Individual Therapy

You may be wondering whether counseling or psychotherapy is right for you. If you recognize any of the experiences outlined below or if you feel troubled in a way that is hard to describe, you may find therapy beneficial.

 

Couple Therapy

If you want to talk about how you can improve your current relationship, or manage a separation, you may find it useful to talk to one of our couple therapists. Often, the focus can be on discovering whether or not your relationship has a future.

Couple counseling or psychotherapy can help you take time to see your relationship from a fresh perspective. You can discuss your feelings, values and expectations, and your therapist may work with you on how to communicate more clearly. You and your partner have an opportunity to explore with your therapist your roles, desires and behavior, to think about what you want from your relationship and what you can do to change your situation for the better. It also gives you the space to explore, in confidence, complex or difficult issues, including areas of less obvious tension or conflict, and your sexual relationship.

Family Therapy

The stress and strains of everyday life, together with the tensions that each member may contribute, can put families under immense pressure. Likewise, personal problems can be made worse by a stressful family life, and it can be a challenge to the family group when an individual family member is going through a process of personal change. Change of any kind can be challenging to how a family works.

Where tensions continue or get worse, it can be beneficial to seek professional help in order to find a way through. You can see our counselor individually, as a small group or as a whole family together.

Our therapist will remain objective and is specially trained to facilitate families in exploring and overcoming their difficulties through better communication and changing detrimental patterns of behavior.

Adolescence Therapy

Adolescence is a developmental phase and a period of change that is of critical importance. How this period of upheaval is navigated can have implications for the rest of an individual’s life.

By working with an experienced adolescent therapist, the young person can describe and explore problematic areas such as conflict within the family, behavioral difficulties, stress or anxiety, feeling suicidal, sexual feelings, social skills and relating to other people. Adolescent counseling aims to engage with the problems described, and through increased awareness of thoughts and feelings, to develop communication skills and improve self-esteem.

Leader’s Responsibilities:. The counseling process doesn’t end with the counseling session. It continues through implementation of the plan of action and evaluation of results. After counseling, you must support subordinates as they implement their plans of action. Support may include teaching, coaching, or providing time and resources. You must observe and assess this process and possibly modify the plan to meet its goals. Appropriate measures after counseling include follow-up counseling, making referrals, informing the chain of command, and taking corrective measures

Assess the Plan of Action: The purpose of counseling is to develop subordinates who are better able to achieve personal, professional, and organizational goals. During the assessment, review the plan of action with the subordinate to determine if the desired results were achieved. You and the subordinate should determine the date for this assessment during the initial counseling session. The assessment of the plan of action provides useful information for future follow-up counseling sessions.
