At AISHK we have two school psychologists available to support students. Their work involves a mix of individual counselling and support for students; individual assessment work; advice to teachers and parents about managing social and emotional issues; some small group work and occasional classroom presentations, particularly on topics within the Pastoral Care Program.
Individual counselling sessions for students may include some or all of the following services:
School counsellors will explain to students when they first meet that counselling is confidential unless there is a safety issue involved. They also encourage students to talk with their parents about counselling sessions and involve them in future planning and problem solving.
For Secondary students there is also a range of resources relevant to their age group on mental health issues available through the “Help Me Stuff” link on their student OLP page.If students are worried about school or home issues, they can contact the School Counsellors directly through the following email links. Alternatively, students can arrange an appointment to visit one of the counsellors. Teachers will also introduce students to our Counsellors to encourage them to establish contact and seek support if there is a need.

Parents are encouraged to contact a counsellor to discuss any concerns related to their child’s emotional wellbeing whether these are school or family related.
