At School

We provide Independent Educational Psychology and Counselling Services to schools in East Sussex, West Sussex and surrounding areas.

We offer a range of services including consultation, assessment, supervision, advice and training on specific difficulties (dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia etc); emotional awareness in children; SENCo or NQT training/advice; crisis response, counselling, therapy and more.

Our Educational Psychology services are bespoke to fit your needs. We are currently unable to see and visit children within some of East Sussex Schools while we work with East Sussex Council.

Online advice, consultations and training available for parents and teachers, across the UK. Many are currently contacting us for online dyslexia advice

Assessment

Classroom observation
Assessment

Assessment is conducted in a relaxed and friendly way that is comfortable for you. An assessment typically involves:

  • Completing a background questionnaire
  • Meeting with a Chartered Educational Psychologist
  • Participating with a number of cognitive (problem solving) tests, together with further literacy related (reading and spelling) tests, lasting up to 2 hours.

A report is provided in under 10 days.

Children and students with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other needs are shown a strength and weakness profile, accompanied by recommendations.

If in the Sixth Form, a report might enable students to access a Needs Assessment for Disability Student Allowance (DSA), resulting in resources to assist with their dyslexic or particular learning needs.

Advice and Support

Teacher in classroom
Blackboard

We provide advice and consultation with SENCos, Inclusion Managers, Headteachers, Class teachers, parents and others.

We deliver awareness raising courses and briefings lead by an Educational Psychologist.

Our courses explore what a specific learning difficulty (such as dyslexia) is and how it can affect individuals, outlining their skills and abilities and presenting strategies for both teaching staff and the individual.

Schools usually contact us directly regarding their specific training needs. Bereavement and Counsellor support available

Person centred counselling services are now available; in person, online, or via phone to both organisations and individuals (adults, staff and children). Training in mental health is also available. Counselling for mental health, anxiety and bereavement.

If in the Sixth Form or if older than 16, you can complete the adult dyslexia checklist on our sister website: dyslexia centre. Or ask about our DSA assessments.

Counselling Services

Our counselling approach is empowering, using person centred principles.

We may also use a range of other approaches which we feel will help.

Our first step is to organise a brief chat to talk through key details and find out if Ria’s services are suitable for you. Ria is primarily a person-centred counsellor based in Bexhill, operating in Hastings, Eastbourne and surrounding areas
