Woodlands Secondary School offers counselling to students. The students may approach the counsellors personally or are referred by teachers and other school personnel. At times, parents refer their child for counselling either through the form teachers or the school leaders. The issues for counselling vary…friendship issues, family issues, difficulties in studies, anger issues, stress, career options etc. Besides counselling, the counsellor may conduct group work for students with similar issue like anger management or stress management.
Sometimes, the counsellor would also involve the parents in the counselling process. Other times, the counsellor may connect the student/family to external resources for other professional help. Examples would be family service centre (FSC), CDC, REACH-IMH etc.
