PHEW! stands for Physical Health and Emotional Wellbeing. It is an organisation run by Dr Joy Harris, a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with 25 years’ experience of working with children and families in the NHS. Our aim is to support families with children with physical health difficulties, or emotional difficulties which are making them physically ill.

Health and Wellbeing College

The college aims to provide something very different for local people. We have moved away from the clinical focus offered by many traditional support services; instead we offer an educational approach designed to empower you to take control of your own health and wellbeing, while learning new skills, making friends and connecting with others. Our recovery-focused courses can support you to recognise your potential and make the most of your talents and resources, through self-management. In turn, this can help you to deal with any health challenges you may experience and achieve the things you want in life.
