Men's Group Participant

Heart Wood is a mental health charity based in Hexham, Northumberland.


We offer free person-centred therapeutic group counselling a natural environment for people who are experiencing complex and enduring poor mental health.  We work with people within our community who often cannot engage with existing services.

Our current programme comprises our Men's Groups for men aged 25+ and Active Survival sessions with young adults (male and female) aged 16-24 years.

What we offer is unique and different - a quality intervention with small manageable group sizes, that puts people in the lead.

Heart Wood also offers residential CPD training courses in the Heart Wood approach, and facilitated wellbeing days for staff teams. 

To find out more about our programme, please contact Emma at or call 01434 607726.
