For A Happier & More Fulfilled Life
It’s natural for conflicts to occur in a healthy marriage. However, when the two spouses have never learned effective ways of resolving these conflicts, the marriage can be in danger. Marriage counselling helps couples explore the ways in which they get stuck in their conflicts, and how to break out of that negative cycle.
Loss is extremely difficult for almost everyone, especially the loss of a parent, spouse or child. Unfortunately, in an increasingly more isolated society, many people grow up without the coping mechanisms to grieve effectively. A grief counsellor can help an individual work through this difficult time.
One of the newer types of counselling that many find very helpful is Christian counselling. Years ago, a Christian in need of psychological guidance would be sent to a Priest, but seminary training did not always cover the scope of psychic damage that people can experience. Unfortunately, conventional therapists may lack a healthy respect for the spiritual and religious aspects of a person’s life, and may ignore these things in counselling, which can lead to an unsatisfying experience for the patient. A Christian counsellor has both religious and therapeutic training, and has integrated these disciplines to provide a more healing experience for the patient.
Family units have different group pathologies than individuals which require different types of counselling. A family counsellor is trained in the types of negative family dynamics that can occur and how it can affect each individual family member. This counsellor can then teach family members how to work, live and love together in a more positive way.
Marriage is not the only type of relationship that may require healing. Boyfriends and girlfriends, brothers and sisters, even business partners may need help developing coping methods that will enable them to interact effectively. Relationship counsellors can provide this assistance.
Mental Health Counselling
There are many reasons why an individual may need mental health counselling. He or she may have a chemical imbalance that is making it difficult to function, which can be aided through drugs but may also require some form of talk therapy. He or she may have deep-seated family issues which are pervading adult life. There may be unresolved trauma that is plaguing an individual. In nearly any case where a psychological issue is making daily functioning a problem, mental health counselling can help.
In group counselling, a single therapist works with multiple patients in order to help them resolve troubling issues. Group counselling can be effective for people who are not comfortable in a one-on-one setting, who have social anxiety issues, or who do not find it financially feasible to pursue individual counselling.
Substance Abuse Counselling
People who are in the grips of an alcohol or drug addiction need a special type of counselling. Substance abuse counselling uses professionals who are trained in understanding the workings and pathology of addiction and helping patients learn how to manage their addictions.
Teenagers are in a different stage of development than their parents, and hence need a different style of counselling. Teen counselling helps teens deal with issues such as understanding their sexuality, dealing with the temptations of drugs and alcohol and relating to their parents.
Not every divorce needs to end in ruin and chaos. People separate for all kinds of legitimate reasons, and a divorce counsellor can help make sure that break is clean. Some divorce counsellors can even mediate the separation so that the process does not stretch out unnecessarily and cost both parties excessive amounts of money.
Individual counselling is a direct, active and personal approach that focuses on increasing your individual self-awareness, understanding, and adjustment. Individual counselling can help you identify the most effective ways for you personally to achieve your desired goals for this stage in life, as well as provide you with the tools to cope with difficult circumstances that may arise along the way.
