Providing you with the confidence and tools to support mental health in your setting.



Mental Health Awareness in education has improved but the access to external support has been reduced and educators are struggling to know how to help. Our CBT programmes give you proven interventions that can easily be used in-house to help students, and staff, achieve positive mental health..

CBT4schools has a range of programmes to suit all requirements and budgets. All our programmes are written to be facilitated in-house by your school staff and with no ongoing costs.

You can purchase a whole school programme that comes with in-house or online training, OR buy our easy to facilitate individual programmes that you can download and use immediately with students.




What we do and why we do it.



Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is one of the most widely used and successful therapeutic interventions. A fairly prescriptive intervention, it is perfect to be used in schools and is recommended by DfE and NHS

In any therapeutic intervention, the relationship between therapist and client is one of the most, if not the most, crucial elements. By training and empowering school staff to use CBT we are improving the chances of any intervention being successful.

CBT is a talking therapy where the therapist works with the client to change thoughts and effect change. There is no psychoanalysis involved, or any deep delving into the psyche

Samantha Garner, founder of Garner Education Services Ltd., is a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and has worked in a school as a SENCo so she understands the challenges faced supporting mental health in schools. She is a published author with Routledge Press ( Mental Health in Education - Building good foundations) and regularly travels nationally and internationally to speak at conferences and provide training.

  • The ReBalance Programme
  • The ReBalance Programme is a collection of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy activities and discussion sheets. As a centre, you choose appropriate activities according to the need of the student and the time available. All activities in two formats – one for primary and one for secondary.

    These activities are carefully designed so that your staff can easily use them to support students in managing their mental health and overcoming difficulties. It is a guided process where you are helping the student learn more effective ways of managing with their issues. These tools help them learn independent life-long techniques and skills.
