There is clear evidence that emotional well-being is a key indicator for academic achievement, and subsequently improved outcomes in later life.

As part of our wraparound pastoral care at Stowe, we have a team of therapists who support the well-being of our pupils and staff. 

“Counselling has taught me a lot especially to be okay with myself.” Pupil 2018

Research has shown that when someone is having a hard time, talking about what they’re going through is one of the most helpful things to be able to do.

Therapy provides a safe and confidential space for someone to talk, enabling them to work through issues and explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Our dedicated team offers short and long-term support, helping to empower individuals to overcome their mental health challenges and take steps towards a more positive way of life.

Our team of therapists are all qualified in their field, following the standards and guidelines outlined by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As registered members of the BACP, they undertake continual professional training to maintain the highest level and in line with current thinking.

At the same time, their substantial experience in working in the school environment gives them the knowledge and expertise to support young people facing life’s difficulties.

“Sometimes the counselling sessions were challenging but they really helped and now my friends have commented that I’ve got my things together – thank you.” Pupil 2018

“You’ve really helped me, thank you so much.” Pupil 2021
