Counselling can be described as a process of guidance and assistance whereby a trained professional, a counsellor, helps and supports personal, social or psychological problems and difficulties. Counselling may be a one-time occurrence or an on-going process, depending on what is suited to the person in need. Counselling sessions may take place one-to-one, or in small groups.
Counsellors support, encourage and guide towards positive change and are not supposed to give advice or judge. The GSIS school counselling team provides a bi-lingual service (German and English) for all students and offers support and guidance to parents and staff.
We support students to become resilient, independent and caring individuals well-equipped to handle challenges they may face in and outside of school. We work collaboratively to serve the students and community of GSIS and welcome any inquiries, big or small.
