I have learnt that school counselors help to improve, maintain and enhance emotional, social, physical, mental fitness and do develop life-long learning. I do appreciate the role and challenges that the school counselors face and the work that they do in our schools (Sciarra, 2004). Scope of counselor role The first thing that I learnt is that it’s a school counselor’s role is to indentify and understand issues facing students. Students face many issues which hinder their studies. These range from psychological issues mainly encountered from home to the school environment.
