Our social purpose is:

  • To make mental health support accessible at an early stage.
  • To support young people to achieve their potential.
  • To make mental health support accessible in rural areas.  
  • To increase mental wellness in communities.

Our therapy van story:

In November 2018 we purchased a Ford Transit van, over 7 months we transformed it into a calming therapy space.  The Cup-O-T therapy van can be used for therapy appointments, as a base for groups or to run workshops from at events.

Our therapy woodland story:

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we were unable to use the therapy van as a space for appointments due to social distancing. Instead we used it as a base and held appointments outdoors, in nature reserves, community spaces and woodlands. As social distancing lifted our young people and families requested that this continues. So the quest to find a woodland space began! In November 2021 we linked up with a woodland in Wymondham and in December 2021 we began a crowdfunder to secure the rent. We raised £6,000 and in January 2022 we began to transform the woodland space and run therapy sessions. there is still a way to go, shelters and facilities to add (STPP). but it is beautiful and tranquil and we hope you can visit one day.

We are proud members of:

My EMDR sessions have really helped to get my PTSD under control. Catherine has worked with me at my pace, never forcing me to go faster than I feel able to progress. She has worked with sensitivity and understands that my trauma is very real and the attacks I have faced are debilitating in the extreme (other therapists and other kinds of therapy have left me questioning myself a lot, EMDR hasn’t). I haven’t had to analyse my issues or dwell on the details I can’t face. Instead I’ve been able to work through and reprocess my feelings which has led to me being able to easily cope during times which would previously have been triggers to an attack. EMDR is one of the best therapies I have encountered and Cup-O-T and Catherine have been simply amazing. Thank you so very much for changing my world.
