Child Therapy Explained
Family Futures provides an integrated multi-disciplinary therapy service incorporating a variety of therapy techniques and practices including Child Psychiatry, Child Psychology, Child Psychotherapy, Theraplay and much more. All our work is based on evidence from medical research, scientific study and clinical experience.
Our child therapy approach begins on the premise that children, who as infants or young children have experienced some form of trauma, can be thought of as developmentally traumatised, and that every aspect of a child’s development is impacted by poor parenting or trauma. Therefore, we assess not only behavioural development but also sensory, emotional and cognitive development as well. Based on this, Family Futures has developed our own multi-disciplinary treatment service called Neuro-Physiological Psychotherapy’ (NPP).
