Conflicts of Interest
Tina is employed by the NSW Department of Education as a School Counsellor. She is not able to see students from public schools she provides direct service to. If your child attends a public school, she advises carers/families to seek the support and advice from their school counselling service. If they are unable to provide the service you seek I can then work with your child. There are no restrictions on Tina working with students from private/independent schools.
