Being a parent offers so many highs and lows, that at times it can seem almost unmanageable. It is a 24/7 responsibility, and that can be exhausting and draining. Interactive Counselling offers support to parents when they have trouble getting through on their own.
Families are complex. Whether it is your own family through blood or a blended family, there are many dynamics based on each individual family member. Interactive Counselling offers support to families when they hit a bump in the road that they just can’t get through on their own.
Interactive Counselling specializes in working with youth and teens through painful times, and helps them build the skills to overcome issues that they encounter. Teaching youth these skills at an earlier age can allow them the opportunity to have the ability to handle tough situations appropriately as an adult.
Regardless of how busy your life may be and the stressors you are experiencing, counselling gives you a specific time to stop and realize that you need to take time for yourself. It’s a great way to hold yourself accountable in taking the time for you!
Bumps in the road are to be expected (and are normal) within any relationship, but getting through them on your own can at times seem impossible. Having a third party involved can dramatically improve your relationship in ways that you might not expect.
Interactive Counselling’s goal is to break the stigma that goes along with counselling.
Interactive Counselling doesn’t believe that one mold fits all, so we offer a variety of counselling options to be as versatile as possible so you can pick what fits you best, such as:
During your counselling sessions, you'll be encouraged to express your feelings and emotions. By discussing your concerns with you, your counsellor can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to problems.
It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.
A particular issue probably led you to seek therapy. Your counsellor has to understand your surface problem(s) before she can get to the deeper issues. Being open and honest will help your counsellor, help you.
Your counsellor will ask you a series of questions about your life. For example, because family situations play an important role in who you are, she'll ask about your family history and your current family situation.
Other than knowing the reason you sought counselling, the therapist will attempt to find out if you're suffering from other symptoms. Your therapist will use this information to better understand your problem.
