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.

 Lynn Smith

I work in the Catholic Care counselling team and feel privileged to be of assistance here at MacKillop College weekly on Tuesdays.  I have lived in Palmerston for over fifteen years and my children were educated in Palmerston schools. Before that, I lived for seven years in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. I qualified as a social worker through Charles Darwin University and have a work background in youth work, child protection, remote area social work, and domestic violence. I can be contacted through the school or directly at Lynn.Smith@catholiccarent.org.au.  Lynn
