Counseling Department

As you know, the COVID-19 has resulted in the closure of schools and several public and private institutions throughout the country and world. This may lead to lots of questions from children and a wide variety of feelings from children and adults alike. This is normal as new information and changes evolve from day to day. Some of the ways we can help them cope with the social-emotional and personal impact is through education, age-appropriate discussions, encouragement and reassurance.

AUS Counselors continue to provide student services through guidance lessons, advisory, college/career counseling, and general counseling support if you or your child need to talk. Also, we can refer students to counseling teletherapy services within Kuwait at your request, which is provided by clinical counselors.

Please contact your respective school counselor/psychologist if you need any assistance. We are available through email, phone and live virtual discussion if necessary. Furthermore, below we have compiled videos, articles, and infographics from reputable sources for your viewing. We look forward to hearing from you and want to help in any way we can. Our office hours are Sunday - Thursday from 11:00 a.m.- 1:00p.m.
