Bespoke consultation sessions for groups

We are  aware that not every challenge a group is facing can be resolved through the website or us offering advice over email or on the phone. Some issues, such as significant disagreements within the group  around implementing boundaries, trauma or domestic abuse within the family, require offering more in-depth intervention. We, therefore, now offer groups bespoke consultation sessions which they can access whenever a significant issue arises. Each consultation session is tailored specifically to the needs of the group and the family they support.  

This may include: 

  • Reflective practice sessions 
  • Advisory sessions 
  • Bespoke training and tools 
  • Managing boundaries when challenges arise
  • Planning next steps
