Better than CQC

At Khiron we see meeting the CQC standards as a minimum baseline, and our aspirations are to provide a level of service, care and treatment that is better even than a CQC ‘outstanding’ would merit.
CQC inspectors and their measurements do not look for the attributes of a service that is specifically designed and delivered to help people who are trying to recover from trauma. When people are undergoing trauma treatment, they are often hypersensitive to aspects of the environment that could dysregulate their nervous systems and be detrimental to their treatment.
This includes a wide range of stimuli, from unexpected noises to changes in staff, from fear of strangers to too much contact with the external world.

We pay attention to these details in many different ways, for example:

  • We deliver innovative neurobiological therapies which are at the cutting edge of trauma
    treatment.
  • In addition to the specialist neurobiological sessions and groups, we have a full programme of groups and activities chosen to complement these modalities, such as yoga, equine therapy, tai-chi and ecotherapy.
  • We have properly trained and experienced therapists who have supervision from recognised global experts in the field.
  • We train all support staff on how best to work with residents who are suffering acute symptoms of trauma.
  • We have mutually agreed rules and boundaries that are enforced with sensitivity and kindness.
  • The residential setting is rural, tranquil, and very private. There are many opportunities for contact with nature, alone or as part of our programme.
  • We restrict all comings and goings at the facility to the bare minimum.
  • We have five levels of care, creating a pathway to ensure that there are suitable options all the way from 24/7 residential care to weekly outpatient therapy sessions.

These important aspects of our work are not recognised by CQC, so we demonstrate that we are doing them to a high standard by looking for other accreditations:
