Approach to Care
Timeout are a family run organisation and our ethos and philosophy is based on a systemic approach to promoting the child’s emotional well-being. We specialise in 1:1 care in both solo and dual occupancy homes. We ensure that a holistic view is taken to all aspects of the child’s development whether it is in education, therapy or therapeutic care. By tracing the child’s footprint we can gather the necessary information to inform our practice to assist the child’s recovery.
We believe that everyone who is involved in the child’s recovery has an understanding of the impact of abuse and neglect and its demonstration in current behaviours. This is communicated via training, consultation & reflective practice lead by the clinical team.
Children’s therapeutic needs are often most effectively met by the development of a safe, consistent and nurturing relationship with a trusted adult. The promotion of this relationship is the primary therapeutic goal for each child placed.
