Guidance Counselling

Guidance Counselling

Counselling is a key part of the guidance programme, offered on both an individual and group basis, in order to assist students to make choices about their lives and to provide support at times of personal crisis. The Guidance Counselling Department provide Personal, Social, Educational and Career Guidance Counselling.

Personal and Social Guidance Counselling aims to promote self-awareness, the ability to plan, interpersonal communication skills and decision making capabilities among students.

Educational Guidance Counselling assists the decision making process regarding the choice of course, subject and level within the school, as well as developing motivation, study skills and examination techniques.

Career Guidance Counselling facilitates the decision making process in relation to further education, training and employment opportunities. Career Guidance Counselling also explores job seeking skills, work and other life roles.

Guidance Counselling is delivered through a range of classroom activities, group work assignments and one to one counselling to all students, in both junior and senior cycle.
