The service provided by NorPIP focuses on supporting parents to be and new parents to build a strong loving relationship whilst resolving issues that might be affecting theirs and their families mental wellbeing and relationship.

 

Therapeutic sessions are delivered using a range of techniques that help parents to attune to and meet their baby's emotional and development needs. Dependent on the level of complexity we meet parents for an initial assessment to assess their needs and decide on whether parent infant therapy would be appropriate.

 

Interventions are delivered in the form of parent-infant therapy, using a range of psychotherapy, CBT, Psychodynamic Counselling that help parents to attune to and meet their baby’s emotional and developmental needs. 

 

We like to make our services as accessible as possible and so we try to provide flexibility as to the venue, location and timing of sessions.
