Guidance Counselling

At Marist College, the care and development of the whole person is central to our philosophy.  Therefore, the love and care of each other is the responsibility of every student and adult, part of our community.

The philosophy of the Student Advocacy Counsellor is to listen to and support students so that they are able to learn and develop fully.  All students may access this service through a self-referral process via email or directly at the Student Advocacy Counsellor’s room.  Looking out for the wellbeing of all students, deans and whanau may also make student referrals to the Student Advocate Counsellor.  When necessary, families may be supported to access specialised expertise of external agencies.  

Guidance Counselling is private and confidential.  The exception to this is in instances of serious harm to self and/or others where a Code of Ethics requires that further support is accessed. Students are informed of this expectation.
