Benefits of school based counselling​​

  • Fully qualified counsellors that are all registered members of BACP (British Association of Counselling and  Psychotherapy) or PTUK (Play Therapy UK) or equivalent

  • Counselling creates a place for children and young people to process difficult experiences, make sense of complex emotions and manage themselves more effectively 

  •  Improved mental health leads to improved attendance and performance in schools 

How can counselling help?  

Counselling provides an opportunity for you to talk about your problems, challenges and difficult feelings in a safe confidential environment.

Your counsellor will listen to you with respect and without judgement.
This can help you to feel more settled, confident and in control.


Will my Counsellor tell anyone about what we talk about?

Counselling is a confidential space for you to talk about anything you want to. This means that information and things you share with your counsellor about yourself or others would not usually be shared with anyone else. This includes; parents, teachers, friends, social services, family, or anyone else.

The only time your counsellor may give out information about you without your permission is when you or someone else is in serious danger.  In this case they will need to speak to either the Service Lead or the CEO at Step2.

In such a situation your counsellor will make every effort to talk it through with you before discussing things with someone else.

Who are the counsellors?

Step2 has a team of counsellors who are carefully selected for their experience and counselling qualifications. They are all fully qualified, registered members of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) or other professional body, adhering to the Ethical Framework for good practice.

They are all required to provide references to show their suitability for the post and enhanced DBS checks are carried out.

All the counsellors at Step2 have experience of working with young people.
