Tauhara College


My name is Helen Bissett and I have been a Guidance Counsellor for 21 years.  I have worked in a variety of schools, mostly in the Bay of Plenty, and now enjoy the opportunity of working with, and supporting students at Tauhara College.   Before I became a counsellor I trained as a teacher and spent seven years teaching.  

I hold a Diploma in teaching, a Batchelor of Arts and a Masters in Counselling, and I provide independent and confidential counselling to students, and also to parents. Students may be referred to me by staff or parents, or may make their own appointments. 

I am also part of a team of outside guidance, health and support agencies who work with the College to look after the emotional, health and safety needs of all of our students. This includes Anamata Cafe and REAL. 
If you wish to contact me please make an appointment through the main office or email me directly: bh@tauhara.school.nz
