Guidance counsellors assist students in solving problems related to choosing, planning, adjusting and achieving goals in educational, career, personal, social and spiritual areas. They are available to students in junior and senior high schools.
My name is Paula Knox. I am the School Counsellor at St. Matthew’s School and am passionate about empowering students to discover their unique strengths. My hope is to reduce mental health stigma and provide resources to students, parents and teachers that will enhance student well being. My role includes supporting students, teachers and families of the community while adhering to high ethical practice and Catholic values. I believe that with the proper supports in place, all students can achieve success. I am available to assist students with any concerns related to:
- Academic achievement
- Classroom supports
- Organizational skills
- Self Esteem
- Sudden life changes
- Relationships (Family/Peer)
- Grief and loss
- Self identity
