We offer counselling to children in both primary and secondary schools during term time.
Children may need counselling for all sorts of reasons such as :-
- A family break up
- A Bereavement
- Low confidence and self esteem
- A chaotic family life
- Exam pressure
When children and adolescents are experiencing problems outside their school life it may affect their behaviour and coping strategies. Children and adolescent demonstrate this in all sorts of ways such as:-
- Anger Problems
- Self harm
- Not wanting to learn
- Anxiety due to exam pressures
With counselling it will help a child/adolescent express themselves and talk about their feelings in a nonjudgemental environment.
Our counsellors are professionally trained, insured, DBS checked and have had additional safeguarding children training.
Young children are often unable to put their feelings and emotions into words so we use a combination of play and art therapy.
With older children and adolescents a combination of CBT, Person centered, Brief Solution Focussed Therapy, Art and Play Therapy are used.
Adolescents may be under a huge amount of stress now with their exams approaching. Counselling can help them focus and talk about their worries and concerns. Goal setting is used and helps adolescents focus and have a sense of direction.
