Coronavirus Update

In-school Therapy and Training

As schools plan to welcome all children and young people back to full-time routines from September, our professional team is looking forward to resuming face-to-face sessions in our partner schools.

In response to the huge challenges that lie ahead, we are delighted to be able to offer a revised training programme and professional supervisions for September. These are specifically designed to help school staff and parents support children returning into the school setting.

These workshops will have a special emphasis on coping with loss, bereavement, change and anxiety.

We anticipate that on-line training and Zoom meetings will continue to be part of our working practices as a way of complementing our day to day presence in schools and are looking forward to resuming our full-time, on-site therapeutic provision in due course.

Please visit our Training Provision for Sept/Oct 2020 page for information of how we propose to support children and school staff as they return to the school setting.

Please contact Louise Picton if you would like to book any of our workshops or to discuss any bespoke training requirements.

We will be updating our webpage as new advice is issued by the Government; please check back regularly.

Resources

We have prepared some resources around Talking about Coronavirus and Anxiety, Bereavement and Mindfulness which may be useful for parents and school staff to use in supporting children and young people.

Some of these resources have been prepared by our own professional team and some from other providers have been curated for children, parents and staff.

How can you help?

We rely heavily on voluntary donations to fund our work; with the indefinite suspension of our fundraising calendar, never have these donations been more vital.
