Support for Schools


“Studies show that high-quality counselling can prevent students from turning to violence, drug, or alcohol abuse, as well as improve grades and reduce classroom disruptions.”

Former U.S. Secretary of Education, Rod Paige


It is widely recognized that the provision of counselling in schools adds value and is an essential service in the lives of young people. Many students encounter personal and emotional difficulties that impact upon their development, children who are troubled generally do not flourish. Counselling has been proven to positively influence young people academically, but more importantly facilitate the development of cognitive and emotional skills that will sustain them in their transition into adulthood.


Counselling/Play Therapy Support

Since 2010 we have been providing school counselling and play therapy services aimed at improving the emotional wellbeing of children, their families and the school community. We have developed an excellent reputation in providing a fully comprehensive service to young people in schools. Our service includes:-

The young children will learn really helpful skills in communication, listening, understanding feelings as well as developing confidence and problem solving ability. Once the PALS are trained they will have a role supporting other children on the playground during lunchtimes at school.

We are very proud of P2P, a very successful Peer Support training program that lasts between 8-10 weeks and trains young people to be effective helpers and psycho-educators leading workshops on topical issues for adolescents. This compliments the pastoral ethos of your school and fits with the requirements of CAS for the IB.
