Carmel College Counselling Service is available for all students. Our two counsellors, Shannon Mawdsley and Carolyn Purdie work with a range of issues including friendships, stress, goal setting, identity development, anxiety and depression. We encourage students to seek assistance when they are first concerned about something. The idea that counselling is only for major issues, the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff, is one we would like to dispel and we work hard to be proactive, being the fence at the top of the cliff. To this end we have created a site with information for students and parents to support the transition from childhood to adulthood. Click HERE. This can also be accessed on the main Carmel website under Quick Links, titled Positive Parenting.
Carolyn is available on Wednesday and Friday.
