School Counselling is an integral part of the Pastoral Care programme in Unity Secondary School. For the development of our students into healthy and effective individuals, their social-emotional development is as crucial as their physical and intellectual developments.
School Counselling offers support for students who are:
- dealing with the challenges at school or at home
- interested in understanding themselves better
- experiencing relationship difficulties
- feeling depressed or anxious
- experiencing loss or bereavement
- facing a significant turning point
- having queries regarding educational courses & career options.
Through counselling, our students could get better support in the following areas:
a. Have a better understanding of the origins and development of emotional difficulties which enable them to have better control of their feelings and actions;
b. Develop a more positive attitude towards their self and acknowledge their strengths and weaknesses;
c. Learn to analyse a problem and develop strategies to work towards a solution;
d. Learn to acquire social and interpersonal skills such as effective communication and anger control etc;
e. Identify their personal work values, career interests and preferences to increase motivation for studies.
Referral For School Counselling
The school has a system to identify students who need counselling support as shown in the flowchart.
Under the system, students can make self-referral for school counselling.
