With Emotional Wealth In Mind…
The emotional and mental well being of children and young people is of the greatest importance to their growth, development and functioning in every aspect of their lives. It provides a vital platform and assists the child’s capacity to learn.
Unfortunately, many children and young people experience emotional problems and mental health difficulties, which hinder their learning and attainment.
Where these problems are persistent and prevalent, it makes the job of schools increasingly difficult. This is especially because of the emotions interfere with the capacity to think and focus on learning and subject matter.
At Raymer Enterprises, our objective is to support schools as they seek to provide opportunities for learning and academic achievement.
We do this by;
- Getting alongside schools to support them in identifying emotional problems and mental health difficulties,
- Providing direct interventions to children and young people,
- Achieving the needed outcomes with the necessary data to support this.
Raymer Enterprises is a limited company, founded by Robert Aymer.
Based in the West Midlands, the company currently provides Emotional Health and Wellbeing services to schools in Birmingham, Solihull and South Derbyshire.
Robert has worked extensively in a variety of roles with children and young people, in London, Nottingham and Birmingham, over the last 20 years.
Combining skills and training from a variety of roles and disciplines, such as Youth Work, Residential Social Work, Family Support and CAMHS, he uses this skillset to uniquely support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people.
Raymer Enterprises provides a high-quality, personalised programme of support for young people. Staff enable pupils to choose the appropriate direction of travel for their therapeutic approach, drawing upon a range of effective strategies. This work has lead to positive outcomes for some of our most vulnerable pupils. The staff are professional, flexible and approachable. Communication is excellent. I highly recommend this service.

Mr Richard Baker
Head Teacher, St.Wilfrid's Catholic School, Birmingham
Raymer Enterprises has delivered a therapeutic service to our school for the past year, though we had worked with Mr Aymer for several years prior to this. We have purchased a bespoke package enabling us to have an emotional well-being practitioner/counsellor on site for two days per week, accessible to students across all key stages. This service provides a vital and important role in supporting student emotional wellbeing and has consistently proven to enable students to engage in school life, both academic and social, where previously they had significantly struggled to do so. He provides a service that: • Is adaptable, approachable, professional, friendly, engages with students, parents and staff. • Responds quickly and flexibly to any issues. • Accommodates new referrals and emergencies as they arise. • Offers reliability and consistency. Mr Aymer works closely with the SENCO and the safeguarding and pastoral teams and which enables him to be aware of students’ needs and progress, report any CP disclosures and ensure that a student’s needs are fully met. When appropriate he provides written reports to the school, attends Early Help and Family Support meetings, or meets other professionals to develop a comprehensive picture of a student’s circumstances. Mr Aymer’s work may, for example, include anger management techniques, social and relational skills, building on family relationships, developing resilience and reflection skills. His confidential and non-judgemental approach is something that our students have found it easy to engage with.
