The Wellbeing Centre

Positive wellbeing and mental health are essential for everyone but we recognise that at different points in their life, students may face barriers to learning which may prevent them from achieving their full potential. To help students to overcome these barriers, Stantonbury School employs dedicated support staff who specialise in Counselling & Wellbeing. 

The Wellbeing Centre provides a number of additional support services and is open from 8:00am – 4:00pm Monday to Friday and during school holidays.

Wellbeing referrals can be made via Student Support Leaders or directly through the Wellbeing Team.

A full therapeutic assessment is carried out with the student before they are allocated a block of counselling. Our counselling sessions last for 50 minutes and are carried out on a weekly basis with one of our trained professionals. They provide an opportunity for students to express feelings without being judged and to work through some of the issues they may be facing in a safe, confidential, and supportive environment. All counselling sessions are confidential unless safeguarding issues arise where school policy for safeguarding will then be adhered to.  

Topics that might be explored in counselling include: 

  • Complex Anxiety 
  • Bereavement and Loss 
  • DV history
  • Depression and Low Mood 
  • Attachment 
  • Abuse 
  • Adverse childhood experiences (ACES)
  • Self-harm  
  • Identity
