FEELINGS FIRST

Feelings First is Counselling and Therapy for young people aged 4-25.

Counselling is about understanding how you feel and why. You may feel unhappy or that something is wrong but you can't seem to work it out on your own. 

Your counsellor will work with you on finding your own solutions. Your counsellor is specially trained to help you uncover things you need to understand.

EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY

Educational Psychologists (EP) work with children, parents, teachers and other professionals to promote positive change in a child’s life. EPs have been specially trained to understand how children learn, behave, think, feel and get on with others. They know how schools work and what helps young people to learn and do well. They can advise on many issues such as; difficulties with learning, mental health problems i.e. anxiety or depression, reluctance to attend school and difficulties with social interaction.

If you think your child might need to see an Educational Psychologist then contact the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) for your child’s school. (Please click here to find contact details for your child's school) Every school has a SENCo, they regularly meet with the Psychologist to discuss children who are struggling in school for a variety of reasons. If the SENCo thinks it would be helpful to talk about your child with the EP they will ask your permission first. The school will tell you if the EP is going to see your child.
