Kia Ora Garin whānau

I hope you are settling in nicely to term 1.

Over the next few weeks we will introduce the members of our counselling team. This week I’ll introduce myself.

I’m Kate Sheldon. This is my 5th year at Garin as a school guidance counsellor.

I am a Garin foundation student myself, and I did my counselling placement here so it feels like I never really left!

I play guitar, and write a bit.  I’m passionate about psychology, and building relationships. I absolutely love working at Garin and it is such a privilege to get to know each one of the students here.

Most of my time is spent with my son Bodhi and our dog Baxter, we love going on adventures.

Here’s a picture of our trip to Christchurch during the holidays. We are braving the snow storm at the Antarctic centre. We were much colder than we look!

Have a great term, and remember I’m here if you need anything – just email me at katesheldon@cloud.garincollege.ac.nz or fill out the online referral form.

Ngā mihi,

Kate the Counsellor
