Being a senior leader in any school environment can be an extremely isolated position. At Your Space we are passionate about supporting this group of professionals. Reflective space is not coaching or personal therapy. It is a safe space where Head Teachers can talk things through, things that at times cannot be talked about with any one else within the school setting. It is a key leadership tool. It offers a reflective space for Head Teachers to find their own solution as they often have the experience and the expertise but sometimes the space gets full up.
Your Space operates a full school day model. The company is based in a individual school within a designated therapy room. Children or young people access one to one therapy or dyadic therapy. A lunchtime self-referral system operates as does on site immediate staff consultancy with parental support being made available.
Your Space offer individually tailored training courses on a range of topics including attachment, systemic practice, and trauma.
Our consultancy service will impart knowledge and expertise in child development, building relationship, attachment, and trauma. Our aim in our approach is to influence and enhance the individual or group’s practice of the key figures in a child or young person life.
Group work is tailored to meet the needs of the identified groups. The therapists skilfully use creative means to engage children /young people and through third person work they will explore relevant issues. To date this included themes of relationships, bullying and classroom dynamics of isolation and power and control. Pre and post evaluations are completed with the pupils and a summary report with observations/reflections is provided to the Head Teacher.
