Our Approach

Supporting aspirations and ambitions

We want our children and young people to have the support they need to thrive

We recognise that because of disrupted attachments and severe trauma in their lives many, children and young people are left feeling angry and confused about their life experiences.

They may feel let down and distrustful of adults. This can led to anti-social behaviour, risk taking, and issues with mental health.

We want our children and young people to have every opportunity to integrate into their chosen community having received the therapy-based support they need.

We do not believe that any one model or tool holds the answer to supporting our children and young people in reaching their full potential. Therefore, we provide a holistic, all-round assessment of a young person, putting them at the heart of all planning and decision making.

Our team work hard to establish positive therapeutic relationships with our children and young people, supporting them to work through their complex, and individual challenges.

If you would like to discuss the needs of a specific child or young person, or talk through a referral you are working with, please contact Judith Beaumont on 07387 416924 or email her on referrals@nextstepindependence.co.uk.
