Expert risk assessments of parents where violence or abuse within the family is a concern


In addition to treatment suitability assessments, we offer family safety planning and individually tailored psychotherapy packages for either or both parents to help them:

  • enhance their ability to protect their children
  • prioritise the children's needs
  • reduce the risk of family violence
  • remain free of abusive relationships.

Treatment usually involves weekly sessions of approximately one hour over three to six months at our Saltash premises (though exceptionally we can arrange for sessions to be held elsewhere). Parents are expected to complete straightforward homework assignments between sessions.

Routine feedback is provided to the referrer, and written progress reports can be negotiated as required.
