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 multi-lingual service (German, English and Cantonese) and is available to the entire GSIS community including students, 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 enquires, big or small.
