Each of the eighteen Comprehensive schools in RCT have an Eye to Eye School Counsellor, as does the additional need schools, pupil referral units and EOTAS. We are also developing a service to Primary schools, taking referrals from year six primary aged children with bereavement, family illness and separation issues
The counselling service has been well received in all of our schools and has the support and commitment of head teachers, staff and especially the link staff.
In each school, the child or young person can request an appointment through their head of year or link staff member.
Self-referral is also strongly encouraged by contacting the Eye to Eye counsellor directly, or contacting Eye to Eye’s main office by telephone, text or e-mail.
