Information is collected from each client before their first counselling session begins. At the end of each school term, this information is added together so that we can look for trends and then again at the end of each school year. This information is then used to review the service we provide. Our latest review was for the period 1st September 2013 to 31st August 2014 and the findings are as follows:
