Staff Showcase: Brigita Sapina

College Counsellor

Tell us a bit about your background, where did you come from?

Previously worked as a Mental Health Support Worker and Case Manager for St Patrick’s Community Support Centre for almost 10 years. I also worked at Lumen Catholic College in 2021 as a College Counsellor.

What are your aspirations at Emmanuel and what do you hope to achieve?

I hope to provide a safe and open environment between the counsellor and the students. I want to open conversations, be available to the school community, staff and parents and use psychoeducation to promote mental health and wellbeing at Emmanuel.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.

I am an avid dancer and have performed on the stage at Crown Theatre a couple of times.
