School counselling service

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.

SDEHS school counsellor

We have a school counsellor available to support our students.

Any student or supervisor can make an appointment with the school counsellor. School counsellors can help students deal with their problems, help students learn new skills such as getting on better with friends or controlling their anger, and work out ways to make it easier for students to learn.

Contact the school counsellor directly on 02 9383 0202 or contact the Head Teacher Welfare by phoning the school to facilitate a referral to the school counsellor.

Student can also use the School Counsellor Student Self Referral form to make an appointment.
