Family Emotional Wellbeing Consultations

Our school is pleased to inform you of an exciting support service being offered to family, carers and friends of our pupils by Kerry Westbrook, our School Counsellor.

Families can at times find themselves in emotional difficulties and not know where or how to access the right support for their particular needs, Kerry can offer confidential support, consultations, information and advice through her regular Consultation Days here at our school.

Confidential appointments or enquiries can be made directly with Kerry by contacting
her on 07544 750 390.

 

"I am Kerry Westbrook, your school counsellor.  In 2000, I studied and gained qualifications in psychology. It then felt a natural progression to take up a diploma in therapeutic counselling, after which I qualified as a therapeutic integrative counsellor in 2006. I worked for St. Lukes Hospice and Thurrock Mind during my time studying and then CAMHS. After joining the Wickford Cluster schools in 2012, my portfolio has increased to 7 schools across the area.

 I am very passionate about supporting the emotional well-being and promoting good mental health of our young people, their families and the school staff; taking care of them during the school day. Married with 3 grown up sons, I have a vast amount of life experience to draw on, as well as my counselling skills and having connections with many outside agencies to be able to offer holistic support that is child centred.

Please ask a member of staff for me to contact you if you would like to book a confidential consultation."
