Clouds therapeutic services provide help and support for children and young people who have experienced difficult times through early trauma abuse and separations by facilitating a full range of assessment and interventions.
As specialists in attachment, Clouds Therapy aims to equip children and young people to form and maintain meaningful reciprocal relationships to understand their past, live in the present and look forward to their future.
It is an ever-evolving service which is sensitive to the needs of the children and young people for whom the individual interventions are tailored.
Meeting the mental health needs of young people in the care system continues to be a prominent driver of government policy and practice guidance. Clouds will work collaboratively with local CAMHs services and other specialist teams to help those young people who are struggling with mental health issues.
This will be written into the care plans for them and they will have full encouragement from staff to gain the help needed to gain recovery for their mental health, we will be promoting at all times a range of treatment options for them which they have the right to access while at Stenson Lodge.
At Clouds Children’s Care we believe it is essential to undertake an assessment at referral, intake and at strategic points during the placement. The initial assessment will incorporate key domains of the young person’s function and development needs including educational, emotional/behavioural, social and learning skills.
The initial assessment period’s findings will inform the placement plan, treatment goals and educational needs and crucially, will begin to define parameters for outcome.
Childhood & adolescence is characterised by development and change; placement plans must reflect and accommodate these changes in the light all information available and with access and support from staff from external agencies like CAMHS to support Children on a 1-1 basis when needed. Young People will be supported to attend any appointments with these professional services.
We at Clouds have trained staff and therapists to help children through their journey, with the help of life coaching, NLP and recovery coaching. Every child’s needs are individually assessed to ensure that the right care is planned to deal with areas such as, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), autism, anxiety, stress, depression, self esteem and other emotional behavioural disorders.
