What we do

Supporting parent and infants together

Parent & Infant Psychotherapy is a psychodynamic intervention that works with the parent and infant together. It is designed to address problems in the parent and infant relationship, regulatory disturbances, and to work with parents and infants who want to ensure that their relationship is working in the healthiest way for parent & infant. The word parent refers to the primary caregiver, whether it’s the mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, foster carer, or other person who assumes sole responsibility for the care of the infant.
