Pastoral Care & Wellbeing
At Naima JPS, the wellbeing of our children is our highest priority. We take every step to ensure that all of our children are given access to the pastoral care they need.
As part of our pastoral care offer, we are very fortunate to have an in-house Psychotherapist, Rachel Davis, working within the school. You can read more about Rachel and the work she does in the school below.
Rachel Davis, Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist
I am first and foremost a mum of teens, tweens and primary school aged children. I am also a child psychotherapist specialising in social and emotional development in early years and primary school aged children.
I have a vast and diverse training experience, having trained in Leeds, the USA, Israel and London, previously working at The Higashi School in Boston USA, The American International School in Jerusalem & Oaklodge Secondary School. I currently work in various London settings supporting social and emotional development through circle time, group learning and individual support. I have also found that parental involvement in the social and emotional development of the child has been invaluable and has become an integral part of my work.
I have a strong strategic background in education services and have led provisions to ensure every child is able to embrace rather than simply survive their education. I am passionate about integrating a variety of mediums within my work to provide a more tailored approach to one’s individual needs. I offer a relaxed, compassionate and confidential space to support your child explore and resolve the challenges they experience.
