Therapy and Wellbeing for Children, Young People and Families


The Apple Tree Centre provides Counselling, Play Therapy, Art Psychotherapy, Dramatherapy, Family Therapy, Speech Language and Communication Therapy and Autism Support to children and young people up to the age of 25 and their families. We also offer individual and group support for parents and carers, and training, supervision and consultation for professionals.

Latest news:

Professional Training:
We are pleased to be hosting a professional development workshop in February 2019: ‘Exploring the Dynamics of Attachment in Adult Life’, with Eliane Meyer. Places are available and we are accepting bookings through EventBrite.
Please contact us with a brief message if you would be like to be added to the mailing list for future training events.

Referrals and Assessments:
We are usually able to offer an initial consultation to parents or carers within a week of referral. When parents contact us, we will discuss their families’ needs by phone or email and then arrange a more in-depth assessment with the therapist who is most likely to work with them on an ongoing basis. We are currently experiencing a high level of demand for our therapies and appointments will depend on the family’s needs, preferences and availability.

We welcome self-referrals by phone or email, and more details of our referral process are here.

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, including therapy to address trauma, grief, behavioural and attachment difficulties. Please contact us to discuss your requirements, for more information, or to arrange a visit to the Centre.
