Welcome to the New Leaf Recovery and Wellbeing College

We understand that sometimes life can be hard. Here we can help people to lead a happy and fulfilling life despite life’s challenges. 

We do this by providing FREE education-focused wellbeing short-courses that help people to better manage their own wellbeing. 

Our courses offer theoretical based knowledge, helpful skills and useful tips for reaching your wellbeing goals and helping you to overcome a range of wellbeing challenges. 

We give you time to reflect upon your own situation and allow you to consider your own wellbeing, in a friendly and relaxed teaching environment. 

Our primary goal is to provide you with courses that promote recovery and self-management so that you learn how to build resilience and manage your own wellbeing. As such, all of our courses are co-produced and co-delivered by experts by profession as well as experts by experience, meaning you will be able to see how others have improved their own wellbeing too.

About Recovery

Recovery is about having hope and aspiration that you will, and can, take your life where you want it to go.

Our courses follow a strengths-based approach, focusing on empowerment, resilience and gaining control over life’s challenges. Our courses teach self-management and follow the recovery principles below.:
