School Counsellor

Sometimes Young People find it hard to talk to friends and family about what they are going through and how this makes them feel.

Counselling is a way of helping Young People explore their innermost thoughts and feelings in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental and confidential environment with a trained professional.

We have a Counsellor in school on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to support students.

Carol Phillips will be helping students through many issues that they face from family troubles and relationships, depression, stress and anxiety to mention a few.

Within a safe, trusting and accepting environment, students will have the space and time to help them make sense and cope with what difficulties they are having.

Counselling focuses on:


Listening to THE STUDENT

How THE STUDENT is feeling

What is affecting THE STUDENT

Counselling does not give them the solutions, but empowers them to grow, develop and change.

The service is confidential (within normal Safeguarding Guidelines) and open to all students.  Parents will be contacted prior to a student starting counselling if LHEA feel that it is appropriate to seek parental permission explicitly.
