What is Here4You

Here4You is a counselling service that provides high quality, professional mental health services to students of London secondary schools and colleges. Here4You also provides support to secondary school and college staff in order to promote wellbeing. Our qualified counsellors are trained in the humanistic approach, which allows them to provide a professional, evidence based service in collaboration with the young person and school staff.

Counselling in schools is a very accessible and acceptable way for young people to receive the support they need. It can play a key role in early intervention and proactively change the lives of students allowing them to build resilience and obtain life goals.


Here4You offers the following key services:

· Individual Counselling

· Group Work

· Peer Support Training

· Staff training, reflexive groups and consultation

· Rapid Response


The key strengths of school-based counselling are that it is perceived as a highly accessible service that increases the extent to which young people have an independent, supportive professional to talk with about difficulties in their lives

Increasing evidence suggests that school-based humanistic counselling is effective at reducing psychological distress and helping young people achieve their personal goals. It has been evaluated positively by students and school staff; and is an effective means of bringing about improvements in students' mental health and emotional wellbeing.


The General Aims of Here4You Include:

· Offering a ‘best fit’ service for each individual school

· Being integrated into the broader pastoral care service provided

· Involving young people in partnership in all levels of the service

· Providing a professional, evidence based service in collaboration with the young people and school staff

· Building trusting relationships with students and staff

· Expressing and exploring thoughts and feelings

· Developing social interaction skills

· Improving self-image and self-confidence

· Identifying avenues for change
