What We Do
The Helios Centre is a specialist holistic health charity in Kings Cross, which has grown over 30 years in response to the AIDS crisis.
Helios Centre aims to bring about improvements in the way that people deal with some of the more challenging health issues, particularly those from marginalised and deprived groups.
We endeavour to help people develop a better quality of life by providing a range of holistic therapies and support to meet people’s individual needs.
We see an average of 140 clients per week delivering 160 one hour therapy sessions. We also run support groups, and provide advocacy for clients in need. Our clients are diverse, with a high percentage who are LGBT and from an ethnic minority.
Helios began in 1976 in a room in Warren Street and in 1983, we registered as a charity. Helios work was always in the area of personal development. When HIV and AIDs began affecting some of its clients it responded by setting up a complementary health clinic looking at innovative ways to support the immune system and reduce stress.
In time Helios became a leader in this field. Research by Professor Colin Francome of Middlesex University in 1996 found that Helios clients had a greater life expectancy than a comparative cohort. He attributed this to the positive outlook and its affect on the immune system.
Helios has gone to expand it knowledge and service and in 2001, moved to larger premises its current address in Judd Street where it has been able to expand and solidify its work.
