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 we have two part-time counsellors who each work three days a week. Gai Bath and Andrea Maver both have a background in teaching with many years’ experience and come to their counselling careers with a Bachelor of Education and a Master of Counselling. Both are Clinical Registrants with PACFA (Psychotherapy & Counselling Federation of Australia). Gai works predominantly with students from K – Year 6 and Andrea works predominantly with students from Years 7 – 12.
