Jude Murray – HOD & Full-Time School Counsellor

Hi my name is Jude Murray, one of two guidance counsellors here at school. I work full-time at Horomaka and am here everyday.  I am excited to begin my 2nd year as a School Counsellor at Horomaka!

I provide a confidential service to ākonga and their whānau. Ākonga are supported to become empowered in all areas of their lives. Where necessary, I liaise and network to gain access to specialist mental health providers.  We want to normalize counselling – you play sport/gym/walk/eat well for your physical health, you connect with people for your social health, you might connect with nature, be in the present moment, attend church, etc for your spiritual health. It is also important to look after your mental health.

Fun Fact:
I used to be an Intermediate teacher before I became a School Counsellor!
