The LIS School Counselling Programme is a preventative and developmental educational programme that helps students build empathy, self-confidence, self-expression and self-discipline. Students and counsellors work together to enhance student resourcefulness, productivity, competencies and interpersonal, decision-making and conflict-resolution skills. The goal is to strengthen students' own unique capabilities while guiding them as they discover and develop interests and abilities. The school counsellors seek to assist students in meeting their personal potential while meeting the high standards set by Leipzig International School.
Students can be referred to counselling services by teachers, parents or themselves. Our counsellors follow an open door policy so they can support individuals on a drop-in basis.
