School Counselling

Objective

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.
