Therapeutic Support has become a cornerstone of our offer to young people who are referred to our service, often struggling to cope with traumatic or overwhelming experiences, which can prevent them from being able to engage with preparation for independence. We provide counselling or Dramatherapy, offering young people the opportunity to choose the approach that best suits them. Our therapists tune into young people’s needs, giving them a dedicated space to explore whatever they need to, empowering them to take the lead. The pressure-free approach allows young people to develop an emotional language, make sense of their experiences, and begin to believe in the possibility of a brighter future.
Space and time is given for therapeutic relationship to develop forging a safe environment within which change can be facilitated. Excellent uptake and engagement rates with many service users choosing long term therapy contracts.
Therapists will adapt to meet the client where they feel most comfortable. The safer the client feels the more depth can be explored.
In- House therapy also facilitates consistent and regular engagement.
The therapist will help the young person identify appropriate and achievable goals which enables them to map their progress. Emphasis is placed on building resilience for the future as well as restorative work.
