Booking an appointment
 
Students can book an appointment to see his/her counsellor by completing an apointment request form and placing it in their counsellor's mailbox. Request forms are available in the counselling centre.
 
Parents are encouraged to make contact with the school regarding their child’s progress. Conferences may be arranged through parent, teacher or counsellor.
 
Course Planning
 
Students may seek assistance from the counsellors when selecting courses each year and determining occupational and post-secondary institution entrance requirements. Counsellors post up to date information for students on twitter @lamcounselling.
 
Personal Concerns
 
 Counsellors are available to discuss questions or concerns as they arise. For example:
  • Dealing with stress and depression
  • Substance abuse issues
  • How to deal with bullying behaviour
  • Abuse issues
  • Relationship issues
 
Mediation
 
Counsellors coordinate a mediation service to help students deal with disagreements, arguments, or misunderstandings. Mediation is a safe place for individuals in conflict to talk and to listen to one another and to create agreements to end the conflict. We are committed to the process of people working out their conflicts in a constructive way.
 
Counsellors also teach the Peer Mediation 11/12 course. This course provides students with skills in communication and mediation, enabling peer mediators to provide support for their peers at L.A Matheson.
