Therapy in Schools

We hear it on the news; we read it in the paper and are inundated with statistics as to how the mental health of our children is being eroded.  The pressures of every day life; the pressures teens – as well as those significantly younger – put on themselves; the pressures experienced at home and at school and on social media also, we are at the forefront of a mental health epidemic and we need to be able to offer parents and our children opportunities to find solutions.  Proactively, rather than reactively.

Whether it be counselling, hypnotherapy or a course on Mindfulness….WE ARE THRIVE aim to provide the therapists – clinical and complementary – to help our teens progress to become resilient and most of all happy as they enter their adult life.

If you don’t have the funds to have a Mental Health team in house, or if you want to add something to your offering, we have vastly experienced and empathetic therapists to help your wellbeing programme move forward. The therapists can work on a 1:1 basis or in a group format and we also run workshops sporadically that they may wish to join.

Contact WE ARE THRIVE on 07901 913625 to find out more of what we are able to offer your school…




Louise Lancaster (Talking Therapist), Maria Pieretti (The Human Toolbox Integrative Counsellor), Gill Ryan (Talking Therapy) Luisa Frisenda (Drama Therapy), Hanna Starr (Art Therapy), Nikki Phillips (Youth Mindfulness), Nicola Black (NLP, Counselling), Kathy Ponter (The Alexander Technique) and Jon Adkins (Hypnotherapy) have all worked in schools for many years and counselled both primary and secondary school children – locally and cross-county.




Michelle Chapman (on left) can work with adults/parents to build resilience and Chantek McNeilage – seen on the right – works on stress management with teachers and adults using her Mindful, Meditative and stress relieving programmes.

WE ARE THRIVE will come to your school and talk through the services that we are able to offer at a time convenient to yourself.  Whether it be 1:1 or group work – or even a Wellbeing Fair – this is not necessarily a service that the school has to pay for, but rather a ‘one-stop-shop’ that a school can signpost too as and when you feel parents need support for their children or the children want help themselves.

Additionally, and importantly, we are able to present to parents en masse to help with identifying issues, building on their resilience and their coping strategies too.  All too often, schools are the first port of call for help nowadays and we can help them seek out alternatives as well as manage the issues they are finding a concern.  Please give us a call today – we look forward to hearing from you.
