Behaviour change

Sustainable recovery

We deliver structured therapeutic programmes (digitally and face-to-face) in our supported houses and in partnership with health and social care treatment services.

These programmes combine evidence-based psychosocial techniques with the lived experience of former service users to achieve sustainable behavioural change in people with complex needs.

People are encouraged to develop an understanding of the underlying causes of grief and trauma, build resilience and develop the life skills and self-knowledge to overcome their problems. We also encourage people to get involved in community-based support groups to build their connections.

We incorporate a number of core disciplines and build upon traditional, evidence-based practice including:

  • Asset Based Community Development (ABCD)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Trauma Informed delivery

Our programmes are delivered by highly-trained professional staff, recovery coaches and volunteers who believe passionately in giving everyone the best possible opportunity to change their lives.
