Therapy services

Talocher School’s dedicated therapy room provides our students with quick and easy access to eight different types of therapy, including:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Art therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Play therapy
  • Speech and language therapy
  • Equine therapy
  • Body awareness therapy
  • Counsellors, providing access to a psychology and psychiatry

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
