We are trained mediators of information looking at the whole person. Our primary role is to support the individual student in their educational, vocational and personal development.
In real terms, this means that we provide a place and time in which a young person can explore and think about something of concern, is enabled to set goals, to come to a decision and to be supported in dealing with the outcomes of that decision / be supported whilst coping and working with how that decision plays out.
The Guidance Counsellor provides a confidential service whilst taking into account the needs of the student and the wider student body. Self-referral is encouraged and welcomed.
