We believe recovery from self-harm is a right that every family should have access to.

Why we Speek

At Speek, we believe an ecosystem of care is vital on the road to recovery. As the parent that your child relies on, you need to be well, too, and feel confident providing the guidance and support they need. We’re here to help you do just that.

We blend three therapeutic modalities, so our care can suit your needs.


Dialectical Behavioural Therapy


Combining behavioural techniques with mindfulness strategies to help you develop skills for emotion regulation and distress tolerance.


Compassion-Focussed Therapy


Emphasising the cultivation of self-compassion and the development of skills to alleviate emotional distress through understanding and your own suffering.


Acceptance & Commitment Therapy


Encouraging individuals to accept their thoughts and feelings, commit to meaningful values, and take committed action toward aligning with those values.

The Speek approach achieves unparalleled efficacy
