A child’s schooling experience immensely influences their life. Daily experiences of success, when socializing and partaking in academics and co-scholastics activities can contribute positively to the self-esteem and well-being of children. Students face various challenges at different stages of development and require guidance and support to learn how to function effectively within their environment. An expert’s guidance can facilitate this process through counselling with the teachers, parents and students – as one interconnected system.
At Legacy School, we have a well-trained Clinical Psychologist with a team of two dedicated counselors for Primary and Secondary school to promote the mental health and well-being of members of our community. The Counsellor works in tandem with teachers, parents, students and the School management to develop and maintain an environment that enhances the quality of life amongst all individuals. Our ethical professional practices adhere to international norms in Counselling in the context of complete confidentiality, respect for individual beliefs and cultures.
