School counselling at BISB

BISB attaches great importance to ensuring pupils’ wellbeing, developing character and resilience, and supporting pupils with problems. This academic year, a counselling service has been introduced which will play a valuable role in meeting these goals by supporting children with emotional challenges and in the early intervention and support for mental health issues.

British International School Bratislava_School Counselor_Silvia Majercakova        The aims of counselling are to assist students to achieve a greater understanding of themselves and their relationship to their world, to create a greater awareness and utilisation of their personal resources, to build their resilience, and to support their ability to address problems and pursue meaningful goals. Some of the reasons children may benefit from counselling would be: 

  •   coping with change/adjustment to school or new culture 
  • academic pressure and exam stress
  • managing emotions 
  • self-esteem and self-acceptance 
  • friendship and relationship issues
  • developing social skills
  • coping with divorce, bereavement and other family issues

I am delighted to have been appointed to provide the counselling service at BISB. My name is Mgr. Silvia Majercakova Albertova, M.A., and I have extensive experience as a psychologist and counsellor in a variety of school settings. I can offer many services including:

  • consultations with students, parents and teachers
  • initial assessment of student need
  • individual and group counselling
  • activities to promote wellbeing 
  • crisis intervention 
  • referrals to outside therapists/agencies if applicable. 

When working with students, I strongly believe in a positive approach with an emphasis on individual strengths and resources. I am available for appointments at:
