  • Child in Time is a tremendous resource for head-teachers.  It’s a consultancy that offers a short-cut to setting up a counselling service in your school with highly trained, qualified practitioners. Child in Time brings peace of mind to staff, knowing that the most vulnerable students are in safe hands.’

  • You have helped me build a barrier of protection against pain and I can’t thank you enough for that…I have never felt so emotionally strong.’
    (Student, aged 15)
  • This intervention has had an enormous, positive impact for us all and we sincerely hope that other families benefit from the same programme…It was lovely to hear that his teacher describes ‘F’ as happy and popular within the class and that his positive behaviour is having a really good impact on all elements of his school life.

  • I am glad I am coming to see you every Thursday because I used to hold all these things in my head and that was hard.
    (Girl, age 10)
  • We are very happy with the counselling service we are receiving and in particular Karen’s flexible and accommodating nature. Parents are very pleased, both the target children’s parents and the consultation one’s too.
