The Guidance & Counselling role at Unity College is designed to support the mental health and wellbeing of all students at the school. We provide personal counselling for students for any issue that they feel that is impacting upon their school life. Guidance Counsellors aim to listen to students and try to support them in finding ways to respond to their current life circumstances and move forward positively. We all experience difficulties from time to time, and the Counsellor can simply be thought of as an extra support person, outside of family and friends.
Counselling is on a consensual basis and the service that is offered is confidential. When you visit the Guidance Counsellor whatever is discussed will be kept confidential unless there are concerns that you or somebody else might get hurt. If this happens the Counsellor will talk about what to do and who needs to be told.
Students and / or parents can make an appointment with a Guidance Counsellor by doing one of the following:
Students in P-6 require parent permission to attend counselling sessions. Students in 7-12 are able to make an appointment independently.
If you need to contact the Guidance Counsellors, Anthony Ross or Lena Redman, their offices are located in the administration building and contact can be made through Student Reception. They can also be contacted by phone on 5490 5777.
