Schools Service

kidsOur work in schools is almost entirely done under specific contract in individual schools or LDGs. We have extensive experience of working in primary, secondary, special schools and pupil referral units.

Where a contract is not in place it is possible for schools to refer individual pupils to our centres or on occasion for a counsellor to attend a school for a short period of time if it’s appropriate to work with one child or a group or cohort following a particularly distressing and upsetting event.

Many schools use the Pupil Premium to cover the cost of the work.
