We employ a counsellor who can meet with the girls on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. All matters are classed as medical and treated in the strictest 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 arranged and funded privately by parents.
We are also in contact with other local counsellors and on occasions, may recommend one of them to a girl’s family. Every girl has free telephone or email access to the school’s Independent Listeners who are not trained counsellors, but offer a listening ear in absolute confidentiality.
