Counselling helps you to focus on and understand more clearly the issues that concern you. By respecting your own values, choices and lifestyle, the counsellor can work together with you towards making choices or changes that are right for you.
Counselling will take place on a weekly basis, each session lasts 30 or 60 minutes. A contract will be made to work with you for 4 sessions and then evaluate if further counselling is required.
The first meeting will consist of a detailed assessment and evaluation of the situation presented by the pupil. The counsellor will also explain the nature of the work and what the pupil might expect. Goals and objectives of counselling will be established at this point.
Pupils will be seen individually, but sometimes group counselling can be organised.
