The College employs a full-time Counsellor and part-time Youth Worker to support and assist with the care and development of our young men, staff and families of the College.
Jacqueline King (BSc. MCouns)
St Brendan’s College offers an on campus counselling service that is available to all students, families and staff members. Sometimes the pace and circumstances of our personal life can interfere with our ability to fully engage with the opportunities we have in front of us. Counselling provides students, parents and staff with a confidential space to discuss and process any concerns that may be causing stress, self-doubt or a lack of motivation.
Our school counsellor, Jacqueline King, has extensive experiences working in family counselling and psychotherapy, childhood trauma, and complex grief and loss. Jacqueline uses a holistic bio-psycho-social approach to counselling that is strengths-based and trauma informed.
The school also employs a full-time Student Welfare Officer, Tyler Spencer. Tyler provides social and emotional support to students on campus. This includes being available to support students with peer conflict, study stress and mentoring. Tyler also facilitates programs to help students build on social skills, emotional regulation and personal resilience.
The counselling and student welfare team work together to provide a range of care and support options to all members of the St Brendan’s Community. To find out more about the school’s counselling and student welfare services contact the school office.
