Teacher in the classroom

Caspari Foundation's trained and experienced educational psychotherapists help children and young people overcome emotional barriers to learning and development,  barriers that might manifest as failure to learn, violent and disruptive behaviour, emotional withdrawal or physical symptoms such as loss of speech.

We use Educational psychotherapy - a way of working with children who have emotional, learning and behavioural difficulties that combines teaching with therapeutic exploration of the emotional factors which may get in the way of learning. It produces real benefits in terms of childrens emotional well-being, capacity to learn and engagement with / attendance at school.

Our experienced therapists work with schools to identify and support children and young people who are struggling by providing one-to-one and group support work, support for parent/carers and the wider family, support and training for school staff.

"Good mental health (or emotional or psychological well-being) is as important as physical health, and without it children and young people will not achieve the good outcomes Every Child Matters is designed to promote"
