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 Integration & Neurology Foundations (Two Day Bespoke Workshop)
“The workshop has given me a greater understanding of some of the issues that may affect our clients, particularly highlighting the issues of potential attachment problems and trauma.”

“As a speech and language therapist working with individuals with complex needs, it is difficult to find highly trained specialists in the area of sensory integration – we’ve definitely found that in Juniper Tree Therapy. It has been wonderful to work together with the joint aim of empowering staff to build communication into OT activities and vice versa. The difference to children’s access to activities, learning and interaction speaks for itself and we continue to learn so much from Emma and Nick.”
