Online School Staff Supervision

‘I always leave here with more clarity’

What is staff supervision?

Staff supervision sessions are a series of 1:1 meetings with an experienced child/adolescent therapist. Each one lasts 50mins.  These take place online, often once every half term (more if required). 

They are often taken up by staff who are responsible for managing child protection issues or working with complex children and families. The idea is to discuss school related situations in a confidential space with a mental health professional.   

The session is specifically a space for personal reflection on the emotional impact of working in schools/colleges as well as time to consider the meaning behind challenging behaviours or professional relationships. In addition, supervisors can offer practical suggestions and resources to support you in your work.

Let us know how many staff in your school will be receiving the support and we will give you the annual cost. There are reductions for larger bookings.

How does it work?

Once contracts have been signed, Child in Time matches you up with a supervisor who then agrees provisional dates across the year for all staff entering the programme. Dates are re-confirmed at the start of each term and online links are sent on the week of the supervision.  

We look forward to supporting your staff in a safe and confidential space.

What staff say is helpful about staff supervision…

‘..being able to speak candidly about the challenges I am facing and to receive supporting feedback in a constructive way.’

…having a space to discuss negative aspects of work without it having an impact on other people’


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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
