Counselling Centre

Curiosity   |   Compassion   |   Courage

The counselling team at Brock Middle School can support students and families through a variety of options, interventions and planning tools.  We provide many key services to support mental health and academic success. Our goal is to promote, provide, and support student well-being as advocates of mental health, relationships, and personal development.

Want to Speak to a Counselor?

If a student wishes to speak to a counselor, an appointment will need to be made via the Student Services / Counselling Secretary during daily school breaks. Appointments will typically be made for the next school day; however, depending on urgency, the counselling team may be able to accommodate same day visits. Please note that crisis situations may result in appointments needing to be rescheduled.

Students are assigned to a counsellor based on the first initial of the student's last name. 

  • Mr. Chow (students A-L)
  • Ms. Reddeman (students M-Z)
  • Mr. Cimmarrusti (grade 7 students)

How Can a Counselor Help?

The role of a school counsellor includes school-based consultation, co-ordination, and education in a safe and judgement-free manner. The school counsellor does not discipline, but rather helps in the development of effective behavioural change. Brock's counselling team can provide a continuum of preventative, developmental, remedial, and intervention services and programs and facilitates referrals to community resources.

All conversations between students and counsellors are confidential; that means that they do not share detailed information without permission from the student. Counsellors take their commitment to confidentiality very seriously. There are some circumstances, however, that they are legally obliged to break confidentiality for student safety. Counsellors will always inform students when they have to break confidentiality and discuss options with them.
