Welcome to the forum, kiffamiles, or, welcome back, rather.
Going after member who give you advice you don't necessarily like or groaning people will not endear you to our community. Let us, mods, do the unpopular policing, here. You can comfortably be busy just asking questions on what you need to find out.

Member's origin is irrelevant in this, isn't it.

Good luck with your quest and enjoy our virtual village.

PS - look for 10th class (or, pre-professional school, too), contact some in the area you need. Often, the kids who need 10th class to get back on track have troubles you mentioned you are suited to treat. There are positions of mediator, school psy, lots of background staff. For that, you will need fluency in local language (C2) and quite specific degree that is required in that specific canton. Mind you, these things are different in different cantons. EDK.ch will help you with degree recognition.

Re: Just moved to Graubunden

Discussion about the OP finding work in this field is going on here.

To avoid different people giving advice on the same subject on two different Threads, maybe we could keep this Introductions Thread free for 'Welcomes' and the like.

I'd suggest that you can afford to be sarcastic when you already have all the answers to your questions...

Ahhh but the funny thing is I have asked no questions......for some reason questions are being answered from over 12 months ago that no longer need answering and are no longer relevant to my current needs.

The sarcasm is the initial post 'no german' (well very limited german although a 1 month language school begins next week), 'no job' ( i have income coming my way regardles if i find work here) and 'no money' (my definition of having no monry/being skint is often very differant to ithers).

Ahhh oh well, we live and learn.
