About Us

The TRC exists to help children recover from trauma. Trauma is defined as an experience which is overwhelming and hinders the child’s safety and security. Trauma causes a child or young person to feel terrified and powerless. At the TRC we facilitate recovery for children and young people as they process trauma, and support them as they piece their lives back together until a wholeness can be found. We also work to support parents/carers, as well as training and supporting teachers to form a holistic support service.

We believe that children and young people can recover from trauma.

In Bath, Oxford and Guernsey we provide play, art and creative therapy for children and their carers who are facing trauma and extreme challenges.

Aims of the Therapy Centres:
We want to help children process what is going on in their world.
We want to help them find their voice.
We want to give them the time and space to work out what they are feeling, and why, so they can be empowered into a positive, bright future.
We want to see trauma symptoms reduced in their every day life and future.

We achieve this by:
Using play, art, and music to help children process, think, learn and speak.
Ensuring that every child is valued, cared for, listened to, and that their feelings are validated and processed.
Providing a network of excellent therapists, carers and other professionals, all committed to proactive intervention, giving children the possibility of a fantastic future.
Believing that recovery from trauma is possible and that overcoming challenges leads to a better future.
Believing it’s worth it for each individual child.

The TRC Treehouse Project is our specialist provision for children and young people and their carers who have been rescued from human trafficking. We have a team of people who are trained in providing therapeutic aftercare as well as a mentoring team.

Oakside Creative Assessment Project is an intensive assessment programme for children who are struggling with mainstream education or struggling with complex trauma symptoms. They may be seen as children and young people who are defiant, non engaging or phobic. We are focused on the child recovering from this trauma. At the end of the 12 week assessment we are able to create a treatment plan for the child, identifying key struggles and the needed treatment and intervention to enable them to engage in their appropriate education setting.

The TRC Training Centre underpins the three projects to ensure a constant provision of excellent training for all our teams and other professionals from key experts in trauma recovery in the UK.
