A Therapeutic Service Specialising in Abuse & Trauma


Children & Adolescents

Butterflies is a Therapeutic Service based in East Sussex working with Children, Young People and their families that have experienced Abuse and Trauma in their lives.  Our ethos is that we provide a Child Centred Practice underpinned by Articles 12 & 13 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which are crucial for children to develop their full potential.


Our therapeutic approach is grounded in the use of creative therapeutic based techniques, i.e.: sand tray, clay, storytelling, painting, puppets and games in supporting children and young people to communicate.  We also use Equine Assisted Therapy/Learning and the CATT Technique when working with PTSD and Complex PTSD.    


Butterflies accepts referrals from various external agencies such as Foster Care, Social Services, CAMHS, GP’s and Schools.  Families can self-refer to our service.





We work with male and female qualified practitioners who together bring a vast amount of clinical experience working with children and young people

Safe and Ethical practice is a priority. Butterflies adheres to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework and all therapists undertake training in safeguarding procedures, are Insured and are DBS advanced checked
