Mrs Paige West is All Saints’ School Guidance Counsellor. In her role she attempts to be responsive to the diverse needs of the contemporary Catholic school which is an increasingly complex community of teachers and learners. This response occurs in partnership with members of the school community as an integral part of the educational endeavours of that community.
Paiges role has a focus on fostering the development, mental health and resilience of all students, including those considered at-risk and those with special needs. This focus is addressed by offering direct services such as counselling, assessment and the provision of developmental guidance activities and indirect services such as problem-solving consultation and co-ordination.
