We offer creative therapies in a safe and supportive environment for children, young people and families.
The Koru is a Maori emblem of the newly emerging fern; symbolic of new life and strength.
Each frond contains within its tightly curled spiral, the design of the fully mature leaf.
The work of The Koru Project, seeks to encourage each person to grow towards the freedom and fullness of who they are.
Our collective specialisms include:
- Art Psychotherapy

All Koru practitioners are skilled at working creatively with individuals, families and groups.
Our attachment informed practice focuses on forming a therapeutic alliance with our clients that helps nurture growth, healing and development.
This methodology is informed by dyadic developmental psychotherapy (DDP) and neuroscience.
Our work with victims of abuse, neglect and relational trauma helps to rewire their capacity to trust, to love and to form functional, reciprocal relationships. A belief in the transformative powers of creative therapies contained within the safety of the therapeutic relationship lies at the heart of the Koru Project .
We know how much a difference a day makes to a family or child who is needing help.
We are committed to providing support quickly and when it’s needed most.
Our referral and assessment process allows us to create robust therapeutic solutions and implement interventions rapidly.
Our flexible approach offers specialist support within local settings and we pride ourselves on our reputation to engage and inspire even the hardest to reach young people.
