A package of therapy can be offered directly to young people (and their parents/carers), designed according to their assessed needs. Theraplay and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) are available, in addition to CBT, EMDR, narrative therapy and systemic therapy. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly, at home or in a clinic.
Cognitive and psychological assessments can also be undertaken with young people, including psychometric measures of mood, daily functional skills, and AIM 2 assessments. Comprehensive psychological formulations can be developed to improve the understanding of a young person and to inform decision-making around their care and the support they need.
Bespoke consultations can be offered to provide a reflective space to consider a young person's needs and any worries or concerns with regards their presentation. Consultations can be used to develop understanding, as well as to consider specific challenges or issues and how to respond to them. They may be one-offs, a series or as part of a drop-in clinic, and may be attended by individuals or whole networks. Topics can include:
Management of emotions Emotion regulation Contact
Stealing, lying, aggression Self-harm or suicidal thinking Life story work
Sexualised behaviour Trauma symptoms (i.e. nightmares) Transitions
Educational needs Diagnoses inc. ASD & ADHD Loss & bereavement

Many young people unfortuntely have experiences in their lives that leave them with complex and often overwhelming emotions that they struggle to deal with. Such experiences may range from difficulties in their relationships through to traumas including accidents, losses/bereavements, neglect or different forms of abuse. Each of these experiences can have a profound impact on the young person's behaviour and ability to function at home or school, leaving them in need of specialist therapeutic support. Equally, parents/carers or professionals involved in their care may be left needing specialist support to allow them to offer the therapeutic parenting that these young people may need to heal from their experiences.
