SESN are offering counselling services with the support of NW Counselling Hub to enhance it's nurturing environment. 

With students who have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, it is important to offer these young people with an opportunity to communicate their experiences and anxieties and feel a sense of security and a chance to be heard.

NW Counselling Hub services are provided by specialist and experiences BACP registered counselling staff who have vast experience of supporting young people. 



  • School-based counselling can stop mental health problems from developing further – this early intervention treatment can stop conditions accelerating into something more serious and complex, and offer children the tools to recognise when they are experiencing difficulties with their mental wellbeing.
  • School-based counselling is easy for children to access.
  • Children and young people are more likely to see an in-house school-based counsellor compared to non-school-based services; it cuts down their fears of stigma.
  • School-based counselling helps with behaviour and learning.
  • School-based counselling works as a parallel support alongside CAMHS and reduces referrals to these specialist and costly services.
  • School-based counselling is cost effective. One session of CAMHS costs the same as five sessions of school counselling


Our Principles

Every individual should be continually encouraged to develop and succeed by uncovering their abilities and talents

Exposure to new experiences, venture and skills are essential to develop a young person’s confidence and desire to learn

An educational environment should be inviting and a place in which young people want to be because it meets their needs and their interests

Innovative without the prescription of linear education
