The Emotional Counselling Department

Dr Carol Ashong joined SOS-HGIC as the Head of the Emotional Counselling Department (ECD) and the PSE lead in August 2016. Dr Ashong brings a focus to students’ self-identity through programs designed to help students develop, strengthen and be confident in their individual identity as they balance it with their collective identity in SOS-HGIC.
