The Family Wellbeing Hub
The Family Wellbeing Hub was founded in May 2019 by Dr Rhiarne Pronk-Scholes and Dr Mark Scholes. The Family Wellbeing Hub was established as a shared place of practice for a variety of health professionals and services.
Our vision is to offer a range of independent wellbeing services that are centered on the importance and needs of the family and its individuals. The Family Wellbeing Hub contains psychological services for children, adolescents, families and adults with a range of psychological and social concerns. The Hub also contains a lactation specialist and social worker. The Hub is a place where clients of all ages can seek support to improve their wellbeing.
If you would like support for yourself or your family, please get in touch with us. You can do this by choosing a service/professional from the list below, and contacting them directly.
We look forward to supporting you!
