schools & Organisations

Our practitioners are able to work in school and work with children, you can refer a child for private play therapy or support at our hub, or we can offer fun and practical lessons and sessions around all aspects of mental health and well-being.

We work with children, young people and adults to help them to cope with anxiety, worry and boost low self-esteem as well as offering practical support to learn how to problem solve and set goals.

We also offer family therapy and life coaching to support the best long-term outcomes for the child.

What We Do




We deliver training in all aspects of mental health, we specialise in: Emotional Literacy; Understanding Behaviour; Supporting Anxious Pupils; Staff wellbeing

1:1 Pupil support delivered by our Community Mental Health Practitioners, both online or face-to-face



We have online lessons and schemes of work for your teachers to deliver. We include a video, lesson plan and resources.

Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision helps to ensure that the supervisee has a safe space to reflect and offload. This leads to an increased skill set as well as improving mental health and wellbeing

At Bridge the Gap we value the schools that we work with and are proud of our relationships with them. We support schools in many different ways:

  • INSET days on aspects of mental health 

  • Emotional Literacy training and support

  • Community teacher training mornings

  • Staff well-being workshops

  • Bridge the Gap School Ambassador programme

  • Training Hours - 'The Power of Positive Relationships' & 'Emotional Literacy in the Classroom'

  • 1:1 pupil support

  • Clinical supervision

  • Assembly, lesson and small work delivery

  • Drop-in days for children


Our training focuses on mental health and well-being as well as behaviour and de-escalation strategies. We are also able to come and audit the school environment to ensure that your school is being trauma responsive and not just informed.

Our popular course 'Supporting Your Child's Mental Health' is a three week course for parents that we run privately: we also deliver this for schools for up to ten parents at a time, we also have our other parent workshops that schools can choose to provide for their parents. We can attend events to offer support at your own well-being events; if you have a PTA then get in touch to find out how they might be able to access funding for our services.

I would strongly recommend Jennifer for CPD on emotional literacy and supporting children's mental health. She is extremely knowledgeable and able to bravely share her own experiences and the impact trauma in childhood can have on an individual later in life. Lots of strategies were shared to enable immediate implementation. Jennifer was extremely easy to talk to and offered advice when asked. 'Relationships equal connection'; Jennifer definitely connected with her audience!
