School counselling service

School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.

A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.

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 your child’s education
  • assess a student’s learning and behaviour
  • help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
  • liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.

School counselling is confidential.

School counsellors are employed by the Department of Education to assist students with a variety of educational, social and emotional issues. They can provide a number of services, including individual psychological assessments, counselling, educational assessments and assistance for students with special needs. School counsellors work closely with the school executive, student advisers, careers adviser, The learning support team and other staff to help individual students achieve their goals. They also provide a link between feeder primary schools and Bossley Park High School, enabling a smoother transition into high school for many Year 7 students.

Our School Counsellors are Mrs Danielle Kempton and Priya Kumar. The counsellors may be contacted Monday - Friday during school hours. Students needing support out of school hours should call the kids helpline 1800 551 800 or Lifeline 13 1114.
