Here at Broad Horizons we welcome referrals from professionals, adult self-referrals, parents and carers of children and young people. We offer a range of Psychotherapy, Therapeutic Interventions, Assessments, Clinical Supervision and Trainings all under one roof.
Broad Horizons is one of the original centers 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 our Clinical Lead to ensure that the appropriate therapist and skill set is matched to your 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.

Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
