The team at BGPS specialise in working with people who have experienced early trauma and are living in temporary hostel or supported accommodation.
Whilst the people living and working in rough sleeping services and experts in complex trauma recognise that much of the suffering that individuals experience is rooted in early traumatic experiences, access to appropriate treatment remains elusive for the vast majority.
Reasons for poor access to treatment include: the traditional split between mental health and substance use services, beliefs among service providers that this group is “untreatable”, reduction in traumatic stress services, client mistrust of statutory services and difficulties attending outpatient appointments due to drug using patterns, behavioural challenges and high levels of fear-based avoidance.
The clinicians at BGPS offer an in-reach model of therapy, delivering effective evidence-based therapies, including EMDR and CBT, at the accommodation sites.
