Hannah Baddock

Virtual School Counsellor

BA Psych., Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association

Do you have a child in school who is in need of social or emotional support? Through our Virtual School Counsellor program, Hannah is able to provide your child with the tools they need to manage life's difficult moments. Hannah's experience working within the walls of Elementary and Jr/Sr High Schools, has provided a deeper understanding of the academic, social and emotional demands that schools place on students, allowing insights very useful as a virtual school counsellor. 

Working within the HPS collaborative framework, Hannah's appointments can be accessed by students and parents, through a secure online platform.  Appointments can be arranged throughout the school day or after school. If helpful, and with guardian consent, HPS will work with your child's school to arrange for a private space for a virtual session while onsite at his/her/their school. Please contact us today for further information or to book a session.

Hannah's hours are 8 am - 4 pm Monday to Friday
