Being approachable and compassionate is as important to us, as being professional.
If you, your child or family have experienced trauma, it’s important that you feel comfortable during the time we spend together. That’s why we want to introduce our team of specialists here. We’ve even published some information especially to help young people feel confident about meeting us. (Click here to read our child friendly page or Click here to read our teenager friendly page).
We also regularly partner with other teams, including legal teams, social services and charities. Getting to know our team is the first step to working together to reduce the impact of trauma on individual lives.
Life is messy and complicated, so we keep things simple.
