Developing a therapeutic family
The Walden model, a community psychological service led by Heena Chudasama and Martin Seager, has won the British Psychological Society’s Division of Counselling Psychology annual award for Community and Carer Involvement.
Chudasama told us: ‘It has been an honour to have been nominated for and received this award… There have been a number of people who have benefited from this consistent service (coming up to three years now!) which has been “life saving” and “life changing”. It seems to have organically developed into a therapeutic family and a “safe place” for our service users. There are a number of psychologists, trainees and psychotherapists who would like to be able to replicate this model in their communities. We are currently looking to find a location in Cambridge who are able to house the project and two psychologists in Cambridge are keen to run the project.’
