Terapia School Services – Whole School Approach Project


Terapia is a charity experienced in offering a wide range of specialist mental health and well- being services in schools, tailored to the needs of each school community.

Our ‘Whole School Approach’ funded project will provide holistic therapeutic services to the entire community of five schools in the London Borough of Barnet; striving to transform mental health ethos and promote a sustainable improvement to well-being, empowering teaching professionals and students of all ages.

We will provide counselling, psychotherapy and groupwork to students, teachers and parents/carers. Children, young people and families can also be referred to our local, purpose- built Terapia Centre for specialist therapeutic interventions as part of this unique project.
