Proven 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, across all educational settings.

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 them distress.

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

The Need for Teacher Wellbeing Support

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

Like students, many teachers will have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

How well teachers cope is an obvious contributing factor to the success of your students.
