About the Guidance Room
The development of a Guidance Room is an ongoing effort to continue to address the needs of students. The Room will be a source of information focusing on, but not limited to, three areas: Career Planning, Post Secondary Institution Information and Financial Planning. Students are encouraged to access the Guidance Room and avail fully of the services provided.
Mrs. Anne-Marie Dalley is available to assist students in any way to ensure they meet with success. Feel free to contact Mrs. Dalley by email (email@example.com) or at (709) 884-2632.
Hello, I'm Janice!
This is my first year as a Guidance Counsellor with CDLI. I am very fortunate to work in a position that connects me with students, schools and families across this great province from Nain all the way down to Trepassey! Every day as a counsellor is an adventure and I learn something new. Each day, I look forward to hearing from students and giving them the tools to succeed in ways that best suits them. If I can be of help to you, I encourage you to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
What do I do?
- Assist people to become their best selves
- Educate and advocate with the purpose of improving mental health literacy and eliminating stigma
- Work with students, parents and school staff to identify learning needs as well as personal needs, and design interventions to enhance individual student success
- Coordinate with community agencies to align individuals with resources
Who Am I?
- In my spare time, I’m a photographer, treasure hunter and chef
- I love to travel, go on adventures and explore new places
- I cherish my family, friends, and pets
- I am an active volunteer in my community
- I am a lifelong learner, proud nerd, and pun master
I hold a Masters of Education in Counselling Psychology from Memorial University. I am also a Professional Member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, and possess a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) designation. The benefit of being aligned with this association is that it promotes professional accountability and visibility. In addition to this, the CCPA has developed the Continuing Education Credit (CEC) system, to recognize professional development activities and promote continuous education for counsellors.
Counselling is the skilled and principled use of relationships to facilitate self-knowledge, emotional acceptance, growth and the optimal development of personal resources. The overall aim of my work is to provide an opportunity for individuals to work towards living more satisfyingly and resourcefully. Counselling relationships will vary according to need but may be concerned with developmental issues, addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crisis, developing personal insights and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict or improving relationships with others.

Teachers are essential members of a students' educational team. During their high school years, Canadian youth spend more time in school than anywhere else outside of their homes; therefore, it is of vital importance that teachers become comfortable with, and gain a deeper understanding of mental health literacy and mental disorders. As advocates, teachers support their students in many ways as they navigate through secondary school and beyond. This page contains information and links to resources which will help teachers best help their students.
