Telephone Consultation

During the telephone consultation, we will explore the needs of your school and will answer any questions about the Kalmer Counsellling service. We will book in a school visit.

School Visit

During the school visit, we will discuss in-depth the needs of the school and the children as well as exploring the school setting. It is important to understand where the counselling will take place within the school and the suitability of the environment. From this visit we can build you a bespoke package to implement into your school.

Counselling Service

Kalmer Counselling can create a bespoke counselling provision for your school. The provision can be flexible and adapt to changes and needs of the children within the school. One-to-one, group and drop in sessions are all used within a school setting as required. From the school visit, we will have a counselling service in place within 4-6 weeks.

The Government and Ofsted place emotional wellbeing, resilience and mental health high on their agenda. There is overwhelming research highlighting the unprecedented increase of the needs of our children and young people. In recent published Department for Education reports ‘Mental health and behaviour in schools’, ‘The Impact of Pupil Behaviour & wellbeing on Education outcomes’ highlight the benefits of schools providing opportunities to develop resilience, emotional wellbeing and mental health.

These reports demonstrate a clear link between improved mental health, emotional wellbeing and academic achievement, which is where Kalmer can help your school.

Our service can be purchased on a sessional, termly and academic basis ranging from one hour to half day and full day provisions.
