Testimonials from Parents

|

“My son has felt so special having his therapy time in school, he has grown in confidence during some really difficult times and seems so much happier and I put a lot of that down to the time he has spent with (his therapist) who has been so helpful and supportive.”

Parent

|

“My husband and I feel that (the therapist) understood our son and our family right from the very start, she has been so helpful and supportive and gone above and beyond to provide extra reports to get our son the help he needs. We warmed to her from the very beginning, she has helped our son so much, he has changed for the better in many ways and giving me the opportunity to be in therapy with my son has benefitted our relationship no end, and hopefully for the rest of our lives.”

Primary School Inclusion Manager

“Your Space provides a highly professional service that has become an invaluable part of our work with vulnerable children. The level of support and advice our school receives is outstanding and the counsellor has become an integral member of our inclusion team. Your Space has been tremendously successful supporting children from Year R to Year 6 with an incredibly wide range of needs. The counselling programme has had significant impact on all children involved and has resulted in higher attendance, greater engagement in school life, improvements in behaviour and enhanced learning. I can not imagine our school without Your Space!”

The service is now an integral part of our work with vulnerable children and it is difficult to imagine how we could ever meet some children’s needs without it”
