Our specialist services for children who have experienced child sexual abuse aim at breaking the cycles of trauma by stabilising the psychological effects derived from sexual abuse, domestic violence, neglect and physical harm.

We achieve this through the use of a holistic therapeutic environment that focuses on building relationships and attachments to supporting adults. The home environment provides a therapeutic parent-led approach focusing on building resilience, promotion of emotional well-being and coping mechanisms to address powerlessness, anger, betrayal of trust and distorted sexual boundaries.

Our children benefit from an outstanding all-inclusive service comprising nurturing home environments and our own off-site DfE registered schools. As linked-up services driven by a collaborative and robust MDT, this promotes consistency in the delivery of individualised therapeutic care and education plans; enabling the children in our care to feel safe to lessen the effects of trauma so they can meet their developmental milestones.

Our team consists of Registered Regional Managers, Psychologists, Psychodynamic Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Care Staff, Art Therapists, Teaching Staff, Assistant Psychologists and Life Story Practitioners.

As part of our commitment to seamless care, Cambian can offer relevant transition pathways for children who are ready to move on from this service. Our children’s pathway services include foster care or supported accommodation. Nationwide placements are available depending on assessment of needs.
