Meet Our New School Counsellor Liz Ann Mathew
My name is Liz Ann Mathew, I am originally from India, and I am delighted to be joining BIS Abu Dhabi as a school counsellor. I am a Professional Social Worker specialised in Medical and Psychiatric Social Work with over 16 years of experience. I am a member of Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) and Social Work England (SWE).

I have gained 12 years of experience working in different International Schools situated in the Middle East. Working as an advocate for students' Wellbeing and Pastoral Care, I have gained valuable experience in providing counselling services to the students. I am truly passionate about helping students navigate the intricate journey of education and personal growth. Adolescence is a pivotal phase where young minds are shaping their identities, and I find immense joy in being a part of their transformation. The ability to provide a safe space for students to express themselves, overcome challenges, and develop resilience is incredibly rewarding.

I believe in a holistic approach to counselling, where the collaboration of students, parents, and teachers plays a crucial role in fostering a supportive environment. We are committed to not only addressing immediate concerns but also equipping students with lifelong skills that empower them to become confident, well-rounded individuals. I am eager to become an integral part of this school's nurturing atmosphere. My goal is to establish a secure haven for BIS Abu Dhabi students during times of necessity while also serving as a valuable resource and pillar of support for both parents and caregivers.
