COUNSELING: INDIVIDUAL, COUPLE & FAMILY
Counseling is a collaborative effort between the client and counselor in a quest of the client to resolve personal, social and psychological difficulties. In some cases the goal involves improving communication and coping skills, strengthening self-esteem, and or promoting behavior change and optimal social functioning and mental health.
- Individual Counseling provides an individual personal opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life. Individual counseling can help one address an array of personal topics in life such as anger, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, marriage and relationship challenges, parenting problems, school difficulties, career changes etc.
- Couple Counseling can assist with resolving conflicts and healing wounds, as well as reestablish realistic expectations and goals as over time every couple experiences concerns in the realm of closeness, stagnation, communication, abusive expressions & behaviors and so on. The goal of Couple Counseling is to alleviate the downward spiral of the relationship and restore unity and vitality.
- Family Counseling can be used to address an array of issues and is often sought following a life change which adversely affects family closeness & structure, especially around family roles and rules. Family Counseling can take a variant of forms, the counselor sometimes seeing the entire family in several sessions or seeing each individual member separately beforehand. Common issues tackled in family counseling are concerns around loss of loved ones, parenting style & approach, sibling conflict, new additions to the family structure or simply a general change in the family system.
- Group Counseling allows individuals to find out that they are not alone in their type of life challenge. To be involved in a group of peers who are in a similar place not only increases one’s understanding of the struggles around the topic but also the variety in the possible solutions available. At Edwards Mentoring & Social Services, groups have up to eight participants and revolve around a common topic like: Anger / Abusive Behavior Management, Domestic Violence, Parenting and Responsible Fatherhood.
