Mental Health and Wellbeing Services for Students and Teachers

Teacher wellbeing initiative

The KCS team provide a range of counselling and wellbeing support solutions to young learners, students, and teaching staff.

The Need for Student Wellbeing Support

The simple act of speaking confidentially with a school counsellor can prove to be a real gamechanger.

When young people are provided with a safe space to be open and speak truthfully without judgment, tangible life transformation becomes possible as they discover how to cope with situations causing distress.

The KCS team are all too aware of the challenges schools and young people have been facing, working with an increasing number of schools across the South East, helping school leaders deliver the support programmes they need.

Why Students Come for Counselling

The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic is currently a significant reason for students needing help. The long term consequences may continue for many months if not years to come.

The Importance of Teacher Wellbeing Support

Whilst teaching is one of the most rewarding careers, it can also be psychologically challenging.
