Student counselling

Carmel College is committed to educating students within a protective and nurturing environment. Confidential counselling is offered to all students through the fully qualified and experienced in-house counsellors.

• peer pressure and conflict
• family breakdown
• grief and loss
• self-esteem and body image
• coping strategies
• stress and relaxation
• behaviour management
• child safety and protection
• community and agency links and referrals
• bullying and conflict resolution
• cyber-safety and cyber-bullying
• mental health.
