Counselling Services

Counselling services are available to all students at CMA. The counselling approach used at CMA is strengths-based and solution-oriented. The focus is on building assets and competencies rather than just treating problems. Our goal is to help students to enhance their well-being, cultivate what is best within themselves and create conditions that enable our community to flourish and thrive.

Melahnie Moodie is the school counsellor. Counselling services are provided to individuals, small groups and classroom workshops. Students and parents are welcome to schedule appointments Tuesday – Friday via email or in person.
