Schools are experiencing more pressure than ever to meet the Mental health and emotional wellbeing of both pupils and staff.
Teachers and support staff naturally become attached to, protective of, and concerned for the children/young people they educate. Today’s classrooms are filled with pupils who’ve experienced trauma through carrying the weight of poverty, abuse, violence, neglect, illness, divorce, death, loss and more. After a period of time daily reminders of the struggles they face, and the human desire to support and relieve them, teaching staff begin to suffer the symptoms of compassion fatigue (Secondary Trauma).
By offering a therapeutic service within school creates a dedicated time and space for your pupils and staff to reflect providing them with the opportunities to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience enhancing their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
