  •  Relationships And Social Issues (i.e. Peer Pressure)
  •  Self-Esteem Issues
  •  Anxiety
  •  Depression
  •  Grief And Loss
  •  Stress Management
  •  Anger Management
  •  Developmental Disorders
  •  Drug And Alcohol Issues


The provision of supports by the Student Counselling Service can take the form of: 

  •  Individual Counselling Sessions
  •  Group Support
  •  Secondary Consultation With Staff
  •  Family Work
  •  Working with teaching staff to assist in the delivery of proactive programs to enhance the  wellbeing of the school community. For instance, education programs relating to mental health   issues, social skills, drug and alcohol awareness, etc.
  •  Where appropriate, referral to appropriate community-based services.
