Social and emotional counselling

Ms. Sheetal Shah

The Counseling Department at Neev Academy aims to support students emotionally and socially in all aspects of the school environment. This would include attention to a healthy self-esteem, self-awareness and a sense of responsibility, to self and others.

The students can access the counselor directly if they feel the need for support to get through a situation or an emotion that is hard to handle. The teachers are also a source of referral for students they may see are struggling with choices. Parents can seek the extra help of the counselor either directly through the school contacts or share their concerns with the class teacher who would then guide them to seek help from the counselor.

Some of the areas addressed by the counselor would be:

  • Personal and Social Development is an integral component of the School Counseling curriculum. The School Counselor provides classroom guidance instructional delivery for students in grades PK to 5 on topics such as self-awareness, self-management, interpersonal skills, skills for building relationships and expectations of behavior.
  • If students require additional support outside the resources available at the school, they are referred to external resources such as psychologists, psychiatrists, doctors etc. following the consent of parents. The school counselor assists in the process of transitioning to ensure the student undergoes minimal interruption of services.
