Schools & Organisations

Terapia Schools service works in primary and secondary schools as well as other community organisations supporting children, young people, parents, carers and families in a safe and effective way to improve their emotional and mental health. We also have experience working in PRU’s, leaving care services and special support schools.

We use in-depth counselling skills and non-verbal techniques such as art, play, drama and music to enable young children to express themselves, work through difficulties, release anxiety and improve self-esteem.

We work with parents and teachers helping them to understand children’s behaviour, reduce conflict and increase connection. We are also able to advise on specialist referrals to CAMHS and other agencies.
