We know that counselors are the heart of a school. When the heart is strong- your school stays healthy. Our Consultation Circles for School Counselors is designed to provide counselors with the care and support they need to navigate the challenges of their work and thrive. The team of mental health practitioners at Linden Global Learning provide a confidential platform and safe space for counselors to discuss challenging cases, brainstorm creative solutions to complex situations, and most importantly, share their successes.

Register here by February 5th! 


Led by a Linden mental health specialist, sessions will provide a clinical perspective and access to resources and tools from the contributions of over 100 international school counselors. Designed to highlight the rich knowledge and diverse perspectives that counselors around the world bring, each session will feature the following components:

  • Gratitude Circle: Each counselor will have the opportunity to share their weekly successes.
  • Case Presentations: 2-3 counselors will present a challenge or case from their respective schools.

  • Special Topics: 1-2 sessions will be dedicated to a deep dive into culturally sensitive trauma-informed practices, aimed at equipping teachers with the knowledge and skills to effectively support the school community.

  • Insight & Idea Sharing: Counselors are encouraged to contribute by sharing an insight,  idea or a resource.

  • Closing: The facilitators will summarize and conclude the session and provide resources based on the topics discussed and shared insights. Facilitators may also lead a brief mindfulness/grounding exercise to promote self-awareness and resilience.

  • Final session: Participants will reflect on their learnings and personal growth.
