Assessment & Therapy


Our Homes

Therapeutic homes for young people who have displayed harmful sexual behaviour.

Apple Orchard specialise in working with adolescent males who have complex needs associated with sexually inappropriate behaviour.

Young people will come to Apple Orchard with varying life experiences, but commonly they have often been subject to varying levels of trauma. They may have suffered sexual, physical or emotional abuse or neglect.

Good Lives Model

Strength-based approach, helping young people strive

The specific needs of each young person are at the heart of everything we do. With the “Good Lives Model” at the core, a variety of therapeutic methodologies is used flexibly throughout the young person’s placement. These are all adapted to what is assessed as most suitable any given time. This demands a highly-skilled approach from our expert therapists to ensure that transparent, open and agreed aims regarding the young person’s harmful sexual behaviour are achieved via an attentive, genuine and nurturing relationship.
