Parent Therapy: A Much Underestimated Mental Health Time-Bomb

There are few challenges in life, during peacetime, and outside of a traumatic event, that compares to the ongoing and sometimes relentless stress and anxiety a parent, carer, and family can experience going through the Special Education Needs and Disability processes for their child, usually in pursuance of an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

The system often referred to as ‘them’ or ‘they’ operate on a timetable that accommodates staff annual leave, school holidays, and lack of resources while you are pressured against an immovable timetable that your child’s education is slipping away, day by day.

Who is Parent Therapy for?

Parents, careers, or family members who are seeking therapy, that is felt has developed as a result of engaging in the Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) process for a dependant.

What if I was struggling before getting involved in the SEND process?

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy diverges away from psychoanalysis therapy, which spends much of the therapy time delving into the past, with the aim to identify the source of one’s distress.

This Therapy takes a more pragmatic view of the maintaining factors of today and sets out about building the resilience framework to better cope with life as its presents today and tomorrow.

Why does this Therapy have a SEND focus, anxiety and stress can be related to other factors?

In therapy a full assessment will be carried out, and will take a hollistic view of all factors, not only those that may be related to exposure of the SEND process. 

The Therapy focus of SEND draws on the common experiences that are unique to this complex process, which is where I feel is under supported for parents, carers and family. 

The Back story of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) system and the Impact to Parents

According to Government research and analysis in a May 2021 report, that found around 1.4 million pupils in English schools have an identified special education need (SEN). A number that only represents those that have been ‘recognised’ by the system, and not those that have yet to be assessed or diagnosed. 

highlights the scale of provisioning and meeting the needs 

Significant weaknesses in the SEND system noted by Ofsted include; 

  • weak co-production,
  • lack of accountability,
  • lack of coordination between services,
  • and gaps in external provisions and training.

Those who pursue an Education Health and Care Plan will find the aspirations of the timetabling specified in law, become in reality a nice to have distant realitry
