ame therapy

Ame therapy and consulting offer therapeutic short breaks to families who might be experiencing difficulties. Difficulties could include eating disorders, self-harm, behavioural issues, ADHD, attachment disorder, stress, anxiety, depression, school refusal, learning disabilities and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. During these short breaks, a specifically tailored programme of educational seminars, individual and/or family session work, group workshops and clinical screening/psychometric testing sessions run. The programme of events is formed to address specific clinical presentation and is designed to help families and children understand what might be going on in order to help to identify ways of improving the situation. All programmes are run by a multidisciplinary team of senior clinicians specialising in your area of need and we work together to provide insight, strategies and support. The clinical team include a Senior Family and Systemic Psychotherapist, a Senior Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Psychotherapist, a Senior CAMHS Psychologist, two lead occupational therapists, a senior learning disabilities psychotherapist (as well as a LD nurse), senior mental health nurse and a BACP Registered Art Therapist. When working with schools we also utilise the assistance of a former executive head teacher and educational consultant. Our team have training in parenting assessments, Sensory Integration screening, Play Therapy/Theraplay/Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, CBT, Family & Systemic approaches, psychometric diagnostics, psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapy, CAT, DBT, Narrative Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Schema Focussed Therapy, Non-Violent Resistance interventions, Solution Focussed Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation Therapy (EMDR), Mentalisation Based therapy and more. We operate primarily using a multidisciplinary systemic formulation model, within which we would produce a working formulation for you to take home and utilise, to be followed-up with a Skype consultation at about six weeks post intervention. We would inform our formulation using various clinically indicated screening tools, individual/family specific work and educational seminars that aim to best help the family to get the most from their experience with us, but also to offer invaluable guidance on how to get the most from existing NHS and allied services.
