School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.
A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.
The school counselling service can:
- support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down
- help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education
- assess a student’s learning and behaviour
- help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
- liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.
School counselling is confidential.

Our highly trained and experienced School Counsellors are always available as support for students and parents in educational, emotional, personal and family areas.
Our school counsellors help our students to know their strengths and weaknesses and develop a better understanding and knowledge of their relationships, interests, achievements and opportunities.
The school counsellor will explain how they work, listen carefully to what you have to say, help you clarify your options and encourage you to make your own decisions.
