Here at Thomas Bennett we recognise the need for a robust counselling service and have developed a model which supports any student needing a therapeutic intervention. This may be a one off crisis intervention session, a drop-in, group work or 1-1 sessions. We are able to offer both short and long term counselling depending on the individual need of the student. We have three well equipped counselling rooms located in the main school and 7 counsellors available during the week to see students. Our counsellors work hard to balance liaising with staff and parents whilst also upholding a confidential service.
At Thomas Bennett we also recognise the need to support our staff in order that they are able to fulfill their roles within the school to their full potential. We therefore provide staff with a free counselling service within school should they ever require support.
Should a student or parent wish to refer to the counselling service they can either contact Tara Cresswell (Counselling Coordinator) directly, or speak with a member of the staff team who can refer on their behalf.
