As a foster carer you become the main agent of change in a child or young person’s life. We know it isn’t always easy looking after a child but we believe that understanding what can lie beneath can make all the difference.
How our Therapy Service works with you
You will have the opportunity to sit down and talk to our therapists about your foster child. Here you can discuss and difficulties you may be having with them, our therapists will work together with you to help you to look underneath the challenging behaviours, to understand why it is happening and what could be the cause.
You’ll be invited to attend Team Parenting meetings, these meetings are an opportunity for you and everyone else who is involved in the child’s or young person’s care to come together and share their experiences and observations in a collective to find the best outcomes and solutions.

These are one and two day training courses that are specifically designed to develop your therapeutic knowledge and skill, this then enables you to gain new insights into how a foster child or young person might be behaving and give you to the tools to find new ways of dealing with it.
