The Apple Tree Centre team includes our therapists (including our directors) and our centre manager.
Jenny Reid and Rosie Dymond – Co-Directors
Rosie and Jenny are the directors and co-owners of the Apple Tree Centre. We have developed the service to meet the mission and values which inspired us to open the centre, and we oversee all the work of the centre, including helping to guide families towards the most appropriate form of therapy and responding to concerns that arise between sessions.
Our role now includes recruiting and managing a team of independent Associate Therapists, delivering our core training and CPD events, managing safeguarding concerns, and providing individual Play Therapy and clinical supervision. You can read more about our individual therapeutic work here.
Alongside Fred, our Centre Manager, we are the first point of contact for families and professionals approaching the centre.
