The Nyland Therapy Centre exists in order to help meet the needs of the whole child. The importance of an Emotional Quotient is acknowledged and valued here. The Centre is a place where pupils like to come because they feel safe and understood.
It is a space where they can express themselves and know that they will be heard and listened to. It is a busy place where pupils have the space to express themselves in ways the best suit them. The pupils love coming to the centre and have good relationships with the therapists. Our therapies include drama therapy, play therapy, art therapy, counselling and occupational therapy.
All our therapists are well qualified and experienced in their fields and all have had previous teaching experience or time working with children. They are dedicated to helping pupils and work systemically with parents, carers, families and staff who are involved with the children.
They communicate with teachers, contribute to external and internal agency meetings and give feedback within the boundaries of their professional obligations in order to create a ‘joined up service’. The Centre is a warm, calm and caring environment that feels welcoming and where pupils are always happy to attend therapy.
