As a school, we understand that finding the right support for your child is not only important, it is essential. We also understand that sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. We have therefore put together some useful resources for both students and parents to access should they feel they require support.
Some of these are local organisations and others are national charities.
Either way, each contact should be able to offer you the advice, support and understanding that you need.
Should you have any concerns or queries about your child, please ensure that you find out what support within school is available. Students have access to a range of services within the school which can be accessed via their Director of Learning or Miss L Kaukolahti (Miss K).
Young Minds are leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. We’re here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties. Click here find out more information and advice.
Try the 30 Day Challenge
You can write as much, or as little as you like during the week, or at any time that suits you and the counsellor will respond to you on an agreed day.
The advantage of counselling by email is that you can have time to think about what you want to say and you can look back on both your own and your counsellor’s messages. It can be a great way to get things off your chest and vent in private with someone who can help you through the minefield of your emotions and support you to cope with things that are troubling you.
Live chat IM
We also offer live chat sessions where you meet your counsellor online once a week at an agreed time. It’s a live conversation with text instead of f2f with the advantage of having an immediate response from your counsellor instead of waiting a few days for a reply.
