Dundonald Primary School 'Together we...Inspire, Believe, Achieve'

Counselling Service



Our School has provided a school counselling service for a number of years, this service is available to all the pupils, from P1-P7.  Our school counsellor is Margaret Harding and she is available every Thursday.  


Margaret is happy to see any pupil who wants to discuss issues that concern or worry them.  Most pupils want to talk about normal things that happen in everyday life like a fall out with friends or a change in their life or family or it may be for more specific things e.g. a bereavement.  We believe that parents are the most important adults in a child’s life, so the school counsellor will always encourage them to talk to you about their worries as well. 


While school counselling is a confidential service we recognise the need for parents to be involved in helping their child make the choice about seeing the school counsellor.


Drop in sessions are available for pupils as well.  


If you are interested in your child attending School Counselling please speak to Mrs Burns or your child's class teacher who will pass the details to Mrs Burns. You can email Mrs Burns directly on
