Our wellbeing services
January 2021 - Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the Coates Centre is unable to open its doors and the usual activities are not currently running.
However we have a growing number of online support workshops and sessions run by Oakhaven’s Complementary Therapy team to help improve your wellbeing. Details can be found on our Wellbeing Sessions page
If you live in the New Forest, in the Waterside or Totton and the surrounding area and living with a life-limiting illness (whether recently diagnosed or for some time), perhaps care for someone with a life-limiting illness, or you are finding it hard to cope with bereavement we will try to help you as far as we can during this time.
