We recognise that people need support to thrive and reach their full potential. The therapy and wellbeing service offer’s a specialised support for students who may benefit from regular therapy sessions; drop-in sessions are open to all. The school prioritises social emotional and mental health within every aspect of school life - policies & environment, curriculum, special events & campaigns - to positively impact outcomes for students.

We currently have one full-time Counsellor on-site who manages the provision.

For Students

Therapeutic work is tailored according to needs, combining either a creative indirect approach, direct talking approach as well as solution focused CBT approach, to supporting emotional and psychological wellbeing. The aim of therapy may include improving self-awareness, self-esteem, relationships, coping strategies, anger management, overcoming negative thoughts, general wellbeing or making difficult events more bearable. We offer all our student’s individual and confidential sessions every day of the school year.
