What Customers Say

Testimonial_Theresa_2

The image above does not portray the real person who provided this testimonial.

"I was ready to quit after seven years of marriage. The endless communication breakdowns, deep-seated misunderstandings and growing resentment in me had taken their toll. I was pretty indifferent in the first couple of counselling sessions but gradually found myself opening up to the counsellor and then eventually, to the problems we faced on hand.

For the first time in my marriage, I actually felt that my views were truly heard and taken into consideration without the conversation ending up in yet another ugly fight. I attribute this to our counsellor, Theresa, whose kindness and empathy and excellent psychotherapy skills created a safe environment where we could air our grievances constructively. By the third or fourth session, I had a change in mindset and decided within myself to put in effort into the marriage to make it work."

"We are a couple who have been married for almost a decade, with a young family. Challenges came as kids arrived. Though they're such blessings, the demands they placed on time, and the differences raised caused friction and arguments. Over time, these started to eat into our relationship. We were on the verge of giving up as emotions rose frequently and things didn't seem to get better no matter how hard we tried.

At the suggestion of a church elder, we started going for counselling. I was sceptical at first as I have never experienced or tried counselling before. We met Theresa, and she is warm, attentive and neutral. These attributes put us at ease and helped us open up.

Looking back, we realised what a blessing it has been. Just six months later, we are able to resolve conflicts better, and more specifically, we've learnt to recognise and deal with patterns in our behaviours."
