Counselling

Counselling offers you personal help on a  wide range of issues:

  • Counselling gives you a chance to talk to someone in private
  • The counsellor will do everything possible to listen to you
  • The counsellor will try very hard to understand you
  • The counsellor will not criticize you, punish or laugh at you
  • The counsellor will not tell you what to do
  • The counsellor will help you clarify your own thoughts
  • The  counsellor will help you make your own decisions

 

When you talk to your Guidance Counsellor in the counselling office, everything you say will be treated with full confidentiality. That means your story, will not be told to anyone (unless you reveal a situation of danger or where the law requires the counsellor to inform others).

You an contact the Ms. Mannion  directly or ask your Year Head, Tutor or senior prefect.
