Children’s Therapy

Our children’s service, works systemically so parents/carers and key professionals need to be prepared to become involved with the intervention to support the child/young person’s healing process.

The support we offer includes; 1:1 therapeutic wellbeing support, group work, therapy, 1:1 parenting support, trauma informed parenting group and support to key professionals.

We accept referrals from; professionals, parents, carers, relatives and young people who wish to self-refer. You don’t need to ask for specifically wellbeing support, therapy or group work as we understand each child/young person is different, we carefully screen each referral to identify which service best meets the child/young person’s needs.

If you are a professional please use the referral form below. If you are a parent or carer and would prefer to speak to us please call 01226 320140.
