In counselling, the aim is to explore personal issues and problems through discussion in order to increase understanding or develop greater self-awareness. The aim of counselling is to lead the client toward self-directed actions to achieve their goals.We offer professional guidance to those who want to change their current circumstance, helping them to identify what is going on and what they want to be different. We help the client to create a plan for thinking and behaving different; tell and understand their story, have the courage to change but not do the changing for them. We offer the following:
We work with the client one on one in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs and/ or behaviours. Helping them identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
The focus will be to identify the presence of dissatisfaction and distress in the relationship, create and implement a plan with objectives designed to improve or alleviate the presenting symptoms and restore the relationship to a better and healthier level of functioning. The goal will be to increase the client’s understanding of themselves, their spouse, and the patterns of interactions that have become detrimental to the marriage.
We identify specific areas of conflict and/or aspects of their relationship they would like to change, and then develop a plan of action to improve each individual’s satisfaction and contentment .Couples are able to explore how their individual backgrounds, beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors may be impacting their relationship in both positive and negative ways.
Our aim is to help you and your partner prepare for marriage. You will be helped to ensure that you and your partner have a strong, healthy relationship — giving you a better chance for a stable and satisfying marriage. The method used will assist you to identify weaknesses that could become problems during marriage, improve your ability to communicate, set realistic expectations for marriage and develop conflict-resolution skills. Expect to spend at least 6 sessions. We also offer workshops for small groups or individual couples.
