At Together Tree, we recognise that sometimes it can help professionals to think with others about the needs of a particular child and family, to consider the child and the family’s history, family dynamics and possible treatment.
We offer this service to professionals. This can be a one-off consultation or for more complex cases, more regular meetings.
Helen also offers supervision to practitioners. This includes:
• Theraplay® Supervision to practitioners who have undertaken Theraplay Level One/MIM training and want to develop their skills and also to those who have entered the Theraplay Practicum through the Theraplay Institute and are working towards Foundational Level Practitioner status.
• Supervision to practitioners undertaking therapeutic work with children.
Helen Maund came highly recomm-ended by a Child Psychologist with whom I have previously worked. I had been seeking a therapist who could provide support to a child and carers at very short notice, because the placement was at high risk of breaking down. Helen recognised the urgent need for intervention and responded quickly by gathering together the information she needed and visiting the carers. She very quickly built a good rapport with the carers, such that they soon came to trust her judgement and conclusions regarding what could best assist the child. Helen later produced an assessment report that was both thorough in its scope and precise in its conclusions. She made herself readily available for consultation and support, and attended a professionals meeting at short notice, during which she was child-focussed and was instrumental in determining the best way forward in a difficult situation.
