The Mulberry Bush Core Values

We believe in the benefits of a Therapeutic Community approach. We value and promote a psychodynamic approach to all aspects of our work specifically:

  • A belief in the value of reflecting on experience and learning through reflection on experience
  • A belief in attempting to understand the meaning of behaviour and understanding behaviour as communication
  • We work with a belief in the dynamic nature of individual and group relationships.
  • We value and promote an integrated approach to assessment, planning and delivery of services.
  • We are committed to supporting staff through training, professional development, supervision and consultation.
  • We are committed to a way of working which does not punish or judge people and both respects and encourages them to express their unspoken thoughts and feelings.
  • We believe the above to apply to all people who use Mulberry Bush Services no matter what culture, race, religion, gender, ability or age and stage in life.
