Event runs over TWO days (Friday and Monday)
All of our schools have pupils who have attachment difficulties. The evidence categorically indicates that these children and young people significantly underachieve unless they receive support and intervention. Children can experience attachment difficulties as a consequence of trauma which may be caused by: parental absence or unavailability, parental depression, domestic abuse, children affected by migration, alcoholism in the family or removal from the birth home as is the case for looked after children. Some children with autism can also experience attachment difficulties.

®Theraplay and Counselling for Children
With over seven years of experience in an educational setting, Fiona is a counsellor in the person centred modality of therapy and a play therapist using the principles of ®Theraplay.
Having worked with mainstream, SEN and vulnerable children as well as in a youth agency and secondary school, Fiona is able to deliver a bespoke programme either on a 1:1 or group basis to address many of the well- being issues children are facing such as anxiety, bereavement, self-harm, low self-esteem and anger.
Through informal but structured play sessions using the principles of ®Theraplay and mindfulness, along with counselling skills, the children are able to address any social, emotional or behaviour issues in a safe and fun environment. This support can be delivered on site at your school and is charged at £45.00 per hour.
Building Resilience, Improving Outcomes
In partnership with the Local Authority, KCA Associates, Swan and Fairfields Teaching Schools, we are offering you free training to explore how to improve standards by meeting the needs of vulnerable learners. This might include Looked After Pupils, migrant populations, children living in families with domestic or alcohol abuse or any other child who has suffered trauma and attachment difficulties at an early age.
