How long will counselling last?

Counselling will usually last for 1-2 terms, thus providing enough time for issues to be explored in a meaningful way. However, the counsellor will regularly review the usefulness of counselling with a child and if the child no longer feels the need for counselling the sessions will come to an end.


Where and when does counselling take place?

Usually, a small, private room is made available in your child’s school. Sessions last up to fifty minutes (depending on the circumstances), and appointment times can be varied during the school day.
