The Road Centre provides a professional counselling service in schools for children and young people. 

With all age groups, but especially with children, our counsellors adopt creative approaches and use pictures, drawing, clay, sand, soft toys and various objects, to help them tell and explain their story. Children and young people can struggle to put their difficulties into words and what they are feeling can come out in changed behaviour patterns. Sometimes adults, not understanding such behaviour, can become critical and controlling. 

The counsellors at The Road Centre adapt a very different approach and seek to understand the child or young person and work with them to increase their understanding and explore ways to move forward.

Our school counsellors are all fully qualified, hold a current DBS check and adhere to the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

“St Aloysius has worked with the Road Centre for three years and currently have a counsellor for up to two days a week. The quality of the counselling service and support for our pupils is exceptional. We have found the care, compassion and empathy for our pupils to be first class. Outstanding relationships have been build with pupils, parents and school staff. As a result of the counselling the pupils’ academic progress has accelerated quickly, more significantly than this, the pupil’s sense of self worth, confidence and well being has been supported to an exceptional level. I recommend The Road Centre to you without reservation and hesitation.”
