We are able to offer bespoke packages to educational settings and families:

Consultation to parents and professionals              

Our aims

  • To bring parents and school together to jointly define and explore the concerns in school
  • To consider the child’s underlying social, emotional and mental health needs and how these impact on their learning and behaviour
  • To explore the challenges in the learning environment
  • To identify and jointly agree strategies and supportive interventions
  • To identify whether further assessment is required (e.g. SALT, OT Dyslexia)
  • If the child is in therapy here, to support the parents/carers and therapist with additional strategies which will enable learning

Direct Assessment with children and young people             

Our aims

  • To jointly define and explore the concerns at home and in school
  • To identify the pupil’s underlying social, emotional and mental health needs and how these impact on their learning and behaviour
  • To provide a psychological assessment which takes account of the different contexts in which the child is functioning
  • To identify and agree supportive strategies and interventions
  • To make recommendations for therapeutic intervention

Organisational consultation

Our aims

  • To work collaboratively with senior leadership teams within schools and colleges to review their whole-school approach to meeting the needs of vulnerable children and their families
  • To understand what becoming a trauma-informed school means for their context, and developing a plan for implementation
  • To identify training and supervision needs for the school

Supervision

We are able to offer specialist group or individual supervision to education staff and other Educational Psychologists. Our supervision embodies the following values within the supervisory relationship:

  • Safety, trust, and collaboration;
  • The importance of having a safe, consistent, regular and reflective space particularly when working within complex contexts and complex pupils;
  • The acceptance that we all have our own triggers and stressors which can be activated within our work. Supervision will therefore prioritise reflection, well-being and self-care;
  • Supervision is relational. Group supervision pays attention to group processes while providing a safe space where individual voices are listened to and where these voices matter.

Our Supervision Aims:

  • To enable staff to understand and respond to children’s needs and behaviours
  • To build confidence and knowledge about developmental challenges in vulnerable children
  • To strengthen team-work
  • To promote staff well-being and self-care
  • To enhance the individual or team’s capacity to reflect and understand their roles and goals
