Treehouse Practice

Treehouse Practice is a specialised, team-based service for young people aged 0-25 years who have experienced trauma and adversity in their lives, and the adults who support them.

We believe that all children and young people need to feel loved, safe, seen and supported in their relationships and that this is the basis of recovery from trauma. We understand the impact of trauma on childhood development and we support other adults in young people’s lives to become more trauma aware too.

Trauma Sensitive Services for Young People

Our services are available from our therapeutic home in Sandycove, Co. Dublin, and through outreach across the island of Ireland.

Speak to our Team

"Relationships are the agents of change and the most powerful therapy is human love. People, not programmes, change people" - Bruce Perry

Our Experienced & Specialist Team

The company started in 2013 and from the outset strived to hold children’s voices and stories at the heart of what we do. We moved from a psychology practice, to a multi-disciplinary service, to a specialised trauma-focused and attachment-based team in 2018. This decision was guided by a desire to shape and influence change for children who have been hurt and harmed and to build a community of informed, educated and compassionate adults who can help in the repair process.
