Counselling Service

About the service

John Smeaton Academy 'Unravel' service is for all students and staff.  Students can bring any issue to counselling, there is nothing too big or too small.  The counsellor is trained to work with many issues people face today including anxiety, loss, separation, anger, relationship problems and fears.  The counselling room is located near the dinning room

Referral Procedure

Referrals to Unravel are made through the school's safeguarding manager.  Students may choose to refer themselves.  Parents, teachers or students can refer others.  

Confidentiality

Counselling is confidential.  All information shared in the counselling room will be treated in a discreet manner.  However, the counsellor may need to share some information with other members of staff to further support a child, this action is taken with the student’s permission and agreed within a verbal contract. If the safety of a student or another person is at risk confidentiality may be broken but the student will be informed before this happens and the child will remain, at all times, central to the process. Any information sharing will be limited within school to the pastoral safeguarding team, although other agencies may need to be informed.

Teaching and Learning

The counsellor will, at the request of the school community, deliver information to students and staff to further assist their emotional wellbeing. This will include ensuring that resources and guidance are provided for out of school hours.
