalis to register with us. Our friendly team will talk to you about the support we offer and together you can decide the best way forward for you to start achieving your goals and reaching for your full potential. We use a person-centred approach putting you in the driving seat. You can move at your own pace and we will never tell you what to do. We will support, empower and inspire you to keep moving forward.
