Service description:

Sound Foundations CIC was set up in 2021 following the closure of the Northamptonshire Parent Infant Partnership (NorPIP). It  provides multi-model therapeutic support and early intervention services in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, and Warwickshire. It aims to support babies, children, and adults with a range of diagnosed (and undiagnosed) needs so they can have the best start in life.

Parent Infant Therapy

Parent-infant psychotherapy (PIP) is supportive psychotherapy intended to promote positive bonding experiences in the parent-infant relationship and to strengthen attachment.
Sound Foundations works with parents expecting a baby and those with babies up to the age of two years. They support parents when they struggle to relate to or have any positive feelings about their babies.

Parent-infant psychotherapy is suitable for mothers and fathers who are:

  • Suffering from low mood, low self-esteem, and low confidence in parenting
  • Experiencing difficult feelings during pregnancy (and the weeks following the baby's birth)
  • Struggling to find what feels like the right kind of love for their baby
  • Recovering from postnatal depression or perinatal psychosis
  • Looking around at other happy parents and wondering why they can't be happy
  • Recovering from a challenging birth
  • Adoptive parent/s who would like to develop their relationship with their new baby
  • Recovering from post-adoption depression
  • Adjusting to life with twins or triplets or multiples
  • Impacted by a traumatic event
  • Finding the responsibility of parenting overwhelming

Music Therapy

Music therapy focuses on promoting positive bonding experiences, developing communication skills, developing social skills, and supporting emotional or behavioural difficulties.

Sound Foundations provides music therapy to infants, children and families. They offer individual, group, and family music therapy sessions.

Music Therapy sessions can be beneficial in supporting those with:

  • Attachment difficulties
  • Separation anxiety
  • Brain injury (including following birth trauma)
  • Emotional trauma
  • Social and communication difficulties
  • Challenging behaviour
  • Developmental delay

Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy

Child and adolescent psychotherapists tailor their approach to individuals and work in an age-appropriate way. For example, using play or drawing with younger children but talking about feelings with teenagers. The child has an opportunity to work towards a better understanding of themselves, their relationships, and their established patterns of behaviour.

Psychotherapists can apply their framework to work with parents, families, and carers. They can also train and support other professionals who work with children, young people.

Therapeutic Supervision and Consultation

Supervision is used in counselling, psychotherapy, arts therapy, and other mental health disciplines. Sound Foundations offers a consultancy, therapeutic, clinical, supervisory space for professionals working with infants, children, and families.
