Who we are
All our staff have been trained in Open Dialogue – the first to be trained in the NHS. This includes psychiatrists, therapists, nurses, and support workers.
We are trained to a foundation level qualification in family therapy and we are all registered with the Academy of Peer-Supported Open Dialogue. The training involves aspects of family therapy as well as mindfulness and other approaches.
