Emotional Support and Personal Counseling
Saint Maur as a school takes pride in attending to and providing excellent care for the social and emotional well-being of students.
The school acknowledges that life can sometimes present a different set of challenges and difficulties; and anyone can get ‘stressed out’ and experience distress at times. At times like these, perhaps a bit of help and support from others can make a huge difference.
Under the school leadership, all staff members are involved in the well-being of students to a various degree and on different levels. Our on-staff bilingual (in English and Japanese) counselor is available and is committed to assisting and supporting students in resolving and overcoming any concerns, issues, or challenges they may have that are affecting their personal lives. In so doing, the counselor works closely with students and offers a safe and supportive environment where they can freely express themselves without having to worry about the consequences and where their privacy will be treated with utmost respect and care.
Referrals can be made by the teacher, the parent or the student him or herself. Depending on the needs and situation, an individual, group, parent, or family session can be arranged. Students are also encouraged and welcome to stop by and share their happy moments and delightful experiences with the counselor at his office. Parents are also encouraged to contact the counselor if they have any concerns in relation to their child. If deemed appropriate, a referral to an outside counseling agency can be made.
