This note is to inform you of how the counselling service at ICS will function in this changing climate.
At this stage face to face counselling is still offered if a child is at school. However, this may change as we move to an online format.
Students who are linked with our service will be offered either a phone consult or Google Meet video link. This will be organised through SEQTA. During this organisation we will discuss ethical considerations (such as confidentiality) with you.
Parents are also welcome to contact Mrs Officer or Mrs Dombkins for support via SEQTA. Younger children currently engaged in play therapy will need to take a break from counselling for now but will be offered sessions as soon as school returns to normal.
The counselling service also intends to provide information through our social media platforms to encourage positive mental health for the whole family.
