Lancashire School Counselor: Brian Winchell

  • Lancashire Elementary School provides students and families with a comprehensive developmental school counseling program that is aligned with the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Standards. It is my goal to help all students develop and grow in the areas of academic, personal/social and career development and in an environment that is safe, based on respect and has high expectations for student achievement.  Services are provided to students through classroom lessons, small counseling groups, and crisis intervention with individuals.  These services along with collaboration with administration, teachers, parents, and outside agencies help to ensure that the needs of each of our students are met. 

    Classroom Guidance Lessons (Social/Emotional Learning)

    These lessons focus on the social/emotional learning of all our students. Lesson topics include:

    • Conflict Resolution
    • Problem Solving
    • Emotion Management
    • Bully Prevention
    • Character Traits/Education
    • Empathy
    • School Success

    Small Group Counseling

    Small group sessions are offered either during lunch or during the teacher PLC time and are offered to selected students in need of support beyond the classroom guidance lessons. The group focus and topics depend on the needs of the group and may include:

    • Social Thinking/Social Skills
    • School Success Skills
    • Friendship Skills

    Individual/Crisis Counseling

    Individual and crisis counseling are provided to students on an as needed basis. These services are short-term in nature and are provided for school related issues.  Referral services for community counselors and therapists are available to issues that are long-term or not school related.  Please feel free to contact me if you need referrals for these services.
