Therapy and Wellbeing for Children, Young People and Families


The Apple Tree Centre provides age-appropriate creative psychotherapy to children and young people up to the age of 25 and their families. We also offer support for parents and carers, and training, supervision and consultation for professionals.
We are an Ofsted registered Adoption Support Agency as well as offering therapy and support to other young people and families.
As well as supporting children and young people with difficulties including anxiety and depression, low self esteem and self harm, all our therapists specialise in developmental trauma, attachment difficulties, neurodiversity and sexual and gender diversity. Our therapy is not time limited and we are a developmentally informed, client-led service.
