Think2Speak Nurture Groups

Think2Speak’s Nurture groups are aimed at boosting self-esteem and confidence.  These groups are an intervention aimed at promoting self-esteem and participation in young people.

The sessions are based on the principles of group therapy with the aims of:

  • Increasing classroom participation
  • Increasing self-esteem in young children
  • Building resilience and coping mechanisms
  •  Building social skills
  •  To give less confident children a chance to shine in a positive and warm group setting

Ofsted recommend Nurture Groups to improve attendance, increase educational engagement, foster emotional wellbeing and reduces aggression and incidents of withdrawn behaviour.

The participants are identified by staff in schools to take part in a weekly 1 hour session for 6 weeks grouped by year or key stage. The groups are facilitated by Think2Speak counsellors, all of whom are fully qualified, experienced working with young people and members of the BACP.

The six week programme costs:

  • Group of up to 4 children with 1 counsellor - £360 Member school £540 Non Member school
  • Group of up to 8 children with 2 counsellors - £720 Member school £1080 Non Member school
  • Membership costs £270 per year per setting

My son aged 15 years received 6 counselling sessions at his School with a Think 2 Speak counsellor. He was able to talk through his thoughts and feelings about the challenges he was struggling to cope with. We were able to notice an incredibly difference in his attitude at home, he has since been able to talk more respectfully and has calmed down his negative behaviour towards his family members. We believe his counsellor offered him a safe and confidential place and challenged his own negative thoughts about himself. He has developed a deeper awareness of himself and can now take care of himself more safely. He has grown in confidence and self esteem through this process.

Some children find it a real challenge to focus on academic work if they have a range of worries and concerns in or out of the school environment. We firmly believe that happy children progress and learn.

Working with Think2Speak has enabled us to create a bespoke
PSHE curriculum which meets the needs of our children.

Having access to counsellors, specially trained to work with children, has enabled us to break down some barriers and we can see a real difference with our pupils as a result. Parents have welcomed the opportunity for their child, or in some cases children, to have access to such a service in the school environment where the children feel safe.

Think2Speak have responded to our needs extremely quickly and effectively. They are the upmost professionals and passionate about the wellbeing of all pupils. They have a vast knowledge and experience base. Any support with policy and procedure is forthcoming and they always offer a friendly ear for advice either via the telephone or e mail.

The emotional health and well-being of our students and staff is extremely important. Through our school systems and ethos we strive to ensure that all individual needs are met.
Training we have received from Think2Speak has provided staff with the opportunity for self-reflection and also to consider how the good practice in the school supports our students well-being.
Becoming a Think2Speak school is an important part of our ongoing commitment to developing our provision further.
