Since 2008, we have been providing services to nurseries, mainstream, specialist and independent schools, pupil-referral units, local authorities, youth justice agencies, NHS trusts, charities, case managers, healthcare providers, adoption support agencies and individual families.
We have a breadth of experience working with children and young people from diverse backgrounds – and with a range of conditions and difficulties. These include, but are not limited to:
We exist for one very simple reason…
...to help children and young people
to fulfil their potential and SHINE!
To act in the best interests of children and young people and to treat them and their families with honesty, empathy and respect.
To work as a team, and with other relevant parties, to provide an holistic approach to service delivery.
To share our knowledge and skills with those responsible for the care and education of children and young people.
To ensure that our services are tailored to the specific needs and abilities of the child or young person.
To deliver high-quality services, through clinical excellence, improvement and innovation.
All therapists are employees of the company, registered with the HCPC and relevant professional bodies and subject to enhanced DBS checks.
We actively promote professional development, through structured clinical supervision, peer support and training.
