Support and Counselling

Durban Girls’ College has two qualified high school counsellors who offer support to the girls on a personal, educational and vocational level. The counsellors address issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, grief as well as learning problems and refer the girls to professional medical, mental health and educational specialists if necessary.

The high school counsellors play an important role in providing support and offering careful advice in terms of subject choice and career counselling to assist the girls in making their educational and career decisions. Girls can make an appointment to see a counsellor before or after school or during the school lunch breaks.
