Student Counseling

Student Counseling promotes student success through

  • Individual and group counseling.
  • Classes, workshops, and presentations.
  • Consultation to faculty, staff, students and parents.

There are many different reasons why a student may want help from the counselling service. Counselling can offer  the students a space to talk and think about problems and difficulties, and many people find it helpful to be able to do this with someone who is not a friend or family member. Counsellors are not the same as doctors and psychiatrists, and cannot prescribe medication. Counselling is not about giving advice, but can help you understand difficulties. Your counsellor can work with you to help you make decisions and changes that may work better for you. DPS has appointed a counsellor who ensures that the counseling sessions with students, parents and teachers bring fruitful change in the student’s behaviour.
