Clare Dyas, Founder
Clare is a trained and qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. Having done many years of therapy of various different kinds, Clare wanted to give something back to the wider community. She used to do more spiritual healing but has found that counselling is more accessible to many people. Clare founded Space for You in 2009, in response to a perceived lack in service provision for a friend with mental/ emotional health issues. The charity has since supported over 250 people and has recently opened at it’s new venue in Penzance.

He was a co founder of Bosence Farm Community and was the driving force in creating Boswyns, Cornwall’s only residential detox facility.
