We are a small group of therapeutic homes where we provide an environment that our young people can thrive in. The individualised therapeutic programmes are integrated in to every aspect of how staff work with each of our young people. They are supported by our therapeutic team of specialists and offer excellent continuity of care and strategies. Our ethos of positive reinforcement builds self-esteem and encourages and supports appropriate behaviour. We have a small mini-farm and an equine centre on one of our sites where young people enjoy interacting and working with the animals. This increases self-esteem and improves empathy.

We offer a variety of individualised therapeutic input to each of our young people. Therapeutic input in the home is integral to all our work. All our staff are trained in a variety of therapeutic practice and receive regular support and supervision from our professional therapists. Staff are trained in Positive Behaviour Support along with working under guidance from our in-house Thrive practitioners.

On arrival all our young people will have a 12-week settling in programme whilst our practitioner along with Daniel completes a full social, emotional, behavioural and cognitive assessment. They also complete an assessment of functional living skills to inform the best possible programme, tailored around the young person to cover every aspect of self and development to independence

Through art, music, mindfulness, 1:1 input from our therapists and having a safe space to talk, our young people are supported holistically to become the best versions of themselves.

Daniel Horan

The main component in our approach is professional therapy and our inhouse Behaviour consultant.

He delivers support and training to families, schools and support groups, and has presented at conferences worldwide. He has been working in the field of special education for 20 years. He has worked at the National Autistic Society and  the Autism Partnership (in the UK and California), The Education Alliance (New York) and as a Senior Consultant at the Treehouse school. He co-founded the TLC in 2010.

He holds a degree in Psychology from Birkbeck (University of London) and has completed post-graduate training in Family Therapy (Institute of Family Therapy). 

Daniel works in Headstart School and Residential Care. He works alongside staff and residents to monitor strategies put in place within their plans, following our assessments. Once the young person has finished their 12-week assessment and stabilisation period, we continue working with the child to clearly define their objectives and outcomes and move them into a personalised therapy programme with relevant interventions tailored to their needs. This process is continually monitored to ensure that the child or young person receives the correct therapy to enable them to reach their goals and outcomes.

Daniela Fasciolo-Barnes

I have 20+ years specialising in developing individual academic, behavioural & wellbeing provision for young people. Dr Clinical Psychology (trainee); PGCE; MSc psychology (MBPsS); RTT®️; C.Hyp; Cert in psychodynamic TA theory: Emotional Well-being, Behaviour and Education Needs Consultant.


I am passionate about people, our individual qualities and especially our overlooked strengths.


As a qualified teacher, with a masters in psychology (specialising in the influence of mindfulness on cognitive and social development within the complex needs classroom), and with 20+ years experience specialising in developing individualised academic, behavioural & wellbeing provision, and providing support for young people who have suffered trauma and abuse,  I have developed a resilience toolkit that empowers young people to reduce anxiety when life gets in the way.

(Often reported as “magic” by educators)


In additional, as an RTT®️ therapist, I have been given the tools to help people find the root cause of their blocks, overcome their trauma and negative beliefs enabling them to finally move forward with their lives!


Whether it's to reduce anxiety, remove fears and phobias, reduce impulsivity, build confidence, improve public speaking, improve productivity, focus, or confidence for an event that's coming up, I can help!


As an Education, Behaviour and Special Educational Needs Consultant, I enjoy empowering people to believe in themselves and be the best that they can be. Encouraging learning in a way that students are able to thrive inside and outside the classroom. I believe that learning is life long and multi faceted.


Ultimately, I believe that it is acknowledging our individual differences and applying our individual experiences that makes for the best growth.
