The very first day we enter school, through our secondary to tertiary institutions we would have to answer one question or another by speaking in class or through making presentations. How many students really are intelligent and have knowledge in their subjects but do not have the confidence to articulate them? School counsellors are particularly trained to undertake guidance and counselling in schools due to their specific knowledge, awareness and skills that other school professionals may not have to help students recognize their inherent social and emotional competencies. School counsellors are therefore to devote time and attention towards nurturing students’ self and social emotional needs to help students gain the needed confidence to articulate themselves in school and in public.
