Each student is unique and deserving of our attention; we must hear beyond the student's words and actions to what is really being communicated; that we must help the student towards greater self-understanding and self-direction.
We must work closely with the parents in reaching the goal of helping the student become a mature, independent, contributing and responsible individual.
The role of the counselor is to contribute towards helping students to evaluate, assess and understand his or her potential.
