School Counselling

At Cheney we have two school counsellors who offer one to one counselling sessions. We address a wide range of issues including anxiety, low mood, bereavement, friendship difficulties, family problems or just a sense of things not being right. By thinking out loud with a trained counsellor, students often see ways forward which they hadn’t seen before.

We take both confidentiality and safeguarding very seriously and adhere to the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

The Counselling Team

  • Sam Johnson, MBACP (Lead Counsellor) - in school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays

  • James Rogers, MBACP - in school Wednesdays and Thursdays

Booking appointments

Students can self-refer by dropping by the counselling offices at break or lunch, or by emailing or they can also ask their year teams to submit a referral on their behalf. Parents and carers can also email the same address, though the decision to try counselling rests with the student themselves. 

We work from W12 and W66, on opposite ends of the ground floor of Wainwright Building.
