Transforming troubled lives together
Working with all those made vulnerable by childhood trauma
The Mulberry Bush
Our work transforms the lives of all those affected by childhood trauma, through specialist therapeutic services.
Our belief is that we have something special that we want to share with others and from which many could benefit.
Founded in 1948, we are proud of our strong Therapeutic Community heritage and continue to build on how it informs our practice and services, enhancing the links between; Practice, Teaching and Research.
