The educational psychology service evaluates the Counselling service which is currently available to all secondary school pupils. Pupils have accessed the service from across the age stages and for a variety of needs such as anxiety, low mood, stress and relationships.
The most recent data (2017 – 2019) reports that mean scores from the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) pre and post show statistically significant results in a positive direction.
At the end of their counselling sessions, young people report positively about their counselling experience.
Evaluation is ongoing.
