Supporting children across

Trafford and Manchester

Counselling in schools

Specialised counselling to support the ongoing educational needs for pupils and students

When children and young people are using lots of energy trying to manage emotional difficulties their capacity to learn is severely hampered. We know that reduction in emotional stress resulting from specialised counselling can make a whole world of difference to what the student can achieve educationally.


We have been supporting children across Trafford and Manchester for more than five years in Primary, Secondary and Specialist schools. Our service is designed to be flexible and adapt to the needs of the individual to ensure we deliver the best help to your school and pupils. Everyone is different and will benefit from their own bespoke package of support.

How can we help you?

1 to 1 therapeutic support to students within school working with issues such as  anger, anxiety, problems with friendships, families and other important relationships, depression, bereavement and loss, self esteem, self-harm, bullying, problems with School, abuse & trauma. This is not an exhaustive list, simply an indication of some of the main issues we have encountered in recent times.

We are always looking for new ways to support and encourage children and young people. In addition to one-to-one counselling, we offer a range of group programmes, tailored and flexible to meet specific needs. Examples of these programmes include:

If we do not currently run a course you are looking for we are able to create programmes to meet other needs in your school.

This service is paid for by the schools themselves, and we are grateful to each school that has chosen to invest in their young people’s mental health and well-being.
