Welcome to Your MindMatters
Your MindMatters has been created to give parents, carers and students in our community access to reliable and useful information in an easily accessible format.
Parent Matters is designed to provide parents and carers with easy access to the counsellors’ newsletter articles (as published in The Fountain), and to recommend useful parenting websites and Facebook pages.
Student Matters is designed to give students similar access to reputable, user-friendly and informative websites, as well as interactive websites, social media pages and apps that support mental health and wellbeing.
At St Mary’s College we have two part-time counsellors who each work three days a week.
Our counsellor, Gai Bath, is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. She has a background in teaching with many years’ experience, completing both a Bachelor of Education and a Masters of Counselling. Gai is a Clinical Registrant with PACFA (Psychotherapy & Counselling Federation of Australia). Gai predominantly works with students from Kinder – Year 6.
Our counsellor, Jane Sutcliffe, is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. She has completed a Bachelor of Behavioural Science with Honours, and a Masters of (Clinical) Psychology. Jane is registered through the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Jane predominantly works with students from Year 7 – 12.
