At Ma’ayanot, a warm, experienced guidance staff is available to our students. The guidance team establishes relationships between guidance counselors, students, parents and, when appropriate, outside clinicians. Our professionals work to provide a nurturing, safe context for students to discuss any mental health concerns, including peer, family and academic challenges that they may encounter. Through the close relationships that they develop with students, as well as their involvement in programming and other aspects of student life, our guidance counselors create a wholesome, caring school environment that helps our students develop a healthy sense of self and a professional supportive safety net.  

Guidance counselors make sure to meet with all of their students at least once a semester, so that all students feel comfortable approaching them at any time.
