Guidance Counsellors

Ryan Catholic College Guidance Counsellors are dedicated to providing counselling, student support, classroom support and assessment services.

Counselling Referral

Written parental permission is required for Primary Students to see a counsellor. Please make contact with the student’s classroom teacher to discuss referral.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and waters, the Wulgurukaba, and that this country has been a place of learning and ceremony for tens of thousands of years. We also acknowledge the neighbouring language groups as brothers and sisters of the land. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging. May we walk gently and peacefully on this land together.
