For Individuals & Families
We offer a wide range of services for individuals seeking support, or for family members seeking support on behalf of their loved one.
Studio 3 offers diagnostic assessments for various mental health and neurodivergent conditions, including autism, ADHD, anxiety, ARFID, complex trauma, and more. Individuals can self-refer for assessments, and family members can also inquire on their behalf. Our assessments are conducted with empathy and precision, providing a comprehensive understanding of a diagnosis where provided, and regardless of whether a diagnostic decision is reached, we will always provide practical recommendations and signpost towards tailored supports where appropriate.
Therapy and Counselling
Our therapy and counselling services extend to individuals in a one-to-one setting, and their families as a group, providing a safe space for emotional support and growth. Our experienced therapists are dedicated to assisting you in navigating challenges, fostering resilience, and promoting overall well-being.

We understand the unique challenges that carers, parents, and supporters face. Studio 3 offers individualised support and advice, recognising the importance of tailored guidance to meet specific needs. Our experts work collaboratively with you to address challenges and enhance your capacity to provide effective support.

Empowering Families to Navigate Challenges with Calmness and Compassion
At Studio 3, we understand that supporting a loved one who exhibits distressed behaviour can be a complex journey. Our specialised training for families focuses on the innovative Low Arousal Approach, a methodology we originated to create calm and supportive environments. This training equips families with practical tools and strategies to apply the Low Arousal Approach in daily interactions with their loved ones.
There are a number of training options for family members, individuals, and carers to consider:
Stress Management Training: The Atlass Programme is a specialised initiative focusing on stress reduction and building coping strategies. This program is designed for supporters working in highly stressful environments or supporting a loved one with distressed behaviours. Through Atlass, participants gain valuable insights into effective stress management, fostering resilience, and maintaining well-being in challenging situations.
Low Arousal Approach Training: The Low Arousal Approach is a set of skills tailored to de-escalating crisis situations in a non-aversive and calm manner. This also involves a mindset change, and means reflecting on how what we say and do in a crisis can make a person’s stress escalate. The Low Arousal Approach has been successfully applied by families across the globe. **Testimonial quote**
Managing Signs of Distress Training: This course is designed for supporters of individuals who exhibit behaviours of concern. There is a focus on understanding the causes of distressed behaviours, recognising stress and trauma, crisis management, and applying Low Arousal Approaches.
Trauma-Informed Care Training: Our trauma-informed care training using the SSRR approach is tailored specifically towards foster and residential carers supporting children and young people. This course follows a step-by-step programme whereby carers move through stages in their relationship with an individual, strengthening feelings of safety, stability, repair and resilience in order to heal past trauma.
