The counsellor provides support and guidance for students with personal, family, social, academic and behavioural concerns. She helps students to tackle problems that impede learning and helps them make educational and personal decisions.
Each student may meet with the counsellor individually, in small groups, or with an entire class.
The counsellor has the duty of confidentiality except where the student is in danger or any other students mentioned are in danger.
The psychologist is at the disposal of the students for scheduled meetings during her presence in school to provide support regarding personal concerns. A report will be drawn up with the family after the session.
The psychologist and the counsellor may organise discussions about personal development if needed.
Ask about your privacy
There are some instances where a school counsellor has to let other people know about your situation. It’s a good idea to talk to your school counsellor about your rights around privacy before you start the session. For more information, check out confidentiality.
For further information, students and parents are invited to contact Mrs Benedicte Kami, School Counsellor, at firstname.lastname@example.org
