Our therapists are all child-centred in their approach and often use creative therapies and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Things we can help with
We help children, young people, and families struggling with:
How we work
We aim to respond within 48 hours of your initial contact.
First, we arrange a 1 hour consultation session with parents or caregivers of the family (this will usually be within 7-10 days of your first contact).
After the consultation we help you to decide which type of therapy would be most helpful, based on the age and presenting issues of your child and the needs of your family.
Therapy and counselling sessions last for 45-50 minutes and the number of sessions will be dependent on child/ family needs. To give you an idea of the number of sessions, if your child is having regular therapy with us, we tend to work in 6-12 week blocks with regular reviews.
Therapy sessions are confidential between the therapist and the child or young person (with certain child protection exceptions which we will discuss with you). The therapist will be able to give you general feedback about how your child is getting on and it is important to us that we work collaboratively with parents and caregivers.
Our therapists work from a number of different venues.
Workshops for families and young people
Throughout the year we deliver parent support and family workshops for small groups on a number of different themes.
Bucks Family Network workshops are delivered by therapists with experience of delivering training and facilitating groups. Our workshops aim to help parents and carers become more confident in their parenting roles and to help build positive relationships within families.
