The Centre for Better Health

The Centre for Better Health offers a range of services that support wellbeing and recovery from mental ill health.

We offer low-cost counselling to help you make sense of difficult experiences, deal with negative thoughts and feelings and make positive changes in your life.

You might decide to engage in counselling if you are feeling distressed by an event in your life, or if you have been diagnosed with a mental health problem.

At the Centre for Better Health, we provide a safe, therapeutic space that allows you to reflect, focus on your inner-self and raise self-awareness.

Better Health Hub

Meeting new people, learning a skill and starting a new hobby are great ways to look after your wellbeing and mental health. At the Centre for Better Health, we offer a range of affordable daytime and evening courses and workshops that aim to promote wellbeing, develop skills and reduce isolation. From ceramics to yoga, painting to herbal craft, we have you covered.

Social Enterprise

Nestled in the heart of Haggerston, our social enterprise consists of three businesses: Better Health Bakery, Better Health Bikes and Better Health Products. Pop down to 13 Stean Street to take a look. You can see the opening hours for our bike shop here and for our bakery here.

Alongside selling sourdough bread and upcycling old bikes, we run a 12-week trainee programme for individuals that have been distanced from work owing to mental ill health in order to build job skills, motivation, routine, confidence and social skills within a supportive, psychosocial environment.


We couldn’t offer our services without the support and dedication of the many volunteers who join our team. We aim for volunteering to be mutually beneficial; supporting the Centre’s work while enabling volunteers to develop job skills, meet new people and give back to the community. Our placements include counselling, baking, bike mechanics and more.
