The well-being and emotional state of each child is of vital importance at Kirstenhof Primary School. We pride ourselves on providing a safe and confidential environment in which our children, staff and their families can benefit from caring and professional support.

Our lead counsellor, Mrs Arton-Powell, is a qualified social worker who provides a safe space for children to share their feelings, and explore solutions to a range of problems. Mrs Arton-Powell uses play therapy techniques to ensure the children always feel comfortable and heard.

Learners dealing with severe loss, divorce, anxiety, bullying or low self-esteem are provided with the skills and support needed to face their challenges.

Parents are encouraged to attend meaningful parenting sessions on a range of topics including boundary setting and effective co-parenting.

Mrs Arton-Powell is available for consultation when needed and if required long term counselling is referred out.


You can contact Mrs Arton-Powell through the front office or via email.
