Equine Therapy

In partnership with The Way of the Horse – Visit Website

Our vision is to facilitate self-empowerment with unique equine therapy methods to help individuals to achieve a state of complete peace and harmony by educating themselves to read their mind and body language and translate it into positive and sustaining action.

Our mission is to provide tailored and bespoke programmes of support to individuals from all backgrounds, be it children, young people, families, or businesses, to enable self-healing and inner growth.

We want to create a safe haven for vulnerable individuals in the community by nurturing them to survive, strive and succeed. Our services are inclusive, holding no judgment, and consistently provide excellent quality of service to all our clients. We will communicate openly about our work and ensure staff and volunteers are given direction to enable them to support the community in the best possible way.

Creative Art Therapy

In partnership with Charnwood Arts Therapy – Visit Website

Art Therapy can be very supportive to children, young people and adults who may be going through a difficult time. People can benefit from Art Therapy if they are struggling with difficult experiences or changes in their life.

Art Therapy provides a consistent, safe, confidential space where the young person can ‘do art and make things’ and can talk with the therapist if they want to. Art Therapy provides strategies to develop resilience, self-regulation, support development of positive, appropriate, relationships and enable increased engagement in education.

Art Therapy is a unique process which aims to ease distress and emotional upset.
Images can be used to support personal development, expression and
communication, particularly with people who find communication difficult.

What may be hard to put into words can be expressed through the artwork. No
skill in art is needed to benefit from Art Therapy, but some interest in using art
materials is necessary. Art therapy can provide support to people of all ages and

Music therapy

Music Therapy

In partnership with Charnwood Arts Therapy – Visit Website

Just as we all have the ability to respond emotionally to music we all have the ability to be healed by music therapy. The use of music in therapy can help to make connections with and communicate our conscious thoughts and experiences and those thoughts and experience which may be on the edge of our consciousness and difficult to express.

Music therapy sessions involve making music and creating your own music improvisation. The music therapist will join with you to explore the world of sound using familiar pieces of music and a range of instruments.

This is a positive, enjoyable activity where musical ability is not needed. Making music alongside the Music Therapist builds confidence and develops a trusting relationship.

For many people including those with disabilities, mental health difficulties, those at elevated risk or individuals feeling isolated and vulnerable music therapy is a safe and comfortable process where emotions can be expressed and issues explored.

Local Community and Businesses

The Lady Byron School will make full use of our local amenities with visits to the village library who have a regular careers advisor. Sports sessions at the Leisure centre with sessions with a sports coach and the local skate park.

Our school and young people will be involved in the local community with support from The Kibworth Autism Friendly Community, which we will encourage and promote across Fleckney. Working with the local parish we hope to spread Autism awareness with tailored training within the community.

Fleckney hosts many local events which The Lady Byron School will take part in, alongside supporting national events such as MacMillan Coffee mornings, Children in Need and Comic Relief. With so many local opportunities we endeavour to be able to secure links for work experience, or voluntary work.

Educational Psychologist

We work with a qualified educational psychologist, in partnership with families and other professionals, to help children and young people achieve their full potential. Educational psychologists support schools and the local authority to improve all children’s experiences of learning.

The educational psychologist will use their training in psychology and knowledge of child development to assess difficulties children may be having with their learning. They provide advice and training on how we are best to help children to learn and develop. They recommend methods and help develop strategies in partnership with the school and families, to support a child to learn more effectively.

The educational psychologists will also keep up-to-date with best practice, policy and research relating to how children learn. Working in partnership with the school will help ensure the best outcome is achieved for the child or young person.
