                        Counseling Services
Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is pleased to offer counseling services to students, families, and school personnel to provide guidance counseling and support services. The Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia, Inc. has a Student Assistance Program (SAP) Counselor on hand to enrich student development in academic, personal, social, spiritual, and behavioral domains. The school Counselor, Mrs. Bailey, is available to meet individually with students or in small groups to address issues such as bullying, self-esteem, depression, family concerns, grief and loss, behavior, friendships, anger management, and more.

Benefits of the Student Assistance Program include:

Ability for students to meet with an unbiased person to address concerns.
Enhancement of student's academic performance.
Help for managing stress.
Providing education in nontraditional subjects such as conflict resolution.
Support to families, school staff and students on-site.
Guidance through a temporary crisis.
Enhanced personal safety.
Facilitation of social, emotional, and academic development
Personal self growth.

The SAP service is sponsored by Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, and therefore, is free to students and families. Individual sessions are initiated by a parent, teacher, or student's self-referral and small group sessions are based on identified needs of the school. Interested parents are encouraged to call Mrs. Bailey and schedule an appointment to discuss any questions, concerns, or ideas. Mrs. Bailey can be reached at 757-596-2754, ext. 223 or mbailey@olmc-school.com
