School counselling service

School counsellors have qualifications in both education and psychology. School counsellors can assist by counselling students, referring to external health agencies, liaising with teaching staff regarding difficulties affecting learning, and assessing student's learning and behaviour. School councellors can also assist in times of crisis.

The school counselling service is a confidential service and counsellors will check with students, (and parents or carers where relevant) before passing on information to others. Confidentiality will be maintained unless legal requirements (e.g. child protection legislation) overrride it. In the case of a student being at risk of significant harm, information is also shared in these instances.

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 their child's education
  • assess a student's learning and behaviour

Students are able to refer themselves, or be recommended for referral by a teacher or parent.

Please refer to our Emotional Health at Pittwater High on our home page.

We have registered Counsellors available 5 days a week.
