Meet the Team

Our involvement supports emotional well-being, mental health, behaviour and learning on an individual, group and whole school or organisational basis. We work using trauma informed and person-centred approaches that draw on the strengths of each individual child or young person to find what works best for them. Our team are specialists working within the fields of trauma, attachment, adoption and sleep, where we develop and grow our evidence-based psychological approaches and therapeutic interventions.

Our team work with you in different ways, including face-to-face, over the phone and using video calls.

In recent years we have developed new ways of working, including greater use of digital tools such as virtual consultation, some assessment and online meetings.

When we work with children, young people, their families and settings we discuss how best to work with them, and make person-centred decisions based on what will provide the best outcomes.

We seek feedback and continually review how we work in order to further develop our service offer that includes face to face, digital and hybrid working (in other words a mixture of both).
