School-Based Counsellor

 Mrs J Morton-Brown School-Based CounsellorI am the school’s professional counsellor and have particular experience with children and young adults. Counselling is a free service available for students. Counselling is there to help support the school’s students. I currently work at 2 schools within the Braintree area. The school-based service brings counselling to students in a place that is familiar, safe and secure. If students are able to receive emotional support from a professional counsellor, they will have a greater opportunity to work towards their full potential.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a way of helping students with personal issues and difficulties. This gives the student the opportunity to increase self-awareness and to help understand their own problems as well as developing strategies to cope with change. Students may see me for a variety of reasons such as bereavement, self-image and self-esteem, relationship issues, anxiety and stress, gender and sexuality, feelings of loneliness and isolation and generalised feelings of unhappiness.
