Our Services

Child Counselling

It takes children longer to open up than adults and adolescents, so our approach to child counselling involves games, painting, drawing, sand play and working with symbols, among others.

These strategies don’t only help a child settle down, but also serve as their communication tools with which they share their story, let out their concerns piece by piece, and manage how they feel.

This type of counselling can help with the following issues:

  • Social skills
  • Behavioural problems
  • Bullying
  • Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and loss
  • Anger management
  • Separation of parents or family breakdown
  • Low self-esteem
  • Physical, sexual or emotional abuse
Adolescent Counselling

Adolescence is a difficult stage for many teenagers as they experience physical and emotional changes, while trying to fit in. Using various counselling techniques like Expressive Therapies or Symbol Work, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and working with masks is an effective way of helping them manage their feelings.

These therapies help address the following:

  • Anger Management​
  • All types of abuse (sexual, physical, emotional)​
  • Learning challenges
  • ​Challenges with peers and relationships
  • Risky behaviours
  • Low self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Anxiety
  • Family conflicts or separation of parents
  • Bullying​
  • Trauma​
  • Grief and Loss
  • Social Skills
Family Counselling & Mediation

This form of counselling helps restore harmony in the home of every family. It involves a mediation process wherein all members of the family agree on working with each other to resolve their differences to end their conflicts.

Adult Counselling

Many adults struggle with life because they are stuck in a painful event in their past. During counselling, we employ an array of modalities to guide you out of your present issues and towards a rewarding life. These include Art Therapy, EFT, Clay Field Therapy and essential oils.

Adult counselling can help you discover the solution for the following:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Addiction
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and loss
  • Unfinished business with the past
  • Low self-esteem
  • Stress management
  • Sexual, physical or emotional abuse

Parenting education and support shield parents from stress and uncertainty. Whether you schedule an individual session or join our parenting skills workshops and courses, you’ll find invaluable information for handing various issues

such as the following:

  • Behaviour management
  • Household management
  • Building parent and child relationship
  • Protecting children  
Couple and Relationship Counselling

There’s no such thing as a perfect relationship. We all have our ups and downs. Every relationship is a work in progress that requires constant nurturing. However, sometimes it goes off keel when partners either give too much into their relationship or neglect it.

Couple counseling helps couples revive the joy and love in their relationship. No matter how deep your problem may seem to be, it’s not too late to rebuild the beautiful thing you once shared.

Aside from one-on-one counselling, we also offer programs targeted at personal development for school and community settings.

These include the following programs:

  • Programs for Pre-teens 
  • Programs for Children of All Ages
  • Programs for Parents and Carers
