CBT programmes to support mental health in schools.



Many educators are concerned how to support students and staff with their mental health. Mental health awareness training is great but often doesn't go far enough. You have the awareness but now what do you do? You need proven interventions that can easily be used in-house to help students, and staff, achieve positive mental health.

CBT4schools has a range of programmes to suit all requirements and budgets. Our proven programmes are written to be run in-house by school staff with no ongoing costs.

You can purchase a whole school programme that comes with in-house training OR buy our easy to facilitate individual programmes that you can download and use immediately with students


What we do and why we do it.



Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is one of the most widely used and successful therapeutic interventions. A fairly prescriptive intervention, it is perfect to be used in schools and is recommended by DfE and NHS

In any therapeutic intervention, the relationship between therapist and client is one of the most, if not the most, crucial elements. By training and empowering school staff to use CBT we are improving the chances of any intervention being successful.

CBT is a talking therapy where the therapist works with the client to change thoughts and effect change. There is no psychoanalysis involved, or any deep delving into the psyche.

Samantha Garner, founder of Garner Education Services Ltd., is a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and has worked in a school as a SENCo so she understands the challenges faced supporting mental health in schools. She is a published author with Routledge Press (Mental Health in Education - Building good foundations) and regularly travels nationally and internationally to speak at conferences and provide training.
