St Pius X College benefits from an independent counselling service, provided by Familyworks.
A Counsellor comes into our school one day each week from 8.45 to 2.00pm.
The main way to access this counselling service is for a concerned parent, pupil or member of staff to make a referral by speaking to, or telephoning, the relevant form teacher, head of year or key stage co-ordinator.
In addition, pupils can make a self-referral using the Familyworks’ website (https://familyworksni.com) where they will find a referral form.
There is also the option to avail of weekly “drop-in” sessions to speak to the counsellor without an appointment. These are usually available over break or lunchtimes.
