The college has two Guidance Counsellors on staff to support students in their personal development and to encourage their successful completion of academic and career goals.
Students may wish to discuss their future plans, examination anxiety, motivation, general difficulties with classwork or talk about all the options open to them. They may wish to get advice on applying to college (either in Ireland, UK or further afield).
