The Apricot Centre (CIC) Wellbeing Service (visit website) for Children and Families works with young people and families ‘on the edge of potential’. We think that wherever there are trouble and difficulties, creative solutions can also be found. Our therapists work in teams across East Anglia (Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk), and soon in South Devon. We offer a range of specialist therapies, assessments, and also less intensive farm activities which foster wellbeing.
Our professional services are offered within a softer non-clinical atmosphere, to help young people and families with real difficulties, have an enriching, creative and even fun experience.
Many of our practitioners have experience working in CAMHS (Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services), and Social Work or Education. The Apricot Team includes practitioners from different fields such as psychiatry, child psychotherapy, psychology, art & music therapies, play therapy, family & systemic therapies, occupational therapy, social work, and counselling. We also have educational practitioners and skilled mentors able to support young people around life, learning and relationship skills.
