Our value

Meadows Psychology Service embody the following values in our work

Empowering

We notice, celebrate, and magnify what is working. As well as noticing and reflecting on our own or others resources, skills, strengths and positive qualities.

Inclusive

We are curious and reflective about our own and others social, cultural, institutional experiences and how these shape our assumptions, interpretations and beliefs. We encourage our teams to do the same, championing an environment where people feel safe to bring their authentic selves to the work we do together.

Compassionate

We are compassionate and seek to understand, care, and make meaning of individual and team experiences.

Integrative

We work to integrate an array of knowledge and skills in relational trauma into therapeutic work, staff training, consultation, language, reflective spaces and leadership style.

Responsive and Adaptive

We recognise the importance of being responsive to both trauma and the needs of the individuals and teams.
