This is achieved through providing 1:1 therapy that meets each young person’s needs (here-and-now issues as well as those recorded in their plans), taking account of their background; help them understand and manage the impact of any experience of complex trauma, abuse, or neglect; and help them develop the resilience and skills that prepare them to live independently as an adult.
Alongside 1:1 therapeutic work with young people, Therapists work alongside colleagues from the Therapy Team to provide 1:1 staff support sessions and facilitate group spaces for the Residential and Community Teams.
They are passionate about learning and development and committed to providing an outstanding experience for all.
