Welcome to the School Counselor webpage. My name is Tiffany Bradberry and I am the school counselor here at Hyde Park Elementary.  The purpose of this page is to inform you about the roles and responsibilities of a school counselor.

 
 
What Services Does A School Counselor Provide?
 
Individual Counseling
A process where students discuss issues in a safe, positive, and confidential setting (for a limited time, ongoing therapy is not available at school). Topics are based on the needs of the students and may include:feelings, changing families, peer pressure, friends, stress, academics, social skills, bullying, getting along with others, problem-solving, and decision-making.
 
Small Group Counseling
A process where students, sharing similar issues and concerns, work together in a small group environment consisting of about 5-8 peers. The group sessions usually last about 30 minutes and are held for approximately 5-7 weeks. Topics are based on the needs of the students and may include social skills, grief and loss, friendship building, and anger management.
