School Workshops

Affordable, Professional Counselling

Child in Time provides counselling, support, and advice to pupils, staff, parents & carers. Our highly qualified team of therapists work with children and young people in primary, secondary, and college education. In addition to supporting the mental health and well-being of both pupils and staff, we recognise that parents and carers can be overlooked and often need additional support and guidance themselves. To meet this need, our therapists now provide online parent counselling sessions to help navigate the complexities of parenting.

Many children face challenges that can affect them emotionally, physically and psychologically. Having access to trained professionals can make a real difference to how they feel, behave and learn.  If you are a parent, looking for guidance from a professional, our confident parent online consultations can be booked as a single session with one of our team today. Please Book your Session, or BOOK a free 15 minute Discovery Call to learn more.

Our school counselling service is designed to work alongside each school’s ethos to help improve and nurture the emotional well-being of the whole school. This means not just support for pupils but also staff members and parents/carers. From one-to-one sessions to group workshops, we guarantee a safe and trusted environment for children to develop and thrive. Working in schools and colleges can be emotionally overwhelming for staff as well, that’s why we also provide staff supervision sessions, workshops and specialist INSET training sessions.

As a group of 40 registered therapists we currently operate within 35 UK schools and colleges. We have the capacity and expertise to build the appropriate package for your school and match your circumstances with a therapist whose professional background will best fit the needs of your school.

The Counselling provision at our school is now excellent. This is due to Chloe’s understanding of the needs of pupils, parents and the school as an organization. I would whole-heartedly recommend ‘Child in Time’ to head-teachers considering their own counselling provision.

Head-teacher of Woolmore School, Tower Hamlets

Parent Consultation: They have become much better at expressing their feelings and opening up to me and their siblings.

Parent, 2023

School Counselling: My son has completely turned around and is simply wonderful at the moment. He is back to his normal self at home, being very happy, caring and kind. He is especial kind and caring with his sister and just the best brother ever now. As a family, we are happy and content.

Parent, 2023

It is quality time well spent not letting pupils leave with negative patterns that make them vulnerable beyond school. One of the best decisions I have made.

Head-teacher of St Saviour’s School, Tower Hamlets

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

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.

This intervention has had an enormous, positive impact for us all and we sincerely hope that other families benefit from the same programme…his positive behaviour is having a really good impact on all elements of his school life.

Parent of child, age 8

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 ‘our therapist’s’ flexible and accommodating nature. Parents are very pleased, both the target children’s parents and the consultation one’s too.

SENCO, Rhodes Avenue School, Haringey

She is an outstanding therapist who has made a real difference to the lives of pupils in our school. ‘Our therapist’ possesses excellent skills in connecting with others, creating a safe space for staff, parents and pupils to discuss a range of issues. Her expertise, compassion, and dedication are truly commendable and we have really benefited from her thorough understanding of child development and psychology.

Deputy Head, Highgate Pre-Prep

I want to say thank you. I found these sessions very very helpful. I could talk about anything with you. I remember our first one, when I was so worried that everything was my fault. I can now see things more clearly.
