We recognise that people need support to thrive and reach their full potential. The therapy and wellbeing service offers 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 have two on-site Creative Arts Therapists (HCPC, BADTH) who manage the provision.
Therapeutic work is tailored according to needs, combining either a creative indirect approach or direct talking approach to supporting emotional and psychological wellbeing. The aim of therapy may include improving self-awareness, relationships, coping mechanisms, general wellbeing or making difficult events more bearable. These interventions may occur individually or in groups.
