The counsellors at the International School of Stavanger advocate for and empower all students to maximize their personal, social-emotional, and academic potential so that they can thrive in and contribute to the wider community and world.  The role of the ISS counselling department is to provide opportunities and a range of services that address all students’ academic and social-emotional needs.   Communication and collaboration with all members of the school community are vital components of our counselling program.

The counselling office is committed to providing students with both academic and socio-emotional support services. The programme is based on the belief that each student is unique, possessing intrinsic personal worth, dignity, along with certain basic rights. Individual and group socio-emotional counselling is made available to address a variety of student concerns. These may include assistance with conflict resolution and cultivating positive relationships with peers. The counsellor’s extend and coordinate support services to students, families, and staff where appropriate.
