The school employs a counsellor who is available for the girls to see on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Matters are treated as medical in confidence unless the girl gives permission for information to be shared with a defined group of staff. After an initial consultation, a series of follow-up sessions are established, funded privately by parents.
In addition, the school is in contact with other counsellors who work in town and may recommend one of them to a girl’s family.
Finally, all the girls have free access by telephone or email to the school’s Independent Listeners. They are not trained counsellors, but a listening ear with the same brief with regards to confidentiality.
