Individual, Marriage, Family & Child Counseling / Counselling

 

    We offer professional marital & pre marriage therapy services for couples, family guidance involving children, and help in working through a variety of individual issues including grief, anger management, mental health struggles, etc.. We integrate a cognitive behavioral / behavioural approach in some of what we do.

 

Explanation

    There is a time to seek help.

    Most of the time we can cope with the problems & stresses that we encounter every day, but sometimes they can pile up & overwhelm us.

    It is normal that all of us would at one time or another need help in negotiating the transitions of life. It might be a marriage or family crisis, communication problems, low self esteem, depression, child behavior / behaviour including school performance or social adjustment problems, a career choice or change, a sudden or chronic illness, or the loss of a significant person.

    Some of the signals to watch for would be : feelings of dissatisfaction, loneliness, isolation, moodiness, or distress when talking about life; recurrent anxiety, unexplainable fatigue or sleeplessness; drastic weight fluctuations or irregular eating patterns; inability to set or reach goals; sexual problems or concerns; intense or unmanageable anger or hostility, abusive communication, repeated conflict with others, recurring employment difficulties or job changes; workaholism, burnout; compulsive/addictive behaviors / behaviours (alcohol, drugs, sexual, financial, etc.); or repeated illnesses that may be related to stress.

    These are some of the indicators that one’s normal methods of coping with life are failing to work.

    Our goal is to help you sort out & work through any relevant past or present hurts (& their resulting influences on your life & relationships), & any communication, power struggle or intimacy issues that may be hindering your marriage, family, etc..

     Phone counseling / counselling, Online audio / video, email or LiveType Chat Instant Messaging etherapy sessions are available for working through issues as an alternative to the standard Office appointments we also offer (see Online & Phone Counseling).

    In our Resources section we have a number of links, books, articles, essays & seminar notes that may be of help as a supplement to counseling.

 

Context of our Value Base

     Our counseling services are available to both Christians & non-Christians alike (as per our Mission Statement), & for both we integrate our spirituality only to the degree that people request & are comfortable with.  We are respectful of others being in somewhat different places than we are in the life journeys we walk out, & are also aware that many have been hurt or offended religiously by others in their past.

    We do not try to force our Christian value base or beliefs on others, although it can at times affect what goals we feel comfortable about being able to work on, because there are a handful of moral & spiritual issues where we will not be comfortable in counseling contrary to our beliefs. These issues generally do not tend to come up in most people's counseling though.

    We come from a spiritual, biblical perspective so when requested we also function as pastoral counselors / counsellors in addition to being professional counselors, marriage & family therapists.  We are very comfortable with prayer & the inclusion of scripture where this is requested & desired, yet even then it will be integrated only to the degree that people are comfortable with.
