The work of the team was published this year following an invitation to contribute a chapter to the book, “Creative Therapies for Complex Trauma.” edited by Anthea Hendry.  The book includes chapters from teams across the country leading innovative practice with children exhibiting developmental trauma.


The team are regularly requested to teach at conferences and training.  In the last 18 months Sarah, our Head of Therapy, has presented at an international conference in New York, a national conference in Newcastle and on the MA SEN at the University of Leeds.  She currently facilitates the Neuroscience Research Reading Group at the Northern School for Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy.


The team are passionate about supporting the development of both our individual disciplines and the practice of therapy with children.  We are currently exploring options for research and collaborations with academia, with a number of the team interested in further study at doctorate level.  As a clinical team with a wealth of experience, well-established and varied clinical practice and 12 years of observations with a distinct client group, we have a lot to offer others researching in this field.
