School Refusal

School refusal is a growing problem, with pupils struggling to cope with anxiety linked to the academic and social aspects of school life. On this pathway we’ll support the young person to explore their negative associations with school and suggest ways to reprogramme these thoughts. We’ll encourage small, manageable steps towards reintegrating, including starting the sessions at home with the aim of moving them to the school setting.

Length of treatment
10 sessions delivered weekly.
