Why Choose Us as Your Counselling Service Provider?

With over 20 years’ experience working with a wide variety of schools, colleges, and universities, we understand the important attributes that school staff and senior leadership look for in a counselling service provider.

Through this understanding, the KCS team have and are able to continue forming long-lasting, successful, counselling partnerships with educational establishments, to deliver highly-effective initiatives for student and teacher wellbeing.

The Core Reasons Schools Choose to Partner with KCS

  • Relatability

    • At all times we make sure you’re able to resonate with and relate to the nature of the work we do
       

  • Clarity

    • It’s important to demystify the essence of a good therapeutic relationship, and so a key focus of the team is clarifying why the way we work is able to generate the great results it does

    • Creating this level of clarity makes it easier for you to see direct correlations between improvements in student and teacher wellbeing (link new wellbeing) and the support we’re providing 
       

  • Adaptability

Additional Elements of the KCS Approach to School Counselling

Through working with lots of different schools over a long period of time, the KCS team have seen many changes in school culture and how they work with their students.

In particular, we have seen that when schools shift from managing challenging student behaviours via a punitive approach and start using a trauma-informed approach, the results for both parties are significantly improved.

If your school is aiming to create a culture shift in how to manage difficult behaviours by adopting this wellbeing approach, the KCS team can support.

Lastly, KCS counsellors adopt the “whole school” approach to wellbeing…

This initiative was produced back in 2015 by Public Health England and the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition.

With the whole school approach, all school staff, leadership teams, parents/carers, counsellors, and the wider community, must be committed and working together to promote and deliver emotional health and wellbeing to students in a truly holistic way.
