Counselling

Pressure can be a natural part of our lives. From time to time, that pressure may develop into stress that you may feel to be unbearable due to a gradual build-up of tensions or perhaps a sudden unexpected incident. To reach such a situation and stage is not an indication of weakness but rather a natural consequence of life’s events.

The dictionary definition of “counselling” covers:

  • Interviewing
  • Guiding
  • Helping
  • Supporting
  • Exploring
  • Problem-solving
  • Suggesting
  • Advising
  • Empathizing
  • Communicating

There are many forms of counselling and several accepted theories. We provide telephone, virtual (online), or face-to-face counselling to assist participants who may be spatially and emotionally isolated.  

We are well informed about theories in counselling. In practice, we strive to provide an ambience that will enable clients and staff to jointly explore the problems and concerns troubling service recipients at this time in their lives. We can provide counselling in the following areas:

  • Alcohol and Substance Abuse
  • Anger Management
  • Corrections
  • Education
  • Family Violence
  • Grief and Loss
  • Marital
  • Other
  • Parenting
  • Professional Development
  • Rehabilitation
  • Separation
  • Trauma/critical incident debriefing

During this extraordinary period with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), there is widespread anxiety and uncertainty as people set out to juggle personal, family, organisational, and public needs. Just as there are emotional and regulatory challenges, including travel restrictions and a seeming weakening of such human rights as freedoms of mobility and association, there are also opportunities and strengths.

We are committed to providing a quality support service to assist individuals, families, groups, organisations, and communities in achieving their maximum desired potential and rights, including during the pandemic. The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (2019) defined human rights as being attributable to all individuals regardless of characteristics ranging from their ethnicity to language. 

Rights are inherent to all persons. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights is an example of a human rights covenant. The American Civil Liberties Union (2015) referred to this as “… a key international human rights treaty, providing a range of protections for civil and political rights”. The International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights is another example of a rights-based covenant that can guide establishing checks. These covenants include a range of international equality rights in income security, work, housing, etc.
