A COUPLE wanting to improve their work-life balance have chosen Skipton as the base for their private therapy practice, Being Better, which specialists in treating addictions and offers a range of wellbeing treatments.

Husband and wife team, David and Corinne Yeadon, have based their new practice at High Street House in Skipton,

It provides a private, confidential and discreet therapy service for those looking to simply change bad habits, to those wishing to explore deeper issues.

Corinne has over twenty years’ professional experience working with people suffering from loss, trauma and addiction.

But it was a re-evaluation of personal circumstances which prompted David to leave his job as a pensions consultant and retrain as a therapeutic practitioner in 2011.

Corinne said: “Due to changes in public funding, people are increasingly choosing to go down the private therapy route in order to enhance their wellbeing. Our High Street House location in Skipton is perfect, as it is central yet discreet enough for those wanting to preserve their anonymity.

Andrew Mear, managing director of Eagerlux, owners of High Street House, said: “Being Better is the latest company to join our recently refurbished modern suite of offices.

"It’s great to be able to support new businesses launching in Skipton, and I think Being Better’s proposition and its central accessible location means that it should do very well.”
