Guidance and Counselling in Coláiste Pobail Setanta

Guidance and Counselling refers to a range of learning experiences provided in a developmental sequence, designed to assist students to make choices about their lives and to make transitions consequent on these choices.

These choices may be categorised into three separate but interlinked areas

Personal and Social,                   Educational,                          Career

Counselling empowers the students to make decisions, solve problems, change behaviours and resolve issues in their lives.

Sometimes in Coláiste Pobail Setanta this may be personal counselling, educational counselling, career counselling or it may involve combinations of each.

Counselling is a key part of the School Guidance Programme.

It is offered on an individual or group basis as part of a developmental learning process and at moments of personal crisis.

Guidance and Counselling is viewed in Coláiste Pobail Setanta as a process – not an event – which begins on the student’s entry in first year and continues right through the five or six years spent in the school.

There are currently two Guidance Counsellors in Coláiste Pobail Setanta; Ms.Tara O'Brien and Ms A. Kirwan.
