The College has a Counsellor on staff who actively facilitates and promotes the mental health and wellbeing of our students. Specifically, addressing their social, emotional, behavioural and learning needs.

Our Counsellor works very closely with the Heads of Year, Head of Learning Excellence and other members of staff as required and in consultation with parents and families. She adheres to important guidelines and counselling protocols through the College Principal, and where applicable, associated outside support agencies.

Parents may seek a referral for their child through the relevant Head of Year, Student Services or the College Administration and make appointments based on availability. Students can request an appointment by sending the Counsellor a 'Direqt Message'. Appointments are considered confidential unless a student is deemed at risk to themselves or others.

Emmanuel Catholic College runs various programs at different times aimed at various aspects of student welfare. These include "Seasons for Growth" a staged program over a number of sessions that assists people in dealing with loss and grief and the ACT, BELONG, COMMIT program for mental health and wellbeing.
