The Nurture Room

Are you ready for change?
We are.

The Nurture Room was started in 2013 by experienced therapist Kathy Thompson, providing an emotional well-being service to primary schools and private counselling to individuals of all ages in need of emotional support.

Now, in 2021, the Nurture Room has expanded with two new team members and a range of new services!

Kathy will still offer private counselling at reasonable rates to improve the emotional well-being of both adults and children, as well as in-school emotional support, but is now joined by Kahlia Bament and Romea Cafasso.

New team, new services

Both our new team members are experienced primary teachers with a passion for nurturing mental well-being who are working hard to establish 'The Retreat', a new kind of kids club with a daytime session for home-educated children, and another after-school session for those that attend school but find it difficult to cope.

Kahlia and Romea also provide private tuition individually tailored to the needs of the tutee, but with an emphasis on growing their confidence and resilience to develop them into independent learners who feel ready to take risks and solve problems.

For schools, the Nurture Room team now offer mental-health awareness and resilience training. Tailored to the needs of the individual setting, the training will provide insight into the mental health issues of children and staff within school and how to provide the appropriate support. This can be paired with an ongoing telephone support service provided by the Nurture Room.

Finally, psychoeducation and emotion management training is offered in-school for children in Key Stage 2 to help them understand why they feel the way they do and teach them strategies for dealing with emotional difficulties.

Find out more about the Nurture Room team in our Meet the team section, explore our offerings in more detail in Our Services section, or contact us if you'd like more information.

Many of our services offer a free initial session, so we look forward to hearing from you soon!

The expressive power of art

Art is a particularly powerful tool for children who may struggle to express complex feelings through words alone.

Kathy has been an amazing help with our daughter who suffers from anxiety. The change since seeing her has been outstanding. I would certainly highly recommend her.
