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.

Students can be referred to the School Counsellor by parents and caregivers or by teachers. Students can also complete a self-referral process if they wish to see a School Counsellor.
If you would like to refer your child to a School Counsellor, please complete the AGHS School Counsellor Parent Referral then return it to the school by email to email@example.com
