The Reason Coffee Shop and Book Store is run by Reason and Science LTD.
We are a social enterprise business raising money to help people attend the Thrive Programme and a friendly place to come have a coffee, a chat and maybe to buy a book. We welcome every one in our shop.
Thrive is a revolutionary psychological training programme that equips people with the self-awareness and in-depth knowledge of fundamental psychological principles and skills that they need to flourish in life. When people are thriving, they are living their life to the full.
The Thrive Programme can help with many things including depression, fears, phobias, low self esteem, confidence, plus many more.
We are also members of The Green Party and promote evidence based policies for a sustainable future.
