Couple sessions and individual sessions are offered upon discussion with the couple to address individual challenges as well as the perceived challenges in marriages. Since marriage involves two individuals, it is imperative that issues are discussed together. However, sometimes before the sessions or during the sessions, some individual issues are realized. We provide an option to discuss these challenges privately to make sure that it does not interfere with the marriage goals.
GRIEF & TRAUMA COUNSELLING
If you have lost someone, don’t go about it alone. Please opt for grief therapy sessions with us to share your pain, loneliness and uncertainty. We help you identify the stages of grief you are in, allow yourself to express your grief in a healthy manner by giving you the space and time to fondly remember and move you towards facing each day bravely.
Grief in some cases can transform into trauma. Trauma is known to be any incident or event whether witnessed or experienced that has proven to be a sudden shock to an individual. These incidents can be anything ranging from receiving news of an illness, to having witnessed or experienced an accident or an attack of any form. Like grief, trauma also has its own distinct stages that an individual processes through the traumatic experience. The time period for the treatment of trauma depends on the number of traumatic events experienced and the intensity of those experiences. The sooner the assistance is sought out, the faster the healing process will take place. And yes, healing is possible!
A Family therapy session engages the entire family to meet up and discuss each one’s perspectives of the issue and pore over their own part played in contributing or maintaining the problem. It helps the families to acknowledge unhealthy patterns and restructure the system of patterns that are not fitting to the wholesome functioning of a family. Sometimes, counselors may also recommend seeing members one-on-one, as well as all together in a session.
Family counseling is an opportunity to leave hurtful experiences and counterproductive exchanges in the counseling room, learn from them and move on to create experiences and memories worth treasuring.
CHILDREN & TEEN COUNSELLING
We provide counseling for ages 8 and up. We also provide consultation and an initial basic evaluation for younger ages from 4 to 7 years with appropriate referrals to further guidance.
Merely giving up on yourself with a facade of acceptance that, “I am like this only”, or “I can never change” without knowing the cause or reasons for it, is like bandaging a wound in place of surgery. Most often, as individuals, we recognize our shortcomings, yet think that it is easier to leave it at a recognition level without delving further into the origin of these intricate and many-sided feelings. Our sessions allow for candid reflections without having to face reprobation. We recognize that the goal is not merely acknowledging the reasons for cataclysmic emotions, but to replace them with healthier ways of responding while keeping in mind the end goal, that is of materializing the positivity and truly emanating a balanced living.
Crisis intervention is known as the psychological first aid to offer immediate relief to crisis situations such as suicidal intentions, domestic violence, grief, sexual assault and other trauma related issues.
