This podcast is heartwarming. For any child struggling in any way, this conversation will give you fresh hope. Hannah Clarke talks us about animal assisted therapy, trauma and EMDR, as we wander through the goats, chickens, pig, geese and more. It’s a great insight into the therapy room and the world of a child.

Animal Assisted Psychotherapy – Who, What and Why

Animal-assisted psychotherapy is on the rise. But what does it really entail, and who can it help? In this article (written for PESI UK) Hannah Clarke, explains the animal ‘magic’ – from establishing trust to exploring projections, and the transformative power of limbic resonance.

Get ahead of anxiety!

How do you spot anxiety in a child before it becomes a problem?

  • What do you do about it?
  • What help is available?
  • What can we do at home? – so much, very easily!

Tony France answers all those questions. This is one of those podcasts that everyone should hear.  Tony brings insight after insight and leaves you feeling empowered.

Schools Partnership Programme

With increased requests for direct therapeutic support in schools for vulnerable pupils we, at Headsight, soon realised that there was a limit to what could be provided on a direct service basis. We also recognise that the most trusted adults in a child’s life and those who spend the most time with them are the most likely to support positive change.

  • A training and qualifications programme for staff across the school.
  • Regular supervision and reflective practice sessions.
  • Access to additional in- school and outdoor support for vulnerable pupils.
