My name is Theresa Kyeyune, I am the School Counsellor at John Perryn. My role is to provide emotional support to children, parents and carers within the school community.
A bit about me...
I am a qualified Person Centred Therapist with a Certificate in Play Therapy. It has always been my ambition to help and support children and adults with their feelings and emotions. Various experiences such as trauma, bereavement or loss can have a major affect on how we grow and learn. Therefore early intervention and support can be vital in the healing process.
The effects of COVID-19 and the change in how we live our daily lives, will no doubt have an affect on our mental health and well-being. We at John Perryn want to do all we can to support our children and families at this time. It can be a very anxious time for many, and we want you to know that we are available if you need support with any mental health issues.
I very much look forward to working with the families of the John Perryn community. Please do contact the school office if you need any further information.
'My Time' – A Place to Talk
'My Time' is the new name for our lunch time drop in session. This is available for children to come and talk about anything they may be worried or concerned about. The children are welcome to come alone or with a friend. If you don't want your child to access this service, please do let the office know.
