You may be able to save your relationship.

 

 If both of you are motivated and willing to work hard, you can reawaken the love, caring, and romance that you and your partner once enjoyed. I can help you to:

 

 •  Recover from infidelity and adultery

 

•  Rebuild trust

 

 •  Deal with jealousy

 

 •  Explore premarital issues

 

•  Build your own self-confidence and self-esteem

 

•  Decide whether to leave

 

 •  Decide whether to reconcile

 

 •  Build your communication skills

 

 The Couple therapy program is for those who want professional help for building a healthy relationship.

 

During therapy I will help you to identify and explore the patterns of belief and behaviors in roles and relationships which seem to have become set over time, and to enable you to decide where change would be desirable and to facilitate the process of establishing new and more fulfilling patterns.

 

 It can be used to gain more insight into each other, to learn new and more effective ways of communication, and to learn how to solve problems. Partners who make a real relationship work have certain skills. They know and practice core interpersonal skills, which allows them to form a relationship that can endure, deepen, and grow.

 

 I, whilst often actively intervening in client systems, strive to maintain a non-blaming and neutral position, respecting differences of culture, race, gender, sexual orientation etc. Therapy is often relatively short-term

  Life is too short to spend it unhappy.

 I can help you overcome problems like these:

 

•  Depression

 

•  Social anxiety

 

•  Performance anxiety

 

•  Panic disorders

 

•  Personal growth issues

 

•  Managing stress and many others

 

Individual therapy treatment plan is based on cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, psychodynamic, and existential theories. You will be assessed and individual treatment plan will be formulated to address your needs. Treatment may be improved with a combination of one or more of the following, couples therapy or group therapy.

 

 You have an option of face to face, online and telephone counseling

WHAT IS A PSYCO- EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT?

 

A psycho-educational assessment is a series of standardized tests to determine an individual’s intellectual ability, achievement levels, and social/emotional and behavioural functioning.

 

Educational assessment is the process of documenting, usually in measurable terms, knowledge, skill, attitudes, and beliefs. It is a tool or method of obtaining information from tests or other sources about the achievement or abilities of individuals.

 

These assessments are completed with children, adolescents, and adults to help identify underlying disabilities (e.g., learning disabilities, AD/HD, associated disorders, giftedness)which may be impacting their academic/work, social, and/or overall psychological well-being.

 

Depending on the outcome of the assessment, it is possible that accommodations and services can be arranged within the school, university or other community resources to help your child/ yourself achieve at a level that matches her or his highest potential.

Psychological Assessment

 Psychological assessment focuses on assessing the normal and abnormal nature of a person's overall functioning. The specific nature of these evaluations varies depending on the issues to be addressed, but they involve at least the following components:

 

 

·          clinical interview

 

 

 

·          mental status examination

 

 

·          psychological tests

 

 

 

 These evaluations can be brief, with the psychological testing limited to one or two short questionnaires which focus on specific concerns, or they can be long, comprehensive evaluations consisting of lengthy objective and projective measures of personality.
