The charity started its life in 1974 and has continued to evolve over the years.  We took the the decision to rename the charity from SWADS to IPSUM  as we felt this better reflected the new direction that the charity was taking. Our core strengths in talking and creative therapies gave us the foundations upon which to develop our services. 

IPSUM is a latin word meaning 'self'  this translated our to 'self care' which better reflects the charity that we are today.

Over recent years IPSUM has built on that reputation to develop a range of artistic therapies, broadening its operation to compliment its core professional counselling:

  • Therapeutic Art and Music         

  • Music Therapy    

  • Creative Writing

  • Meditation & Mindfulness

  • Professional Training
