A very warm welcome to Juniper Tree Therapy, from Emma, Joy and Nick!

Sensory & Physical Difficulties
clumsiness, lack of physical skill development, sensitivity to certain sensory experiences such as sound or touch
We consider each client we work with as an individual; some may have a diagnosis of a particular condition, others may not. We are experienced working with clients with diagnoses including;
- Sensory Processing Disorder or Difficulties
- Emotional Regulation Difficulties
- Attachment Difficulties
- Developmental Trauma, including medical and relational
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Cerebral Palsy
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Developmental Delay
- Chromosomal or Genetic Conditions
- Learning Difficulties
We have a range of approaches which may meet the needs of your child, and we work alongside other Professionals in a holistic way. Approaches that we use may include Sensory Integration, Sensory Attachment Intervention, or other approaches. This will be discussed between yourself and the Occupational Therapist. You can read more about these on our website.
We help to enable children and families to meaningfully engage in their everyday lives – “helping people to live not exist” (RCOT)
We consider how each person’s individual sensory processing impacts upon their daily occupations, and how we can help to support this.
Assessment may include direct or indirect methods, and may be completed holistically, or to inform existing assessment or therapeutic work.
Treatment and intervention may be delivered within the home, school, or other setting as appropriate.
What people have to say about us
Sensory Patterns and Stress Regulation Workshop Day
“This was one of the most informative and applicable workshops that I have EVER attended. I left at the end of the day with a range of strategies, underpinned by a dose of neuroscience, that I could immediately introduce into my family environment. I also felt it incredibly beneficial to be amongst fellow adopters as it felt safe to explore some personal challenges, without fear of judgement”
Adoptive Parent And Foster Carer, attended workshop in Edinburgh
Sensory Attachment Intervention
“I work as a Guardian ad Litem and have recently had Juniper Tree Therapy Ltd complete the Sensory Attachment Intervention with a number of children I work with. The children were referred to Juniper Tree Therapy Ltd due to traumatic histories and the complex emotional and relational difficulties with which they were presenting with. This service has provided a highly efficient, professional and child centred service. The initial assessment is comprehensive, informative and while the information is complex it is delivered in a very easy to understand and user friendly manner. From this a clear intervention plan tailored to the child and family/residential unit was developed. The intervention block is provided seamlessly engaging with all important environments for the child and doing so sensitively. Most importantly the children have all had positive experiences of working with Nick and Emma and have been open to the intervention despite generally carrying huge mistrust of adults. Foster carers and residential staff have all spoken positively of their engagement with the service and found the intervention of immense benefit to both the adults and children. I would highly recommend Juniper Tree Therapy for its comprehensive understanding of trauma, attachment and occupational therapy needs of children in care.”

Autism, Food & Regulation (One Day Bespoke Course)
“The training was really informative and presented in away which was highly engaging. It was information packed with lots of practical examples. I feel I have a better understanding of how sensory processing difficulties can impact on mealtimes and the types of strategies/ approaches that might be considered.”
