Respond is a national charity that draws on 31 years’ experience of pursuing and fulfilling our mission to bring about positive change that enables people with learning disabilities, autism or both who have experienced abuse, violence, or trauma to live richer, more resilient lives. We achieve this through a range of evidence-based trauma-informed therapy-based services for children, young people, adults, and professionals. These services include psychotherapy, Circles of Support and Accountability (COSAs), advocacy, campaigning and other support that aim to both prevent abuse and equip individuals and their families to find ways to live with their experiences and live more positive lives.


Additionally, we achieve our mission by providing unique specialist training, clinical supervision, reflective practice, professional development and consultancy services to equip all agencies’ staff to understand and better meet the needs of people with a learning disability, autism or both who have experienced trauma or abuse or who are perpetrators.

As well as case management of some clients.


The Senior Therapist will also provide clinical supervision, reflective practice groups, consultation, and train clinicians, as well as a range of professionals and carers.
