YOGA and mindfulness are on the timetable for pupils and staff at one Hertford primary school this autumn.
Hertford St Andrew’s C of E Primary has seen a huge improvement in attendance levels and behaviour since it introduced its more nurturing approach and is launching even more new initiatives this term.
With exam results just a few days away and stress levels rising, Hertfordshire’s GPs are recommending that young people feeling anxious log on for free online counselling and support at Kooth.com.
Anyone aged between 10 and 25 and registered with a Hertfordshire GP surgery can sign up anonymously and have an online chat with a fully-trained therapist. Counsellors can help with lots of different problems, including exam-related stress, family problems, eating disorders, loneliness, bullying, anxiety and depression.
Children and young people in Hertfordshire can now get free online emotional and mental health support using a website called Kooth.com.
If you are aged between 10 and 25 and registered with a Hertfordshire GP surgery, you can sign up, choose an avatar (an online character) to represent you anonymously and have an online chat with a counsellor or therapist.
