Counselling allows a child time and space to work through their thoughts and feelings to gain a better understanding about what is concerning them.

The work is delivered through creative expression and play.

Counselling in school allows children to access support in a familiar, safe and secure environment and supports them to achieve their full potential.

Nurture groups such as 'fun friends' and 'friends for life' can be accessed by small groups of children.
