Listening Circles

Listening Circles are locally and virtually organised support groups.

The themes discussed at Listening Circles relate to Therapeutic Parenting strategies, solutions, challenges, and successes. Discussions empower parents and help in overcoming feelings of isolation and compassion fatigue. Discussion about local politics, fees, and other field-specific discussions discouraged.

NATP also invites supporting professionals to join listening circles specific to them, to meet other therapeutic professionals and promote cohesive working withing their team.

Any issues raised during Listening Circles regarding safeguarding are referred to NATP’s Safeguarding Officer, who is an appropriately trained, and a registered Social Worker.

Virtual Listening Circles

With people joining worldwide, we have set up Virtual Listening Circles to support members and their families, no matter where they are.

Because of their popularity throughout the Covid-19 lockdowns, Virtual Listening Circles are now available to all members.

We know that a variety of things can make attending face to face events tricky: difficulty with childcare, accessibility, transport, etc. Why not join a Virtual Listening Circle from the comfort of your own home instead?
