Cedars is committed to supporting student’s personal growth and wellbeing to increase their sense of self-worth and support their capacity to achieve.
Counselling services are provided by our registered Psychologist with experienced training in child and adolescent mental health. Cedars’ Counsellor provides intervention for students experiencing personal difficulties and supports students in developing critical thinking skills that act to enhance support networks both at school and home.
Counselling is available to support students around issues relating to their wellbeing including emotional, behavioural and family issues, stress, social skills, grief and physical and mental health issues. When necessary, the Counsellor liaises with parents, teaching staff and other professionals to ensure continuity of service and duty of care.
The Counselling Service at the College is available for students from Prep to Year 12 and works as part of a whole College welfare team to support student development and take steps to ensure the well-being of each student at Cedars.
