Essex Probation


A high proportion of those we work with are required by the courts to complete one or more offending behaviour programmes during their Community Sentence. These are specialist programmes designed to tackle the root causes of offending.


Many are based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy theory, which suggests that giving people an understanding of their thought processes, and teaching them to respond and act differently from their norm, will provide the practical tools to avoid ingrained destructive behaviour.

Key issues

Some of the issues our programmes are designed to tackle are:

  • Drink driving
  • Drugs
  • Alcohol
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Thinking Skills
  • Anger Management

Each intervention is designed for different offences,  for groups and for individuals and many have been officially accredited for Probation use. In addition, there are other structured interventions to increase the breadth and depth of services we offer.

Our programme tutors have the ability to galvanise and support their groups throughout lengthy and frequent groupwork sessions.
