Wellbeing Support Service

The Wellbeing Support Service includes Psychologists, Social Workers and Counsellors providing a range of services to students who are experiencing social, emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties. The services we provide include individual counselling for students, counselling support for families, liaison with staff, and small group work (such as resilience skills, healthy relationships and body image programmes). Psychological and Educational Assessments are also completed when appropriate.

Referral to counselling services or wellbeing support is typically made through the student’s Head of House in consultation with the student and parents/carers. Students can also self-refer by making an appointment directly with a member of the Wellbeing Support Service Team.

At Knight Street students can see Fran, Peter, Megan or Heather. Peter and Lori also provide services to the students in the Year 9 Programme.
