Our school Therapeutic Officer plays a vital role in supporting the emotional, social, and psychological well-being of students. Our officer provides a counseling services to students, addressing a wide range of issues that may affect their overall academic and personal development.
The counselor conducts one-on-one counseling sessions with students to address personal, emotional, or behavioral challenges they may be facing. This can include issues related to anxiety, stress, depression, grief, trauma, self-esteem, family problems, or academic struggles. She may also facilitate group counseling sessions, bringing together students who share similar concerns or experiences. Group counseling can be particularly effective in promoting social skills, peer support, and a sense of belonging.
In times of crises, such as a student experiencing a traumatic event or emotional distress, our counselor provides immediate support and intervention to help the student cope with the situation effectively. When necessary, our counselor may refer students and their families to external mental health professionals or community resources for more specialised support.
During this work our Therapeutic Officer will maintain confidentiality in her interactions with students, except in situations where safety concerns or legal obligations require them to share information.
Overall, the role of our school therapeutic counselor is to create a safe and supportive environment for students to express themselves, receive guidance, and develop essential coping skills that contribute to their personal growth and academic success.
