At Facet Therapy, our philosophy is to offer positive, healthy attachment experiences with children & young people that will build connections that mirrors a 'good nurturing parent'. This means we need to be fully attentive and offer respect, kindness, autonomy, warmth, openness, trust and professional integrity. This type of therapeutic relationship will give children & young people the right tools to build upon their developmental foundations.
Ultimately it enables children & young people to have better coping strategies and emotional regulation. They will feel confident to become expressive through art, enhance their colourful imagination and develop a language to express their worries, fears or destructive behaviours in our safe therapeutic space. They too will develop a strong sense of self and the ability to sustain healthier relationships with others.

Our Team works in the best interest of all our clients and everyone using our service can be reassured confidentiality is paramount and respected. However, there may be times when the client’s safety and protection to themselves or others is questioned, and we need to make a judgement based on what is presented. When this occurs, we seek consent from the client in the first instance, and discuss the concern sensitively before any contact is made with external professionals or agencies.
