Therapeutic Fostering

For young people who’ve experienced difficult childhoods, therapy can be a way to help them express their emotions and overcome the challenges they face. That’s why providing therapeutic foster care for young people and therapeutic consultations for carers is at the heart of what we do here.

The ISP therapy team Our highly experienced team represent a wide cross-section of clinical expertise, including, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy, Systemic Family Therapy, Cognitive/Behavioural Therapy, Play Therapy, Psychotherapy, Art Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy. Our Therapists’ aims We aim to offer young people a time where they can reflect on their experiences, and discover their feelings. Therapy is a place where they can share their fears, fantasies, dreams and aspirations without fear of ridicule or repercussion, whilst experiencing a trusting and safe long-term relationship with an adult. Each young person is treated individually and offered a tailored therapy programme that is suited to their personal needs. Therapy may involve assessment only, short-term assistance or long-term help conducted over several years. Each centre offers well-resourced therapy rooms so young people can be helped close to their foster homes in a familiar environment. In addition, we also regularly provide therapeutic support for carers and staff.
