counselling children in schools

We provide access to professionally accredited counselling to over 10,000 school children in Surrey and the surrounding counties.

We believe that Pupils do better academically when they feel emotionally supported.

We are a registered charity providing counselling services to children in primary and secondary schools across four counties: Surrey, Hampshire, Middlesex and Berkshire.

The Valley Trust

Our Counsellors are all qualified, experienced and professionally accredited, and as an organisation we have an excellent track record. We counsel up to 1,000 children a year.

Using schools as the setting for counselling is an effective way of making counselling available and accessible to pupils who may be experiencing emotional distress and/or behavioural problems – it is also a cost-effective delivery path.

We support individual children aged between 4 and 17. A range of experiences – including bereavement, family break up, family and peer relationship difficulties, anxiety, and bullying – can lead to deterioration in a pupil’s behaviour or ability to function effectively in school.

Whether you are a teacher, parent or anyone else in a role who promotes the wellbeing of young people, we would be pleased to discuss how best to access our service for children in a school which is using a Valley Trust counsellor.

We pride ourselves on excellent outcomes, and look forward to hearing from you.
