Child and adolescent therapy for young people who have experienced abuse and trauma

Child therapy for families, foster carers and adoption agencies in the New Forest, Southampton Hampshire and surrounding Dorset area. Our practice is based on many years of successful interventions between parent or carer, child and therapist. Specialising in abuse and trauma, the process begins with the therapist establishing a warm, trusting and friendly relationship. Our Therapists specialise in helping children who have.........

  • Suffered sexual abuse and domestic violence

  • Experienced neglect, physical and emotional abuse

  • Been affected by bereavement, bullying or divorce

  • Struggled with fostering, adoption, attachment difficulties

  • Exhibited sexually inappropriate behaviour  

Counselling and therapy techniques with proven results that make a difference.

Play Therapy is an effective approach for individual children who have experienced an upsetting event. Parent or carer are regularly updated and progress discussed. Theraplay and DDP are attachment based therapies, which take place between child, parent and therapist and can be particularly useful for fostered and adopted children or birth families, where there has been a difficulty in the family. 

Play Therapy

Play Therapy uses play as a communication tool enabling children who often do not have words to speak about their experiences to begin to make sense of them in a non-threatening and natural way.
