Transition to School

Transitioning to a new school environment can be a significant milestone in a child’s life, brimming with excitement and anticipation, yet also laden with challenges and uncertainties. At Bridges Therapy Centre, we understand the complexities young children may face during this pivotal period of change. Our dedicated team of therapists in London offer compassionate therapy to support children as they navigate the intricacies of school transitions.

There may be a number of issues and challenges that arise once children start school, or move from primary school to secondary school. These struggles can include:

  • Anxiety and uncertainty
  • Struggles with social adjustment
  • Academic pressure and stress
  • Emotional difficulties, e.g. fear and frustration
