How  to make an appointment with a counsellor
Before school, during breaks, lunch, and after school there is almost always one counsellor available….you can see the counsellor then, or use that time to make an appointment for later.

If it is urgent, you can ask your teacher for permission to leave class and come to the counselling area.  If their doors are shut, that means they are busy, and you will need to wait.  It is generally best to not wait for a long time. You can always slip a note under their doors and let them know you wish to see a counsellor.
