College Counsellors

Please note we are not a crisis service so in an emergency please always refer any students to Headspace, a GP, or Child Adolescent Mental Health Service. Please send all other urgent referrals (requiring assistance ASAP) through to Headspace (8931 5999) or CatholicCare NT (8944 2000). We will try our hardest to see all other referrals as soon as we have open spaces. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.  


Amrita – Mondays and Thursdays from 8.30 am – 4.30 pm during the school term


Meet our Counsellors

Amrita Dhugga

Hi! I’m Amrita and I am a school counsellor with CatholicCareNT and I am really looking forward to starting at MacKillop College!

I have a background in health and have completed a Masters of Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Adelaide.

My previous work has predominantly been with young people and families facing a range of issues including homelessness, domestic and/or family violence and child protection.

I will be at school every Monday and Thursday. I love working therapeutically with young people in a creative and expressive way.

If you’re having a tough time or just need someone to chat to please know you can and I’m around!

If you have any questions you can contact the front office to fill in a referral form which will be passed on to me.
