Adopted and looked after children
We recognise how challenging it can be, helping children to recover from traumatic experiences. We work closely with families and other professionals.
Senara Services include:
Occupational therapy and Sensory Integration therapy
Specialist educational support
Adoption support for professionals and parents
Training for professionals and parents
Our therapist’s are experienced in working with children and young people who have trauma and attachment difficulties. Our services provide targeted support, optimising the fostering and adoption process. We work closely with other services, professionals and agencies involved with the child.
We consider the whole child and their environment when thinking about their strengths and needs. This includes; current function (home & school) peer and family relationships, trauma history, attachment relationships and neurodevelopmental factors. The Adoption Support Fund (ASF) was introduced to provide therapeutic support for adoptive and specialist guardianship families.

I have had the pleasure of working with both Morwenna and Tamsin over the past 4 years. Senara is truly a wonderful service that supports so many children and their families who have benefitted from sensory integration therapy with the continued support that they provide to parents and other professionals. Over the years I have learnt so much from them both as professionals and through the work they have provided to the families who access them.
Senara is unique and I would highly recommend anyone accessing them.
