‘Talkspace’ is run by Judith Clark, a trained teacher and social worker who worked previously for the Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service.  Talkspace provides interventions for children in a range of areas including behaviour, bereavement, parental separation and ‘just not coping’. 

Talkspace

It has also allowed families who do not normally seek the school's support to come forward where a parent or child has felt the need.

There have been a number of children for whom the

Covid-19 pandemic has increased their levels of anxiety, there has also been depression, anger against the situation and feelings of hopelessness. In these instances, Talkspace has been able to give practical guidance of ways in which they may be able to manage and reduce these anxieties both in school and to those at home.
