School Counseling

Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.

We hope this page is a helpful introduction to the Counseling Program at CIS and the support that we offer students. As we work with you and your child, please be assured that we are bound by the Code of Ethics of the International School Counselors' Association. Parent and child's confidentiality is protected to the extent allowed by Danish law. Helping children meet their fullest potential is a combined effort of school and home.

If we can be of service, please contact one of us to make an appointment. We look forward to working with you. Please see the menu to left for the appropriate school level.

Please note that counseling in the school setting is brief in nature. The school counselor can assist you in coordinating a referral to a community agency if therapy is indicated or desired.

The counselors provide support for students, parents and teachers. The focus of the counseling program is the development of the whole child, social, emotional, physical and intellectual. The counselors work closely with parents and staff to support and enhance the positive culture of this international school setting.

Services include observation, consultation, program planning, assessment and referral. Students will receive support one-on-one, in small groups, or whole grade level settings.
Social and emotional issues addressed include but are not limited to, behavior management, peer relations, conflict resolution, self confidence, stress management, substance abuse, depression, suicide, and the grieving process.
Counselors at each division monitor student progress and offer support to teachers in identifying learning needs, making referrals and program planning.
