What is the Counselling in Schools Service?
Why have Counselling/Arts Therapy in your school?
Like most of us children and young people can find that their ability to concentrate and/or their behaviour is affected when they are trying to deal with difficult issues. Allowing them a safe, confidential space to explore these issues can enable them to achieve their full potential both personally and academically.
What are the benefits of providing Counselling/Arts Therapy for pupils?
For pupils the benefits can include:
Who can we work with
The service works with children and young people aged 5-19 years (up to 21 years with care leavers) within educational establishments across Hertfordshire. If the child/young person is not attending school/college, arrangements can be made to see them in an alternative, appropriate space, where possible.
We are a traded service meaning funding is needed in order for the work to go ahead. The majority of work is funded by schools direct, however depending on the circumstances of the child or young person, alternative funding may be available to support the work. If funding is an issue please contact the Safe Space team to discuss possible options available – 01992 588796. We provide free CRISIS support to schools when there has been a serious incident.
The Features of the Service
Counselling in Schools provides the following features
Guaranteed Quality Assurance
Timely Access to Emotional Health and Well Being Support
We aim to respond to initial enquiries within two working days. The time taken to set up the service within a school will depend on the size of the contract and the capacity within the service at the time of the request. If we are unable to provide support we will where possible offer suggestions for alterative services that may be beneficial.
