Parent

We offer a range of services for young people aged 11 to 16 years, from Derry, Limavady and Strabane , who have or are being affected by domestic violence.  Even when children don’t witness domestic abuse, they usually know it is happening and it can affect their emotional well being.

It is difficult to see your child distressed and you may feel that your child requires additional support to express their feelings.  We can help introduce therapy in a fun and engaging  way and support and help your child overcome.

We work with children from around 11 up to age 16 using play therapy techniques and creative arts and talking for older children and young people.  All the sessions are held locally and are safe and young person centred.

Our therapists are trained psychologists and psychotherapists who are greatly experienced in helping young people who have lived with domestic violence.  We are expert providers of specialised domestic violence services and provide individual as well as group work.  Group sessions are once per week, for 10 weeks, and last 2 hours.  Individual appointments vary but are also usually once a week and last 1 hour.

If you would like to refer your child to us directly, please download the referral form.  If you have questions, or would like help with filling in this form, contact us and we can advise you.  Please email on [email protected]  or telephone us on 028 7141 6800.

Alternatively, your GP, social worker or other health professional can make the referral on your behalf or help with completing the form.
