Counsellor Corner 19/03/2018

Surely the long-term goal of parenting is to raise healthy, well-adjusted children who have the skills they will need in adult life. Most adults begin their own parenting careers unprepared for what lies ahead, and then have to learn their parenting skills through trial and error.

This is dangerous as it can lead to parents feeling guilty and bitterly disappointed when their well-meaning... Read more

Counselors Corner

As the holidays approach, students and teachers are starting to relax a little and ‘wind down'. Certainly this is a good thing as the stress of school and classes is coming to an end. What's important to remember during the holidays, however, is that with the free time comes the added burden of ensuring that everyone is safe, as well as happy. Family celebrations and parties often mean the use of alcohol increases, sometimes to the level of abuse; and this can be concerning. We know that domestic violence and family tension can sometimes be... Read more
