Student Well-Being


Our counsellors facilitate students' career development and transition from high school into college/university into employment by providing a career planning and counselling service. Counselling services provided are free, held in confidence to students through a professional setting for emotional and developmental support.
The counselling services operate under the guidelines set out in the Code of Ethics and Practice as defined by the Malaysian Board of Counsellors. The Code provides the professional standard by which the service is delivered and managed.

All sessions are confidential, which means, what is said within the context of the therapeutic relationship stays between the student and counsellor.

However, parents have rights to be informed about the progress of treatment and to decide what is best for their child. The only limits to confidentiality include:
  1. When there is a risk of imminent harm to self or another person. The counsellor has a legal and ethical duty to do whatever is necessary to protect life.
  2. When a court of law orders a counsellor to release information, the counsellor is bounded by law to adhere.
  3. If a student reveals current information about abuse or neglect of minors, counsellors are mandated by law to report.
  4. Supervisory purposes.
