Local Authority Adoption Services
This group of local authorities provides adoption services and adoption support to children and families. We have an established relationship with them and provide psychological consultancy in support of their work with families both pre- and post-adoption via the Adoption Support Fund. We are providing expert DDP Consultancy to them in support of their goal to become a DDP certified organisation.
NHS, West Midlands
We are the provider of psychological and psychiatric assessment and therapy for Doctors and Dentists in training within the midlands region. Trainees may be referred after consultation with the Professional Support Unit (PSU).
Family Assessment Centres
We provide therapeutic services and psychological support to parents undergoing residential assessments working closely with the team to identify realistic goals and provide psychological interventions to residents independent of their assessment according to need.
Local Authority Fostering Services
We provide psychologists to work within our local fostering services to provide consultancy to staff to inform decision making, professional supervision, run therapeutic groups, and provide support to professional foster carers.
Adoption Support Fund
The Adoption Support Fund (ASF) was established because many adoptive families need some kind of therapeutic support following adoption. Through access to the ASF, local authorities are able to commission therapeutic support that is free at the point of access to families who require it. We strongly believe in working in close collaboration with our colleagues in the statutory sector to provide a reliable and cohesive network around the families we support.
Local Authority – Services to Schools for Looked-after children
We have worked closely with local authority children’s services for a number of years, helping to develop and support an attachment aware schools initiative for schools in their areas. We provide training workshops, assessment and consultation for schools looking to broaden their understanding of trauma and attachment and embed this into their policy and practice.
Mental Health Charity
We work closely with the staff and clients of this local charity and offer a selection of consultation and liaison, clinical supervision, group case consultations and formulations, psychological assessments, psychological intervention, psychological skills groups and service development.
