Schools and Young People
According to the Department of Education in 2015, school-based counselling is viewed positively by school staff, children, and young people, who see it as an effective way to improve mental health and wellbeing, and facilitate engagement with studying and learning. This service is also seen as accessible, providing children and young people with more options to talk to a professional about problems in their lives.
In schools, counsellors often encounter common issues such as family problems, anxiety, depression, self-harm, attention disorders, PTSD, eating disorders, and substance misuse.
The effectiveness of our in-school counselling services is evidenced by increased well-being, measured using Goodman’s Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire, improved attendance, calmer pupil behaviour, fewer disruptions in class, and better, more focused attitudes towards learning.
