Professional Consultations

We offer specialist consultation delivered by our experienced team who are all qualified in the field of childhood trauma and abuse.

Professional Consultation

Please note: that in order to utilise this service you have to submit a request for support form and it must be accepted by the triage team – these can be found by visiting the ‘request for support’ tab on our website.

Professional consultation can take the form of;
  • A multi-professional meeting relating to the child/family.

  • An individual consultation with a lead professional regarding the child/family. 

  • A smaller systemic meeting of key professionals and parents/carers. 

Aims and outcome of engaging in professional consultation:
  • To make a full systemic assessment of the child/young person and their family in order to decide on an appropriate action plan.

  • To advise on workable trauma-informed approaches/techniques to help support the child.

  • To take away a trauma informed plan and resources to support the child/YP,the family and your work with them.

Consultations will be facilitate by either telephone phone calls or a Teams meeting. During the consultation we will discuss the issues and concerns that are affecting the child/YP. Ideas and suggestios will be shared about trauma informed practice that will support the child/YP and this will then be followed by a plan and accompanying resources. This may be the end of the consultation process or should you want one or more follow-up sessions these can be booked at the end of the meeting.
