Berlin Brandenburg International School

You are here


From one-to-one and group sessions, we are positioned to support, mediate and resolve the conflicts and challenges that exist for students in an international school setting.

The school counselling programme at BBIS is designed to help students, parents, and teachers develop positive learning experiences.  By providing proactive in-class workshops for all students and counselling support for students with specific social or emotional concerns, the School Counsellors aim to make our school a healthy learning environment for all children and young people.

The school counselors are trained at a postgraduate level in school counseling, counseling psychology, or social work, and hold membership in professional organizations such as the American School Counselor Association, the British Psychological Society and the UK Association of Solution-Focused Practice. We have dedicated counselors for the Primary School, Secondary School, Boarding School and Careers and College Counseling. All BBIS school counselors have years of experience in helping children, adolescents and their families in multi-ethnic and multilingual learning environments.

The BBIS school counseling staff works closely with homeroom teachers and principals to provide curriculum and classroom activities geared toward positive social and emotional development. Lessons on topics such as effective refusal skills, self-esteem, conflict resolution, sexual safety awareness, and peer pressure are commonly taught in conjunction with or coordinated by the school counselors. Counselors also work individually with students or in small group settings to support students in their social and emotional growth and development.

On this page you can learn more about the BBIS School Counsellors and their roles in the school.  Please feel free to contact us anytime, we enjoy getting to know prospective and current families.
