Free Consultations:
We offer a free initial consultation to parents and carers considering therapy for their children, or to young people seeking therapy for themselves. This is an opportunity for you to meet us and find out more about how we work, as well as talking about the difficulties you or your child are experiencing. We will talk about what changes you are hoping to see through therapy, and which approach is best for you and your family.


CPRT Therapeutic Parenting Group
Our next Child-Parent Relationship Therapy group will begin on Thursday 27th April. This ten week programme trains and supports parents to facilitate ‘special play’ sessions with their own children. This approach has been shown to improve children’s behaviour and self esteem, to help to parents to feel more in control and to develop a better understanding of their children’s feelings and behaviour. Please contact us for more information or to book a free initial consultation.


Professional Referrals:
We are happy to accept professional referrals. We offer an integrated package of support, and are able to design tailored interventions to meet the needs of specific families. Please contact us to discuss your requirements, for more information, or to arrange a visit to the Centre.
