Therapy services

Queenswood School has a dedicated Psychology Assessment Consultancy and Therapy Team (PACTT). This enables us to offer young people access to appropriate therapeutic and counselling support. The PACTT team is able to provide a range of in house therapies but also has access to a range of external partners allowing us to provide the following:

  • Art Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Counselling
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
  • Equine Therapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Play Therapy
  • Speech and Language Therapy (SALT)
  • Access to a Psychiatrist

Bespoke therapy packages

We are also able to source therapy from other sites within the Priory Group, such as Woodbourne Priory hospital, Birmingham (45 miles away) to create bespoke packages, where required. In some cases we can arrange therapy afterhours in our residential homes and during school holidays.

Whilst it is always up to the young person if they want to participate, we believe that therapy can be extremely beneficial. Careful and well-informed therapeutic interventions can help young people to manage their conditions by:

  • Improving communication skills
  • Improving their capacity to learn
  • Making teachers aware of idiosyncrasies that pupils have
  • Giving pupils opportunities to reflect on their feelings and experiences
  • Improving relationships
  • Helping pupils to learn how to cope with adversities
  • Allowing pupils to move on in a positive frame of mind
  • Improving self-esteem
  • Improving self-regulation
  • Improving distress tolerance
