Our Approach

Our C.A.T.C.H therapeutic model of supporting young people brings together elements from the models and theoretical approaches used in the field of developmental trauma*.

Connect – understand, accept & empathise, avoid shame
Active – activities such as running, dancing, singing
Together – co-regulate & respond to attachment seeking behaviours
Co-construct – curious & help the person understand experiences
Happy – rewarding, laugh & have reciprocal fun

Our homes are about acknowledging and accepting the stresses and anxieties many of the young people have, and reflecting on them through an engaging, curious, fun and active environment.

We want to help the young people learn about their internal alarm clock (the one that triggers states of stress) and support them to recognise and learn more acceptable ways of dealing with it.
