Guidance Counsellor

My name is Teagan and I’m the Guidance Counsellor at St Mary’s Laidley (Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays) and Our Lady of Good Counsel Gatton (Wednesdays and Thursdays). 

I am a qualified Psychologist, who has worked in drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and disability services settings with a range of children and adults, which places me in a great position to support the school community. As part of the Guidance Counsellor role, I work with students and parents one-on-one or in small groups to help guide students’ academic, behavioural and social growth. Sometimes I will work with students to investigate their learning and might use a range of tests (such as cognitive, memory, academic and behavioural) to determine how they best learn. I am also a student protection contact and a member of the student support teams within each school. This means I work in collaboration with Principals, APREs, and Support Teachers (ST:IE) to help meet the needs of our diverse student populations.

Please feel free to contact me anytime at or you are welcome to call the school and make an appointment. All the best for a wonderful start to the year! Teagan.
