What is School Counselling?

I often tell students that my number one job is to do everything I can to make sure their school days go well for them.  School counsellors work towards the well-being of the “total student” by promoting the emotional, intellectual, social, academic and career development of all students.  This takes place in the following ways:

  • Whole School and classroom activities, lessons and presentations promoting skills for academic and personal success.
  • Individual and small group guidance or counselling to help build skills or address issues of concern or difficulty.  
  • Connecting students to resources within the school or community which may help foster their success.
  • Working with the school team to help students with any challenges they may be facing.
