  • Specialist pre-adolescent services.

Children and young people living with Solace care are provided with a number of different approaches towards assessment and therapy services which include an array of disciplines and avenues towards therapy some of which include art, music drama, and play, systematic therapy, counselling, and CBT.


Some of the young people and children being cared for in our care homes have faced painful and traumatic experiences in their lives. Repetitive experiences of loss and the dissolution of relationships often results in the emergence of mistrust, making it difficult for children to have belief in the ability of adults regarding their commitment towards adequately being available to care for and tend to their needs. At solace care, we nurture a healthy and safe environment where young people can grow and develop healthy relationships.

The Pathway Through Solace Care

After the children and young people have become accustomed to their placement and have developed trusting relationships with the staff team, psychological assessments can then be conducted followed by the appropriate therapy techniques. The psychological assessment assists us in creating a picture regarding the child's history, personal experiences, emotional, psychological, and cognitive difficulties as well as their resources and strengths. Moreover, the assessment also helps our team to establish an approach that is in line with the right therapeutic practices so that we can effectively address the challenges and difficulties the child may be experiencing.

Our Residential and care staff arrange and coordinate tailored therapy programs for the youth and children, these programs are designed to meet their individual and specific needs.

We retain a diverse panel of consultant therapists together they offer a variety of Therapy orientations and avenues that encompass the following:

  • Child focused therapy .
  • CBT : is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people's difficulties, and so change the way they feel.
  • MUSIC: It can provide children with opportunities for self-expression and communication. Music therapy can also give children the opportunity to identify their strengths, providing a way for them to maintain a sense of self-esteem.
  • DRAMA: is a form of treatment that uses playacting to explore feelings in a safe environment. In drama therapy, participants may use storytelling, improvisation, and performance to solve problems, vent feelings, or work toward emotional goals
  • PLAY: The therapist can then help the child explore emotions and deal with unresolved trauma. Through play, children can learn new coping mechanisms and how to redirect inappropriate behaviors.
  • Mindfulness: The practice of promoting awareness of one's behaviors and thoughts to have autonomy over the emotions that induce these thoughts and subsequent behaviors
  • Art: Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy, where art-making and the creative process are used to help explore the client's thoughts, feelings and emotions.
