The TRC was founded in Bath in 2011 by Betsy de Thierry, in order to see children recover from trauma.
The TRC employs creative psychotherapists who specialise in the Trauma Recovery approach in order to help children & young people process their trauma and support them as they piece their lives back together until a wholeness can be found.
The parents and carers engage in a Psychoeducation course called ‘Parenting the traumatised child’ which provides therapeutic support, and an understanding of how trauma impacts a child’s brain, with helpful strategies for the home life. This course is based on the book: The Simple Guide to Child Trauma (Betsy de Thierry, 2017).
We hold as a high value our work and support of the parents/carers, and our experience of supporting teachers to form a holistic support service. Oakside Creative Education Centre is a project that has been formed to provide additional support for the most vulnerable children and young people.
We are excited about the interconnectedness of the TRC Therapy centre and Oakside Creative, with the TRC Training Centre providing excellent cutting edge training in trauma recovery.
