The Child Therapy Service CIC is a social, emotional, and mental health education and support platform, designed to improve the emotional health and life chances of young people.
In 2021, 100,000 children aged 6-16 years old were referred to CAMHs each month. The Child Therapy Service’s goal is to prevent these referrals, through educating and supporting children, families, and professionals on effective evidence-based emotional health modalities. Through their on-line platform of therapeutic resources, training, and support programmes – they are reinventing children’s mental health services.
Tracy Chadwick is the Founder of the Child Therapy Service CIC. Tracy is a passionate, focused and determined Social, Emotional and Mental Health Educational Consultant, Therapeutic Practitioner, Teacher, and Trainer – with nearly 2 decades of experience in supporting children, families, and professionals.
Tracy set up this service when her son began to struggle with his mental health – and received nothing but waiting lists and closed doors. Why? Because her son was neurodivergent and the services available only supported neurotypical children.
There needed to be another way – one that met the emotional needs of the individual – not the label. That other way is the Child Therapy Service CIC.
The Child Therapy Service CIC aims to create a platform of services that supports any young person experiencing emotional ill-health. They aim to do this by offering instant access to evidence-based effective emotional health modalities for the child, family, healthcare, and education professional. Facilitating collaboration and creating opportunities of empowerment.
In addition to having a positive impact on the lives of young people, the Child Therapy Service CIC will also have a wider impact on the lives of families and professionals, including:
- increased school attendance and academic progress for the child
- reduced one-to-one staff provision in schools
- improved well-being of staff and increased retention
- improved well-being of the family unit
- reduced the need for flexi-timetables
- increased capacity for the parent/carer to return to work – because they don’t have to take their child into school on an unlawful flexi-timetable.
