CHARTER and schools

A range of services and help for schools

As a result of Mandy’s work in schools and of her close working relationship with The McLellan Practice, CHARTER regularly gets enquiries from worried parents, troubled students and sometimes from teachers needing emotional support.

Its never easy asking for help and often you can feel self-conscious and scared of saying that you’re struggling or worried about someone. At CHARTER we are committed to helping you, and believe that the sooner you ask for help the better. Nothing we do with you should cause you harm, so you have everything to gain.

At CHARTER we have over 15 qualified and experienced therapists and offer services that include individual, family and couples counselling, treatment, group work and workshops all of which are designed to help you as much as possible in whatever time you can afford.

If you need help then simply complete our Enquiry Form and one of our experienced therapists will be in touch within 48 hours.

School talks

As a result of over two decades presenting in the independent schools sector for the PSHE and Well-Being Curriculum as well as providing teacher training, Mandy Saligari has reached literally 10’s of 1000s of teachers, students and their parents with her experience of addiction, emotional resilience, self-esteem, healthy relationships and her own model ‘Parenting for Prevention’.

Mandy’s intention in her public speaking is to challenge, educate and inspire. An expert on treating the 15 different manifestations of addiction, she flags how self-destructive patterns with eg drugs and alcohol can be at the end of a long line of clues that are sadly too often missed. Passionate about early intervention, Mandy shows you how to spot these clues and effectively promote self-esteem and support emotional resilience. Mandy prioritises family and healthy relationships, explaining how to foster communication that is motivated by dignity and self-respect.

Using anecdotes and real life examples, interspersed with clinical experience, Mandy’s presentations are engaging, highly informative usually giving specific tools so that her audience can leave resourced and with fresh perspectives.

Inevitably people who have seen Mandy speak contact CHARTER to find out how we can help them or a family member. The first step is usually to attend a FREE initial assessment after which we can make our recommendations. Because of the work Mandy does in schools and in the media as well as her commitments running CHARTER, her time to take on new clients is very limited. She has therefore trained a team of therapists who are able to work quickly and effectively and in line with her thinking.  Thus Mandy tends to work on a consultancy basis, seeing clients occasionally at key stages while they are working with members of her team.

Mandy provides school talks exclusively through The McLellan Practice, owned by Anthony McLellan, a close friend and colleague who co-founded CHARTER with Mandy in 2008 before leaving 2 years later to return his focus to the presentations to schools.
