Pastoral & Counselling

Our care and support for learners goes beyond what is available at our centres.  Learners are supported from point of referral, with escorted visits to our centres, through to the transition back to school or on to college.  We offer learners support at meetings they may need to attend or interviews as they progress.

We are able to work closely with parents and carers to ensure they are included in the referral process and at all learner reviews. Support with learner attendance can be given to families when necessary and we can also support parents at agency meetings.

Our dedicated Pastoral Manager has the time to ensure learners and parents feel fully supported.

My role is to support learners and families across all services.  I am involved with the referral process, meeting learners in their school and also parents on a home visit.

I am the Inclusion Hampshire representative at any agency meetings in which families may be involved and will offer support and mediation to best serve the needs of the learner.

I also provide support with the return to school,transititon to college, or other opportunities.

Throughout my career I have been privileged to work with a variety of young people, including those with Learning Disabilities/ASC, limited or non-verbal communication (using communication aids).

My role at Inclusion Hampshire is to provide therapeutic support to learners aged  13 and over. 

As a qualified Counsellor, I have significant experience in working with young people from differing backgrounds. I am able to work with young people who are experiencing issues which may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Behavioural Issues
  • Self Harm
  • Trauma
  • Bereavement
  • Gender/Sexuality

If learners ever have any worries or concerns, they can come  and talk it over with me.  I will listen and support in a confidential and non-judgemental way.

Learners have the opportunity to have a informal chat with me or book a longer appointment.
