For when you need understanding
As carers you have an exciting and challenging role that can be both rewarding and frustrating. The aim of Therapeutic Life Story Work is to help you and your child or young person, work together to develop new insight and understanding as to the origins of current feelings and behaviours. This creates the potential for increased confidence and stronger relationships.
Children and young people
Perhaps you feel that no one cares or that those who do don't undestand how you feel. Maybe you don't. Therapeutic Life Story Work (TLSW) gives you a chance to be the explorer of your world, searching for clues as to what has led you to think, feel and act the way you do. We will put all of this information into a book that will be yours to keep and add to as you grow.

The benefits of Therapeutic Life Story Work are both preventative and reparative. In helping the child or young person gain an understanding of their past, in the presence of their carer, placements can be stabalised and relationships strenghthened thus reducing disruption and longer term costs.
