Schools Counselling

"The attendance of pupils who have had counselling has improved dramatically, and behavioural incidents have been reduced for the most challenged pupils.

Families have been massively supportive. They notice improved behaviour and communication, and we can also see that the children who have benefited from the service have made more rapid progress in their academic learning than was previously expected."

Many schools are struggling with issues such as exclusion, behavioural challenges, self-harm, extreme anxiety, eating disorders, depression or children who have simply withdrawn into themselves.

It is often difficult for schools to find solutions for children who are facing these issues within the context of the normal school routine.

The last 18 months have exacerbated the situation and in the last three months alone, nearly 200,000 young people have been referred to mental health services*, almost double pre-pandemic levels.

Fegans, part of Spurgeons Children’s Charity since July 2021, provides professional and effective therapeutic service to communities throughout the UK. Mental health support for staff, parents and children is provided through one-to-one counselling either face to face or remotely with qualified and experienced psychotherapists.

Our services currently run in 140 schools but there are so many vulnerable children and young people who still need help and support to deal with life’s challenges.

The positive impact of counselling can be life-changing for children. Before counselling, 63% of children referred to us described themselves as having low well-being. After counselling the positions reversed, with 83% of children having moderate or high wellbeing.

"In our sessions, we unjumbled my thoughts, feelings and behaviour. I feel so much better now - when I start to panic, I can calm myself down really quickly. I'm also sleeping better now and I don't feel so overwhelmed."
