As Moseley counselors, we strive to provide a comprehensive school counseling program. A comprehensive school counseling program supports all students in reaching their full academic potential while helping to contribute to their social/emotional growth and their career development. Our program strives to promote and enhance student wellness and achievement by delivering tiered services that assist students in acquiring skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to become effective students, responsible citizens, and lifelong learners in an ever-changing global society.
If you need assistance, please contact your child’s school counselor at (804) 818-5581 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Classroom guidance lessons are extremely important in the school setting, as they allow us to be proactive in educating all of our students on a wide variety of topics.
Classroom Guidance Lessons:
Lessons will be conducted in each classroom at least once per month.
Individual counseling is available to all students in need. A request for individual counseling may be made by a parent, teacher, administrator, or student. Students are able to express concerns in a safe environment where problem solving can take place. Topics of concern may include: friendship, grief, emotion management, anxiety, family changes, and school attendance.
Techniques used during individual counseling sessions include stress reduction strategies, role playing, goal setting, creation of art work, discussion, etc.
Although we provide a multitude of services for students, intensive, long-term counseling is not available through the school counseling program. However, we are happy to provide you with a list of local providers.
Small group counseling is facilitated by one of our school counselors and consists of several students, who are facing normal developmental issues. The small group setting serves as a way for students to talk about feelings and concerns with other children who have similar needs.
Each session is approximately 30 minutes and takes place once a week over a six to eight week period. Group times are coordinated with classroom teachers so as to disrupt as little instructional time as possible.
Some examples of small groups are:
Signed parent permission is required for participation in group counseling.
