How Counselling Support Services Improve Student Mental Health & Wellbeing

In-house counselling has proven to deliver many benefits to student and schools, including;

 

  • A reduction in the escalation of student problems over time when emotional or behavioural concerns are identified at an early stage
     

  • Improvement in staff empathy and better understanding of the students whose behaviours and emotions staff are trying to manage
     

    • This being due to the expert guidance staff receive from their counsellor partners
       

  • A proven decrease in students experiencing difficulties and an increase in their strengths, when receiving therapy from KCS counsellors
     

    • Research data further to a therapeutic outcomes analysis for 2019/2020, using the Goodman's Strengths & Difficulties Outcome Measuring Tool (SDQ)
