aboutus

Welcome to YARDO!  We develop evidence-based Mental Wealth Programmes for adults and young people, free of charge for local community groups and grassroots organisations.

Our therapeutically informed programmes are delivered by accredited psychotherapists, counsellors and facilitators including our board members, who share a vision for whole-community wellbeing based on togetherness. We have piloted our programmes in Acton and the surrounding neighbourhoods in West London.  Our dream is to open a  neighbourhood centre for healing therapies, workshops and wellbeing events.

YARDO's programmes are cross-subsidised. This means you pay what you can afford for the courses because the fee is subsidised by grants, sponsorship and donations from those who can pay more.

“At first, I felt a little anxious, I did not know what to expect.  Life experience was a little  difficult for me and with the overwhelming affect of Covid19, I felt completely lost.

 

The retreat was a very positive experience that left me totally refreshed and at peace with myself.

Dong Sticks - Mindful Movement

It is hard to describe but when you get into the flow of it is brilliant.  I loved being in nature, the feeling of stretch and centredness that I got at the end. I would absolutely come back.
