Beth Robertson is a qualified accredited counsellor.

She is here to help you. It’s all confidential!


Why might you want to meet with her?

There may be a variety of reasons why you might want to ask for counselling. In the past, Beth has worked with students who have struggled with anxiety, drug and alcohol problems, depression, self-harm, family/parental/ relationship difficulties, friendship issues, bereavement or family illness, and questions about sexuality and gender identity.


How do you meet with her?

You can ask directly for a referral to see Beth by emailing her on or approaching Beth in person; she has a desk in the Wellbeing Hub on the field. You can also ask via your Form Tutor. The service is confidential; you can work exclusively with Beth or she can help you access other appropriate agencies. Please contact Beth if you have any concerns or are worried; she will always try to see you as soon as possible.


Single Session Therapy

Additionally to the regular school counselling service, Beth Robertson also offers ‘Single Session Therapy’. This service will offer you a single solution focused session and it is different to the walk-in service listed below. Referral requests will need to be made via your Form Tutor/member of the Sixth Form Team, so that Beth can assess your needs via an electronic referral form before your single session.
