Larissa has been working as a school counsellor with the Department of Education for 9 years and really enjoys working in high schools and particularly enjoys empowering students to manage challenging situations and provide a safe space for them to offload any worries they may have. Larissa looks forward to working with students of NHS whilst supporting the school’s positive education approach.
