Here at Demeter House, we are able to offer a range of therapeutic services through our Wellbeing Team. We currently have BACP registered qualified counsellors and Life Coaches as part of our team.
BACP Registered Counsellors
Abigail Denny and Samantha Brightmore are both qualified counsellors, registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). They work with students across all year groups for regular 50 minute individual sessions and can help support students to better understand and cope with mental health and wellbeing issues such as low self esteem, anxiety and other difficulties.
Life Coaching is different to counselling or psychotherapy in that it helps students to understand how they think and how they can take actions to achieve their goals. This can help to overcome short term difficulties such as managing changes or achieving personal outcomes. Our Life Coaches often work with students who need extra support to understand their behaviour and support them to make stepped changes. Simon Chudley and Gaz Blackbourn are both qualified and experienced Life Coaches with experience of working with a wide range of students across all age groups.
