bccs is made up of a dedicated team of professionals, led by our Director, Bernadette Fisher. The team is diverse in that it’s made up of both counsellors and social workers, all with extensive experience. We remain dedicated to the provision of therapeutic services within the school setting and our professional counsellors and social workers are key in providing this.
We have, however, also gone through a period of change and expansion of our services. We also now have a new arm to our services which focuses on a more tailor-made kind of support, whether it be in the guise of training, direct child/family support, or in-house consultation to school staff.
We have recruited a small team of very experienced counsellors who are passionate about providing this new, comprehensive service. You’ll find out more about this within our 'Training & Support for Staff' section.
This specialist counselling takes place within the school setting or in our dedicated counselling suite in Childcare House, Rayleigh.

A dedicated worker for your school
Many schools in Essex and East London currently benefit from having a dedicated bccs worker who delivers vital mental health services in the school setting.
Children's friendships are templates for the subsequent relationships they will form throughout school and the rest of their adult lives. Friends are vital to school age children's healthy development.
