At Catchpoint we’ve dedicated 17 years to honing the development of therapeutic support for adoptive families.

We believe that every family is unique and deserves help that is specific to their individual needs, so although we specialise in working with adoptive families, we do understand that other families with children who have experienced trauma need us too.

Are you a step, foster or kinship family?

Have a look at Rosalee’s story and you’ll see that regardless of the make-up of your family, we’ll be happy to welcome you at Catchpoint.

Extraordinary Help for Extraordinary People

As a parent, you have certain expectations. We’re sure one of those expectations includes enjoying a special bond with your child. You want to relax and observe them every day, growing in confidence and mastering different abilities. You want to see them play, hear their laughter and give and receive lots of affection.

But for some, the reality can be very different. Parenting a child who has suffered early trauma can be tough and even with the best love and nurturing in the world, things don’t always go according to plan. We know that it can be a very overwhelming and isolating experience for you. You may be struggling alone with your child’s anxiety and stress, challenging behaviour or fear of trust.

We know that there are many reasons why adoptive and birth families have this experience, so whatever the difficulty is, we can definitely help.

You can put your trust in us because you’ll be provided with a proven and extensive range of help tailored for you and your child. Everyone in your child’s community, including school staff and social workers will be included to make sure that every area of your child’s therapy works collaboratively.

You’ll be a partner in your child’s therapeutic journey, with fun, shared activities like making music, art and playing games. If you have a teenager, the therapist will engage them with any particular interests they have.

We’ll also identify and put in place the support and therapy your child will need in the future.

You’ll be able to look forward to having a healthy, lasting bond with your child, and your child will be able to receive and enjoy the stability, safety and contentment you wish for them.
