Seeking help for problems
Coping with problems when things are difficult or have gone wrong is not easy. But remember, it is not a sign of weakness if you feel you can’t manage on your own; it is more a sign of strength that you know when to ask for help.
As well as using your friends, in school or the boarding house, there are a range of others you can turn to for support:
- your tutor (or another teacher you get on well with)
- your Housemaster, Matron or other House Staff
- the Vice Master
- one of the Medical Centre nurses
- the School Chaplain
- the School Counsellor
What is counselling?
Counselling is a means of gaining help and support for the problems and difficulties faced in life.
