"Six years ago when Credo was established, I had a vision of people being attracted to it's message and beliefs, and truly benefiting from the unique spiritual emphasis that we place upon the counselling/therapy process. And so it has been. Watching the vision become reality has been an amazing and fulfilling experience for me. Credo continues to grow, now operating from 12 bases around the north-west of England. I am very proud of what has been achieved in a short time, and my sincere hope is that in the years to come Credo continues to provide a place where people can find healing, deep peace and a contentment and joy in life.

"Please feel free to contact me - I look forward to hearing from you."
