Broad Horizons is the only center in the region specialising in developmental and relational trauma for children and young people. We focus in working with complex issues such as developmental trauma, complex post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociation and adaptive attachments in children and families where the child is looked after in care or in post-adoption. However, this is by no means exclusive and self-referrals for adults or children are very much welcomed. all referrals are reviewed by the Clinical Lead to ensure that the appropriate therapist and skill set is matched to whatever the presenting needs.
We pride ourselves on adopting a holistic family approach to our work with children and young people and are inclusive of multi-agency working and being proactive as part of the team around the child and family to provide the best possible outcomes for children, young people and families.

Many children and young people displaying trauma symptoms can go unnoticed. The physical and mental health difficulties relating to trauma are huge; and with children and young people spending 190 day of the year in school; the school environment is crucial in both healing and supporting these children. Our training will help provide your school with an understanding of: Trauma: How trauma impacts children and young people within the school setting. Signs and symptoms of trauma: How to manage a stress response. Stabilisation and regulation within the school setting. The importance of self-care.
