Self referrals:
Update 23rd June 2022:

Due to overwhelming demand, we are unable to accept new self-referrals for the foreseeable future. 


We are looking for qualified, experienced counsellors and therapists to join our team. Applicants must be able to provide online therapy during the current period, with the potential to move to face-to-face work at our centre in Sheffield in line with our Covid risk reduction procedures.

At the moment we are particularly seeking therapists who are able to support parents or younger children, but experienced therapists from all relevant disciplines are also welcome to apply. For further information, please see our recruitment page which includes a link to an application form.

Professional Referrals:

We are happy to accept funded professional referrals, including referrals to our Ofsted registered Adoption Support Service. We offer an integrated package of support, and are able to design tailored interventions to meet the needs of specific families, including therapy to address trauma, grief, behavioural and attachment difficulties. Please contact us to discuss your requirements or for more information.

Support for children and young people affected by sexual abuse – pilot ended
Update 24th May 2022:

We have been providing a small pilot service to support children and young people in Sheffield who have been affected by sexual abuse. This work has been funded by Sheffield City Council. We are extremely disappointed that this funding is ending and so we are unable to accept new referrals under this scheme.

We are happy to accept referrals from professionals with another source of funding.
