In-School Counselling Service

Elevate Your School's Well-being and Counselling Services for Children and Young People!

At Alliance, we're proud to be the leading independent provider of local mental health and emotional well-being services for children and young people. With a dedicated team of over 40 qualified psychological therapists and trainees, we're committed to delivering quality-focused, evidence-based therapies and support over 3,500 children, young people, and families annually.

Our services are commissioned through various funding streams, including Local Authorities, schools, and the Tees Valley ICB, and we take the lead on the Hartlepool and Stockton National Trailblazer for Mental Health Support Teams. This includes a local 'Getting Help’ Offer and Tees Therapeutic Offer, which specifically assist children, young people, and their families dealing with attachment and trauma-related difficulties.

Our commitment to you

Unlock the power of partnership with Alliance Service Level Agreement.

The benefits of our service include:


We will provide you with a qualified and experienced psychological therapist to work within your school, offering a range of psychological therapies and interventions for children, young people, and families with mild to moderate mental health concerns.


We will provide you with professional consultation on a monthly or termly basis, bringing school leaders and Alliance representatives together to discuss children and young people who you think would benefit from therapeutic support. We will help you to identify key themes in school, agree approaches and strategies, share resources, and consider universal and targeted group work. A small number of children may need additional support through multi-agency meetings and high levels of risk support, in these instances we will support children and young people presenting with moderate-severe mental health presentations to access more specialist CAMHS Services.


We will contribute to your school's holistic approach to student mental health and wellbeing witha focus on prevention, early intervention, and solutions as part of the i-THRIVE framework for system change.

Our existing partnerships with specialist children and adolescent mental health services, health and social care enables us to expertly navigate complex systems of care, ensuring children receive the right support at the right time and remain in education.

For young people aged 16 and older, we can recommend alternative services funded through the NHS, or currently provided by Alliance to optimise the value of your service level agreement with us.


We will provide discharge reports for all therapeutic work completed as well as an annual impact report to demonstrate improved outcomes for children and young people including your commitment to children’s mental health.


As part of our Service Level Agreement, you will gain access to our online school portal. Here, you can explore an array of FREE psychoeducational Resources, policy templates, and guidance on WSA to well-being.

Additionally, you will enjoy FREE access to accredited CPD training, Including all training resources, which empower schools to independently deliver a range of psychoeducation.
