Our Partnerships

We're lucky to work with an amazing range or organisations. 

Despite their diversity, they all share one aim - to improve the lives of people in mental health services.

East London Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust

East London Forensic Service provide secure mental health services at the medium security John Howard Hospital and low security Wolfson House in Hackney, London.  We first introduced relational security as a full MDT here, and never looked back.

These sessions enabled proper discussion and encouraged us to explore all the team member’s thoughts on key issues. The flexible format enabled us to use the time in the best way possible.

Royal College of Psychiatry Quality Network for Forensic Mental Health Services

We've worked with the College Quality Network for Forensic Mental Health since the very beginning.  From writing See Think Act 2nd Edition to chairing and speaking at conferences, editing policy and writing the occasional article,  we do whatever we can to help because the forensic network plays a really important role in the improvement of UK services.

Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust

Penning Care provide non-secure inpatient mental health services.  We work with the Trust to train and develop multi disciplinary teams to so they can work together to improve patient outcomes.

We talked to our staff yesterday and they told us it was the best training they’d ever had. They said ‘this lady understands what our problems are but more than that, she can help us solve them’. They’re genuinely hopeful.

Black Country Partnership NHS Trust

We're working with the general inpatient mental health services to develop relational security expertise at all levels of staffing.

The training has been really well received. People are finding it so useful to reflect on the issues you’ve raised with them so thank you for all your hard working in bringing this to our organisation.

London Cyrenians

Partnerships in Care provide secure mental health services in the UK.  We've worked with PiC on many different projects over the years, the most recent being the development of PathNav, an electronic care planning tool that builds care plans and monitors patient progress against clearly stated health outcomes.


NHS England

Over the years we've worked on a number of programmes with NHS England.  Most recently we supported NHS London to help London community services think about what they'd need to put in place to effectively transition people with a learning disability from a secure hospital to community support setting.

Broadmoor High Security, Hospital

Broadmoor is one of three high security hospitals in the UK.  We trained psychologists in issues of relational security to enable them to support staff.


The Caswell Clinic

The Caswell is a medium security hospital in Wales, providing secure care for a range of diagnostic groups.  We reviewed the service and advised on areas of clinical effectiveness and efficiency.

Liz brought her extensive experience, skills and knowledge to our service review and as a result we have a much clearer philosophy of care for our service.
