In 2016 it was found by The Department of Education that 10% of 5-16 year old pupils experienced a mental health issue. In light of the evidence that children do not always receive the support that they need, as quickly as they should, Healthbox CIC will be offering 1-2-1 counselling to children referred by a parent or teacher with the aim of reducing potential barriers to education. Pupils will receive a counselling session once a week on the school premises.
What do the counselling sessions involve?
Each child will be allocated a fully qualified MBACP Counsellor. The duration of the session will be 40 minutes once a week in an allocated private room within the school premises. The counsellor and child will explore any difficulties that the child is experiencing, this can be achieved with the use of a range of creative resources to allow the child to express themselves in an appropriate manner for the age of that child.
How to refer a child?
A child can be referred to our counselling service via their school staff.
Prices available upon request.
