New Counsellor

New Counsellor

Victoria has a new Student Counsellor. She is Miss Ruth Swatland, a Canadian, who was trained at the Universities of Manitoba and McGill.

Miss Swatland has had considerable experience in the various branches of counselling—in a family counselling agency, a residential treatment centre, for emotionally disturbed children, as consultant for a residential centre for delinquent girls, group psychotherapy with disturbed adolescent girls, and on the Faculty of the School of Social Work with the University of Manitoba.

She came to New Zealand 18 months ago. and worked first as the senior social worker at Greenlane Hospital in Auckland. She has been at Victoria for a term now. working with the Student Health and Counselling Service in Waiteata Road.

"I am glad that students come freely for help." she told Salient"and I hope they will come before their problems get too acute." She said that as a result of the tremendous pressures under which students live, there is a trend in universities everywhere for increased counselling services
