About our service

Psychological Assessment and Therapy Service (PATS). We work alongside:
- the Complex Trauma Network
- all of Health and Community Services
- third sector organisations coming into contact with survivors of childhood trauma
Our team includes 4 Community Navigators based within the wider team of PATS.
We'll treat you with care, consideration, dignity and respect and offer choices
in the service we provide wherever possible.
