About Us

The Indian Almond Tree in full growth provides solace from natural elements like the sun, wind & rain; its leaves are a mix of green & dark red, & the actual almond seed is hard & green in colour – difficult to get through but possible to break. The Almond Tree Wellness Center originated from this concept where a single tree provides refuge for many & sometimes talking about sensitive issues are difficult but very possible, with the right approach.

Sexuality is central & an all-pervasive theme of human existence…
a fundamental aspect of human nature

Levay, Baldwin & Baldwin (2015)

At our center, we offer a safe & confidential environment to discuss any issues without fear, judgement or shame; we encourage our clients to share any relationship or sexual related issues to improve their well-being which is very important to us. Whether you require a consultation on your own or with your spouse our professional counsellor will be able to listen & cater to the concerns raised.
