  • OCD
  • Fears
  • Spelling/ learning strategies for dyslexia and other learning differences
  • Exam stress

Many children feel an improvement after just one session- and they are resourced to be better able to deal with their world.

Schools have found having Jackie there regularly as a point of reference for troubles children relieves the pressure from teaching staff and saves on absenteeism and disruption during the school week.


Young people are shown how everyone internalises the world in a unique way, and are totally in control of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours

A group that ran in Stokesley School in 2009 with 14 children at risk of exclusion resulted in a 75%+ reduction in behavioural reports following the 6 session programme- report can be read here (attach ‘Evaluation of Cool4School document)

  • Feeling calm- Managing stress/ anxiety
